Hernon Manfacturing Develops Next Generation UV Cure Dispensing System for Automotive Oil Seals
Designed to serve the automotive industry, the system applies a bead of Hernon’s UV FOG (Form-on-Gasket) adhesive around the circumference of a seal and then cures it with a UV light.
Creating a seal on a seal, the combination of Hernon’s UV Cure Precision Dispensing System and Hernon’s UV FOG sealant adds value and functionality to seals used in automobiles, engines for heavy duty equipment, and the like.
UV FOG is an EB/UV curable adhesive product that provides excellent adhesion to glass and to plastics such as polyester, PVC, cellulose acetate, or nylon. This product is solvent-free and can be completely cured in seconds.
“Our new UV Cure Adhesive Dispensing System is capable of dispensing four units per minute and is adaptable to one or two size seals,” said Edgardo Rodriguez, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hernon Manufacturing. “Potentially, you could utilize this dispensing system for up to four different size seals.”
Hernon Manufacturing provides the exact dispensing equipment and UV curing machines needed for the type of application and the product being applied. Refining each machine detail to produce precise equipment that distributes the exact amount of product in the most effective way is standard procedure in Hernon’s equipment manufacturing process. To ensure no waste and inefficiencies, the parts per minute (PPM) and the number of shifts per day are even taken into account to construct a machine durable enough to withstand even the heaviest use.
“We are pleased to announce our first sale of the second generation UV Cure Dispensing System. Our customer came to us needing to replace another company’s inconsistent processing solution. Hernon Manufacturing’s next generation dispensing system has been well received,” added Rodriguez. “Once again, by offering the dispensing and chemical solution, Hernon demonstrates its commitment to provide ‘The Total Solution’ to customer problems.”
