EXACT Exchange Newsletter Q4 2017
What is the recommended product maintenance (PM) for an EXACT meter mix system?
As with all metering systems, much depends upon on volumetric usage and characteristics of your formulation. With a heavily filled or abrasive material, EXACT’s large volumetric displacement and numerous incremental shots per stroke reduces motion (wear). This has proven to provide longer production times and less required maintenance.
Will PM require replacement of parts?
As with any piece of equipment that has moving parts, it eventually requires attention. Indications of wear can easily be detected with EXACT’s “open air” design and positive system pressure approach. Indication does not stop production. It simply notifies the operator that attention will be required at the convenience of your schedule.
How readily available are parts if they need replacement?
Most components are in stock and are available to ship. EXACT is the manufacturer of these systems from start to finish and has a full CNC machining facility to do so. We not only stock consumables but system componentry as well. “We make it so that you can have it when you need it”!
What is the reliability of the equipment?
EXACT prides itself in precision and reliability. Shot size is measured and controlled within 1150 counts per inch of stroke accuracy and ratio can easily be verified any time desired or required with a simple “ratio check” procedure that takes seconds.
Can end users perform maintenance and repairs, or does it always require a member from EXACT to evaluate?
Your choice! Plant personnel can take advantage of the free training at EXACT during the system acceptance which emphasizes operation and maintenance for your system’s longevity and production process. Training at your facility as well as service calls and maintenance are available and as always, our tech team is available and free of charge over the phone!
What experience does EXACT have with mixing wide potting ratios?
EXACT has been building systems for more than 35 years with the range of ratios typically from 1:1 to 10:1 and in some cases even higher. We know materials and understand what level of attention to components in the system build is needed to assure long life including the correct heating and agitation of the material to lower the viscosity helping to make sure air free material is being delivered throughout the system. Exact Metering technologies help assure consistent results.
