Equipment for Adhesive Bonding

Abstract

This chapter describes the equipment required for manual adhesive bonding processes. For some readers, the comments about equipment may seem trivial, but they are important as nonobservance of these points can in practice lead to flawed bonded joints.

The individual components which make up mixing and dosing systems have been described and their special features outlined in an attempt to quantify the hitherto qualitative descriptions that have prevailed in the literature.
Thereafter, some basics of automation and robotics are outlined with a special excursion on the topic parameters affecting accuracy. Terminal opportunities of accelerated curing are explained using the examples of UV radiation and inductive heating.

Keywords Accelerated curing - automating adhesive application - induction heating - metering accuracy - mixing devices - pumps - UV radiation - valves
