preeflow Partner Scanmaster Automates Dispensing Processes
Cembrane in Lynge, Denmark, produces and exports ceramic filters to more than 20 countries under the motto “Clean Water for Life”. In the production of the filter manufacturer the individual components had to be glued together by hand. This took up a lot of working time.

In 2018 Cembrane invested in a robot. The aim of the investment was to integrate the Universal Robots Cobot into the manufacturing process. The application of the adhesive is an important step in the production process. In order to support this step with the robot, Cembrane needed help. And so, the preeflow partner Scanmaster came into play.
Scanmaster, a specialist in automated dispensing processes, was able to develop a unique dispensing solution for Cembrane: A robotic cell in which several ceramic plates are bonded in a semi-automatic bonding process. The robot was programmed to dispense 2-component adhesive with high precision onto flanges using a preeflow eco-DUO dispenser.
The new production process minimizes production time. More filters can be produced in less time. In addition, the quality of the manufactured products has also improved. The dispenser enables a more precise and uniform application of adhesive to the component than was previously possible by hand.
Cembrane is very satisfied with the new product quality. And the investment in the automated dosing solution is more than justified. "We are incredibly pleased with our robot solution, which has automated our production. It is a dispensing solution that fully meets our quality requirements, so we are happy," says Lasse Andreassen, CEO of Cembrane.
Scanmaster distributes ViscoTec and preeflow dispensing pumps and microdispensers. And so, the specialists have designed and delivered a comprehensive solution with preeflow components. Integrated into a unique cell with a robot for a semi-automatic process. The result for Cembrane is a higher quality product for the customer and an optimized production time.
