GPD Global, manufacturer of high quality precision fluid dispensing systems, conformal coating, and component prep systems offers the ideal tabletop robots (Catalina Series) for precision dispensing.

A tabletop system does not mean “no features” - on the contrary, Catalina, the simple and efficient dispense robot, provides you with standard features such as automatic vision, laser surface sensing, nozzle alignment, and calibration. A tilt and rotate model is also available to meet your production needs. The Catalina benchtop series can be configured with an optional heated work area.

Catalina tabletop robot was developed for precision dispensing with a budget in mind. Enjoy greater precision, more productivity, and higher repeatability for your dispensing jobs!

Compact / Easy to Use

Catalina, the compact dispense robot, is easy to learn with its computer-based software and Windows operating system. It uses easy point based teaching for all axis movement with the ability to set point jobs and various parameters.

Check out the tilt and rotate model.


Applications using solder pastes, glues, encapsulants, gasketing, underfills, conductive adhesives, and more benefit from a Catalina tabletop dispensing system.

System Capabilities

  • 3-axes (X, Y and Z) or 4-axes (X, Y, Z and Rotation)
  • Automatic Vision: Alignment and positioning with high resolution camera
  • Laser Non-Contact Surface Sensing or Contact Surface Sensing
  • Create dispense path using camera teach or on- screen graphic editing
  • Compatible with CAD graphics (DXF, Gerber, and JPEG)
  • User-friendly Graphic User Interface
  • I/O ports provide the flexibility to add advanced features/equipment
  • And more...

Programming is done using a computer. User-friendly graphic editing allows users to effortlessly create a dispense path.  For complex path programming, AutoCAD DXF files can be imported. For uneven surfaces, the system can use the laser to trace a dispense path for automatic dispense height adjustment.

Catalina benchtop dispense robot systems are compatible with GPD Global’s full line of dispensing pumps:  Precision Auger, NCM5000 Jetting, Volumetric Progressive Cavity Displacement (PCD), and Time Pressure. A pump is available to suit your application and dispense requirements.
