Potting Electronics with METER MIX® Systems


Potting Electronics

The METER MIX® PAR 3C is the first choice for all applications around potting electronics. The PAR 3C & PAR 3CT are optimally suited for other applications as well, including casting, moulding or bonding. The machine can be up and running in a very short period of time and is easy to handle, whether for beginners or experts. Thanks to the specifically developed ILD (in-line drive mechanism), the metering and mixing process is characterised by excellent flow rate and ratio control characteristics. The ILD also ensures accurate dispensing of two component materials with high mixing ratios or vastly differing viscosities. Polyurethane, epoxy, silicone and methacrylate can be consistently processed. Fully or semi-automatic applications can also be realized with these machines.
