The Graco UniXact is a fully automated precision dispense solution from Graco Advanced Fluid Dispense (AFD) that provides a single source for motion, fluid dispense and process monitoring for thermal interface management (TIM) applications.
Graco UniXact helps electronic manufacturing customers make the shift from thermal pads to dispensable material, which is widely used for thermal management of today’s smaller electronic devices.
The Graco UniXact platform increases precision and productivity, making it well suited for mass production of electronic components that continue to demand smaller form factors with miniaturised systems and increased circuit density. Not only is use of dispensable material less expensive than manual processes for placing die-cut pads or stickers, it means users can easily change form factors when necessary. Labour savings and increased productivity makes the overall cost of dispensables 30-40% less expensive than die-cut pads.
The easy to use Graco UniXact automated dispense solution is designed to handle TIM materials that are highly viscous and highly abrasive. The solution features the one gallon Dynamite Pump and Graco rod-positive displacement valves, which eliminate the drawbacks associated with time pressure valves. The system helps manufacturers improve production processes by minimising the risk of product defects and maximising throughput with cycle time improvements.
Along with equipment that dispenses materials accurately and consistently, Graco also offers the expertise to optimise processes for end users. Customers can choose from a variety of configurations tailored to their application. Graco’s sales team and application engineers work with customers to understand the specific application, materials and part form factor to design a system that improves throughput and takes the risk out of the production process. Graco has also invested in regional labs around the world to test and ensure the solution exactly meets the customers’ needs.
With its global reach and local distribution support, Graco offers customers a truly integrated solution, with one vendor offering superior training and support for motion, precision fluid dispense and process monitoring.
