Single Pump Body Solution
Introducing our advanced auger pump technology: the Precision Auger Pump. This pump design provides your process development with a broad range of functionality. It is compatible with an extensive range of auger/cartridge assemblies.
The Precision Auger Pump works with mid-to-high viscosity fluids such as glues, conductive and non-conductive adhesives, and pastes. With the introduction of our newest 062 diameter auger, this pump can repeatedly dispense solder paste for 01005 components.
The Precision Auger pump also interfaces with our Real Time Process Control System (FPC) that provides a consistent fluid feed to the auger/cartridge assembly rather than a constant supply of reservoir pressure. FPC improves dispense repeatability over the full range reservoirs. When using large reservoirs, like a 6 oz cartridge, we recommend using the FPC system.
The Precision Auger Pump can be programmed for many different aspects including acceleration, deceleration, speed, and in the case of dots, an exact amount of rotation. A servo motor and a high-resolution, precision encoder control the pump. Using the motion system to control the pump ensures repeatable operation and uniform speed when fluid viscosity changes. An optional body heater is available to assist with stabilizing fluid viscosity.
For mid viscosity (15,000 cps) to high viscosity fluids

- Compatible with our Real Time Process Control System (FPC) for enhanced dispense repeatability
- Available with Body Heat and/or Syringe Heat
Encoded Pump Programming
The Precision Auger pump uses a servo motor to control pump rotation. An encoder monitors auger position. Precise motion achieved by the encoder results in uniform dispensing with much greater accuracy than is available from a non-encoded pump.
When programming dots or singular dispenses, the operator may set the number of counts per dispense.
When programming lines or area fills, the operator may set the dispense rate of the pump. This determines the constant speed of the pump during operation.
In both cases, the acceleration, deceleration, and reverse motion parameters can be set. These parameters can be saved to a specific pattern (shape), placed in programs and used as often as you like. Being able to save dispense parameters with a specific pattern – not just to a single aspect of dispense – makes programming large varieties of product using similar components very easy.
