Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Conoptic DM-2320
The CONOPTIC® DM-2000 Series was designed to be dispensed through automatic meter mix equipment. The dispense head can be a single stream or, the more common, multi-stream design. The multi-stream dispense heads will allow the doming of multiple labels in a "single shot" technique. It is possible to dome sixteen or more labels at one time.
Generally, the polyurethane is dispensed on a label or decal at a central point or along a single vector. The polyurethane will flow to the edge of the label/decal over the next several minutes. The surface tension of the liquid is designed to resist flowing over the edge of most vinyl labels. The vinyl thickness, ink, dome height, and label configuration are all factors which effect the polyurethane holding the edge.
These products process well in the automated equipment required for high volume or complicated part production. This automation can include precision decal placement and numerically controlled XYZ movement of the dispense tubes. This level of automation is only necessary on the most complicated shapes.
