Techcon Systems, a product group of OK International and a leading provider of fluid dispensing systems and products, introduces the updated TS6500CIM Techkit Mixer. Following positive feedback received from world-leading aerospace manufacturers, Techcon Systems has further enhanced the mixer, meeting and exceeding recommendations, while still maintaining the low cost of its predecessors.
The enhanced cartridge mixer provides complete automatic mixing of two-component materials filled inside a cartridge kit, such as “Techkits” and “Semkits.” The mixer features a redesigned plunger assembly that encloses the magnet used to sense the position of the plunger. The new guarding fully encloses the magnet to alleviate the magnet from being knocked out of position.
The TS6500CIM Series cartridge mixer incorporates many high-quality safety features including a two-hand start, a strengthened metal door with acrylic windows that is fitted with a safety interlock, preventing accidental start up, and an emergency stop button. With the introduction of a pressure relief valve, the plunger assembly depressurizes when the safety door is opened.
The enhanced TS6500CIM applies the correct amount of pressure on the rear of the cartridge plunger to prevent air from entering the cartridge during the mixing process. The adjustable automatic injection rod, which is used for injection Techkits, coupled with automatic precision level sensing offers an improved mix consistency, resulting in higher yields and lower rejects.
