SOLUTION PROVIDER HELP DESK:
NineSigma, representing a Global Dispensing Corporation, invites proposals for systems, components, and methods to enable the non-contact dispensing of highly viscous fluids with high precision and accuracy, with low waste and no stringing.
Highly viscous and non-Newtonian fluids can be challenging to transport, package and dispense due to their unique properties. Many molten polymers are non-Newtonian fluids, as are many commonly found substances such as syrup, honey, adhesives, starch suspensions, paint, blood, and shampoo. Many of these materials are sticky or fiber forming. Often times, custom components are needed to handle the particular properties of the fluid to be dispensed.
A common strategy to increase the ease of handling a highly viscous fluid is heating to reduce viscosity. While this can increase the ease with which these liquids can be handled, they still have a tendency to string when dispensed. This stringing increases waste, errant dispensing, and cleaning time, while decreasing speed and final product quality. NineSigma’s client is seeking systems, components, methods and expertise to enable the non-contact dispensing of highly viscous fluids with high precision and accuracy, with low waste and no stringing.
