Nordson SEALANT EQUIPMENT (Plymouth, Mich., USA) is displaying its positive rod displacement meter system, designed to provide composite manufacturers with high-precision dispensing of adhesives and sealants. Positive rod displacement metering systems for two-component composite materials are available from 0.2 cc up to 1,400 cc. Precision composite dispensing systems are fixed-ratio, from 1:1 to 10:1 and higher. Continuous flow metering systems are also available for larger volumes and continuous dispensing applications.
