GPD Global’s Latest System.

Altus Group, a leading distributor of capital equipment for the electronics assembly industry, is now offering its customers in the UK and Ireland GPD Global's automated dispense systems which in response to customer demand, now have an integrated Pick & Place capability.

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 High Precision Dispensing System (MAX Series) and large format DS Series can be used for fluid dispensing and pick and place operations, with parts/substrates now presented in trays or pallets.

The multifunctional systems by GPD Global have closed-loop process controls which help to deliver high quality and produce maximum product yield. It also incorporates software programming which is both simple and intuitive, making it easy to use during manufacture. The versatility of the systems reduces operator dependencies and manufacturing costs.

Richard Booth, Managing Director of Altus said: “The new dispense system has added a new option to our portfolio for customers requiring some Pick and Place functionality within the dispensing equipment.

“GPD provide a range of high speed dispensing systems, from benchtop lab machines to high speed in-line production systems, suitable for solder paste, adhesives, or other materials. This new dispensing machine is a welcome addition to our range of products, and we are already seeing an interest from our customers across the UK and Ireland.” www.altusgroup.co.uk
