Title: DYNAMIC POWDER DISPERSING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Apparatus and associated methods relate to dynamically generating commands to manage the flow rate of a powder as a function of time in response to arbitrarily shaped target parts (115) traveling along a conveyor (105). In an illustrative example, a controller (265) may receive shape information about each target part (115) as the part (115) travels along the conveyor (105). The controller (265) may dynamically generate commands to a pump to control the flow rate of powder to a reciprocating nozzle (255). In some embodiments, the controller (265) may generate motion trajectory commands to the reciprocating nozzle (255) to deliver a predetermined amount of powder to the target part (115) as the target part (115) travels along the conveyor (105).
