Gear Metering Systems

Gear pumps are the core of any gear system. They are based on the Archimedes' principle and differ from any of the delivery and metering systems mentioned below by the fact that they do not require any control elements. This means that no automatic or controlled valves are required - neither for the delivery process itself nor for determining the delivery direction.

The gear pumps used in metering and mixing systems are mainly based on two externally toothed gears of equal size (in case of very small types also internally toothed versions). The gears are located in a housing which features very little clearance between its walls and the gear.

    Coredis is used for the processing of especially light lowdensity 1K epoxies filled with micro hollow spheres. The special challenge in this case is that we are dealing with a reactive medium which remains in the material contacting systems after processing and could be subjected to a curing reaction. In order to prevent this, coredis features a specially developed structure. The material is supplied directly from the delivery container and the metering is carried out by means of a gear pump mounted on a heated follower plate. The material is guided through the connected heater hose to the dispending nozzle which continuously fills the core filler into the honeycombs.

    In case of production interruptions, all material contacting parts including the container can be dismounted in a few minutes and stored in a cold storage. Thus, no cleaning is required. If the production is restarted, the application can be resumed due to the heated components. This unique structure allows for the first time the continuous as well as precise metering of 1K core fillers and has the advantage that, after a simple expansion of the system, various materials can be processed on the same system.

    DOPAG systems in action
    In cooperation with coredis, DOPAG has developed a product for the processing of paste-like core fillers. This metering system is the result of intense cooperations with aircraft manufacturers, their suppliers as well as material producers. As the market leader in metering and mixing technology in the aerospace industry, DOPAG succeeded in developing a metering system that ensures the highest degree of reproducible quality and employee safety. For the first time, the integration into automation solutions allows for a fully automated mass production of honeycomb sandwich panels for aircraft interior equipment.
