Also referred to as meter-mix-dispense, this means the
dispensing machine meters (measures) the doming materials by volume and
then mixes the components before depositing the resin onto the products.
This refers to the dispensing machine's mixing unit, which is
responsible for blending doming materials. A static mixer is often a
simple, rigid, plastic tube that houses a series of helical elements. As
both components of a two-part polyurethane resin enter the static mixer,
they're sheared and blended together when they pass over each element.
The result is a homogenous mixture ready for deposit. Static mixers are
common in both entry-level manual and high-end automatic dispensing
The dynamic mixer is similar to the static version in that it relies on
the helical elements, but it also consists of a pneumatic motor that is
integral to the dispensing head. This motor complements the static
mixer's shearing and blending effect with rotary motion, which provides
Some dispensing machines rely on pistons to measure the resin and
catalyst. The pistons' cylindrical housings are sized to conform to the
volumetric ratio of the doming materials, 1:1 and 2:1 being the most
common configurations. Upon actuation, the pistons push the precise
amount of each component toward the mixer.
These are another means used to deliver predetermined amounts of doming
components to the dispensing machine's mixer. The gears, controlled by a
servo motor, are machined with precise volumetric spaces between each
tooth, which makes them the metering system. Controlled amounts of
doming materials are metered as they're captured by the teeth of the
