Devices that are used for applying bonding materials to surfaces, joints or other machines are categorized as Adhesive Dispensing Equipment. The equipment varies in range, design, and complexity. They can be as simple as a caulk gun
or complicated polyvinyl resin applicators. All materials that can be used to bind to one or more surfaces are considered part of adhesives
. Examples include putties, silicones, cement, glues, and resins. The commonest types of Adhesive Dispensing Equipment are the handheld dispensers such as the industrial glue gun and hot glue sticks. In most of the specialized tasks, it is advisable to go for the manual adhesive dispensing equipment. This is because they allow you to easily control the adhesive application. However, there are instances when you might need power-drive applicators that use pressure to apply the adhesive. This type of adhesive dispensing equipment is suitable when working on extensive and hidden sections. Power-driven applicators can also be used to apply adhesives of any form, from slurry to spray and liquid. If you need to apply a lot of adhesive, the best machine is the heavy-duty adhesive dispensing equipment. They have specialized nozzles and are programmed to apply a lot of adhesives in a very short time. This is why they are preferred for industrial production where large materials need to be held together. Adhesive Dispensing Equipment used for applying adhesives can use either syringing or stenciling. Stenciling means that a sheet is placed on top of the material to be bonded with. For the equipment that uses syringing, the adhesive is released specifically to the point where it is required. This means that the process is more efficient and creates less waste.
