GPD Global, a manufacturer of precision fluid dispensing systems for high-volume 24/7, low-volume/high-mix, and R&D production, have expanded the performance of its automated dispense systems. The automated fluid dispensing machine is capable of dispensing fluids and performing Pick & Place for simple components.

The multifunctional systems by GPD Global have closed-loop process controls which help to deliver high quality and produce maximum product yield.

The versatility of the systems reduces operator dependencies and manufacturing costs.
