Process Needs Drive System Solutions
At EXACT Dispensing Systems the process needs of our customers drives us to develop the system solutions needed for their success. We do not bring an “off the shelf” product to satisfy a custom requirement. From our 40 plus years of experience, we know that all Meter/Mix Dispense processes require some level of customization. Several of our product offerings are the result of a custom solution that we designed for someone’s specific process needs. Below are a few customized Meter/Mix Dispense system solutions we offer.
Digi-Shot – Two-Component Cartridge Dispense
If the need is for a two-component cartridge dispense solution, we bring the “Digi-Shot”. This product can support all normal cartridge mix ratios while offering shot dispense control accuracy. The Digi-Shot is one of EXACT’s newest dispensing solutions that is quickly gaining in popularity. Learn more about the Digi-Shot.
BeadMaster – Full Production Cell or Linear Slide automation
When the Meter/Mix requirement is for a more complete custom proportioner such as the servo driven BeadMaster we don’t stop at the point of dispense. To automate the bead dispense system we offer a simple X-Y “linear slide” solution, which is used by many EXACT clients. For more complex automation, we also now offer a full production cell that includes the new Collaborative Robot dispensing solution option.
High-Density Vacuum Chamber
The need for more throughput in automated vacuum dispensing processes led to the development of our high-density vacuum chamber system where automation and improved processing speed and throughput was required.
We can also integrate with a customer-supplied conveyor. The ability to integrate into an efficient production process is critical for maximum success.
EXACT utilizes our 40 plus years of combined experience to optimize performance results. We are never afraid to “develop” a custom component when required.

Dedicated “Wet Testing” on every Meter/Mix Dispensing Solution
EXACT Dispensing conducts a dedicated wet test on every system solution we design, build and ship. When customer requirements are a priority we know that wet testing your custom solution with your resins, products and production team is critical.
Vacuum Encapsulation of Automotive Hybrid Drive Motors
New electric automobiles are moving towards hybrid power that incorporates both electric and gasoline as a fuel source. In hybrid-powered automobiles, the motors serve as one of the most critical parts. Installed in a very confined space within the fuel engine compartment, the motors must operate under very demanding conditions.
Precise Optical Fill Sensor Ensures Exact Fluid Levels
The Optical Fill Sensor (OFS) was designed and developed to satisfy an unmet need for a key client. The client’s application consisted of multiple cavities that needed to be filled with a required fill volume that is either uncertain or somewhat variable. This variability may be caused by an inconsistently shaped housing or from a component positioned in the housing that takes up a variable amount of volume. The key to the success of the process is to ensure a minimum fluid level is achieved. The OFS senses the height of the fluid and then closes the Meter / Mix Dispense valve when the proper level has been achieved. The OFS is typically combined with a failsafe volume measurement controlled by EXACT’s Meter/Mix Dispense System. The combination guarantees production output that passes quality requirements.
