Improved Syringe and Cannula Bonding with LED Curable Adhesives and Equipment
Automated assembly of cannulas and syringes has become more efficient with LEDcure adhesives from Panacol-USA and Bluepoint LED curing equipment from Honle. In this indexing rotary table assembly process, Panacol-USA LEDcure adhesive 7041 is dispensed from air-pressure activated valves into the hubs of preassembled syringes. The ideal viscosity and flow properties of the 7041 adhesive allow it to instantly fill the hub and form a consistent fillet around the cannula. Rapidly indexing to the next station, the adhesive is cured in fractions of a second with two LED curing units. Honle LED equipment compliments the 7041 adhesive in this automated process by providing instant on/off control with full power, minimized heat, precise dosing, and continuous monitoring for a consistent and controlled process.
