Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLABLE APPLICATION OF A FLOWABLE MATERIAL TO A WORKPIECE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE REGULER L'APPLICATION D'UN MATERIAU FLUIDE SUR UNE PIECE A USINER
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method for applying a flowable material (4) such as anti-seize composition to a workpiece is provided which utilizes a plurality of elongated nozzles (17) insertably accommodated through a fixture plate (15) to deposit such material onto the workpiece in a predetermined pattern. The fixture plate (15) is provided with a corresponding number of apertures which accommodate different sizes and numbers of nozzles (17) so that material may be applied to a large variety of workpieces without significant maintenance and modification to the device. The fixture plate (15) is essential to define a predetermined clearance between an outlet through which the flowable material escapes from a nozzle (17) and a surface onto which such material is applied and further cleans the nozzles in between application cycles to prevent overrun onto a workpiece surface.

L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé permettant d'appliquer un matériau fluide (4) tel qu'une composition antigrippante sur une pièce à usiner. Ledit appareil comprend plusieurs buses allongées (17) insérées dans une plaque de fixation (15) de manière à déposer ce matériau sur la pièce à usiner de façon prédéterminée. Cette plaque (15) présente un nombre correspondant d'ouvertures logeant des buses (17) de tailles et nombres différents, de manière à ce que le matériau puisse être appliqué sur une grande variété de pièces à usiner sans travaux de maintenance et de modification importants du dispositif. La plaque de fixation (15) est essentielle pour définir un espace libre prédéterminé entre un orifice de sortie à travers lequel le matériau fluide sort d'une buse (17) et une surface sur laquelle ce matériau est appliqué. Ladite plaque nettoie en outre les buses entre les cycles d'application, ce qui empêche une surcharge de la surface de ladite pièce.
