Since the premier of the Scorpion at productronica 2011 in Munich, Essemtec has noted a record high in demand. Due to its outstanding price-performance ratio, the new dispensing machine is among the best dispensers in the world. Its accuracy of ±25 μm is extraordinary and it can dispense up to 100,000 dots per hour.

It’s just incredible,” Florian Schildein, Marketing & Sales Manager at Essemtec AG states. “Since the product launch last autumn, we have been overwhelmed with inquiries for our Scorpion. Many customers are enamored with the fantastic price-performance ratio of this dispensing machine.”

Within the Scorpion, Essemtec’s engineers used the most modern, accurate systems that drive and steering technology can offer today. The exceptional performance is achieved due to the new dispenser base, the Paraquda machine platform. Its XY-portal is built on a robust mineral cast chassis that provides excellent damping and smooth motion at high speed. The H-Drive features precision linear measuring devices to guarantee highest accuracy for demanding tasks.

The easy programming and operation allow for the use of a wide range of dispensing applications. The Scorpion can be equipped with up to four dispensing valves of any kind, in which case two valves are running in parallel. Each of the dispensing heads is equipped with an independent, highly accurate C-drive with an extra-large 85 mm (3.34") stroke.

The ideal valve for an application is determined by the user or by process specialists. For maximum performance of the Scorpion, Essemtec recommends the Jet valve that provides a wide application range. It allows drops to be shot over several millimeters and, therefore, does not need vertical motion.

The working range of the Scorpion is specified at 650 x 500 mm (25.6 x 19.7") for a standalone machine and 510x470 mm (20x18.5") for inline machines. This is bigger than most of the other dispensing systems available on the market. The working area can be used flexibly and can be equipped with customer-specific substrate holders.
