The source of metering accuracy
The meter is a dispensing system’s core component. It regulates the material flow from material supply to the application. The ideal metering technology is chosen, according to the dispensing process and its requirements.
Shot Meters: As Precise As It Gets
Shot meters are the most frequently used metering technology supplied by Atlas Copco IAS. They have a fixed volume material chamber, which is emptied by a volumetric dispensing unit. The piston or displacer is driven either pneumatically or electrically, enabling precise dispensing regardless of material viscosity.
Volume Controlled Application
Electric shot meter technology allows precise volume control for applications, achieving an accuracy of up to ±1%. An accurate volume control optimizes the amount of adhesive or sealant material that is dispensed, reducing waste.
Full Process Control
In combination with our System Controllers, it is possible to perform data collection, diagnostics and statistics, thus enabling precise monitoring and tracking history. Events and alarms are also available to streamline production and minimize unexpected downtime.
Excellent Abrasiveness Handling
Shot meters are an excellent choice when working with abrasive materials. Due to their construction design, shot meters provide a longer life-cycle compared to other techniques, such as gear meters.
