Guidance Dispense Introduced. Guidance Dispense is a set of hardware and software components that can be utilized to implement a complete automated dispensing system. When these components are integrated with a PrecisePlace or other robot, they can automatically dispense adhesives, sealants and other fluids along both simple and arbitrarily complex paths. Path programming is performed using simple teach-and-repeat methods that can be augmented by machine vision to automatically correct for deviations in part position and orientation.
