Full-featured Benchtop Dispense System - Catalina

Full-featured and compact benchtop dispensing robot offering accurate and repeatable dispense results!

A benchtop system does not mean "no features". The Catalina benchtop system is a full-featured platform with these standard features: automatic vision, laser surface sensing, and nozzle alignment.

Our semi-automatic dispensing robot provides you with accurate and repeatable dispense results. Applications using conductive adhesives, solder pastes, glues, gasketing, and more benefit from the powerful system features:

Full-featured Benchtop Dispensing Robot
  • Easy to learn, computer-based software with Windows operating system.
  • Automatic alignment and positioning with high resolution camera.
  • Create dispense paths using camera teach or on-screen graphic editing.
  • Import DXF files for complex path programming.
  • I/O ports provide the flexibility to add advanced features/equipment.

Standard Features:

3D Dispensing

Laser traces the dispense path and measures surface variation, then adapts height of the dispense tip to maintain a consistent gap.

Image Alignment

Vision system locates alignment points to account for product rotation.

Automatic XYZ Nozzle Calibration

Locates dispense tip in X, Y, Z for accurate fluid placement.

Graphic Edit & DXF Support

User-friendly graphic editing to create a dispense path. 2D AutoCAD DXF files are supported.

Matrix Dot Dispensing

Easily duplicate a common pattern in a matrix.

Fill Area

Multiple types of fill area and dispense patterns. Easy to teach.

Dispense | Measure | Vision

The combination of dispensing, measuring, and vision functions can reduce operating time. Distance can be measured between dots, circles, circle diameter, circle center, and stripe width.


Non-contact surface sensing.

Add-On Options

Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) - Real time process control for pump. Constantly monitors and adjusts fluid pressure entering the pump to maintain optimal pump operation condition.

Heated Work Table - For heating substrates up to 90° C (194° F).

Fluid Level Detect - Notifies operator when fluid level attains set point.

Contact Surface Sensor - Alternative to laser surface sensor. A contact probe may be used to physically touch a product in order to locate the surface.
