PVA Receives Award for New MR2 Metered Rod Dispenser at APEX

Jan 30, 2019

PVA, a global expert in dispensing, coating and custom automation, is pleased to announce that it received a 2019 NPI Award in the category of Dispensing Equipment for its new MR2 Metered Rod Dispenser. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

The MR2 is a versatile servo-controlled rod dispenser for processing single or dual component chemistries requiring a high level of dosing accuracy. Utilizing a volumetric displacement concept, the MR2 is capable of processing a wide range of chemistries, including viscous filled or abrasive materials, without concern to slight material changes from batch-to-batch or due to atmospheric conditions. This results in a more accurate dispensing process for difficult to process chemistries.

Utilizing a dual rod system, the MR2 can process 2K materials with mix ratios as wide as 15:1. For 1K chemistries, the MR2 provides the flexibility to alternate metering chambers to greatly reduce refill time, resulting in greater throughput. Each metering chamber is independently controlled, enabling users to easily alter the mix ratio and flow rate in a package mounted directly at the application point.

“PVA is honored to be recognized for this award,” says Jon Urquhart, Director of Applications Engineering at PVA. “The MR2 was designed to address the challenges of applications that require high accuracy metering of one and two- part fluids that range from potting compounds to thermal interface materials while also allowing for easy maintenance.”

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
