    Dispensing Module

    Ballandseat modules are used in combination with Saturn nozzles, allowing easierchangeout of nozzle sizes and eliminating the need to stock multiple reducedcavitymodules with different orifice sizes. Needle-and-seat modules are used in combination withSureBead nozzles. SureBead nozzles perform similar to reduced cavity and zero cavitynozzles. Because of improved design efficiency, adhesive bead volume may vary slightlyfrom equivalent Blue Series RC and ZC modules. Adjust the adhesive pressure tocompensate.

    A MiniBlue II applicator may have 1-8 modules. Air is supplied constantly to a modulethrough a solenoid valve. When the applicator is not being triggered, air will flow through themodule's airclose port to keep the module needle on its seat. When triggered, the solenoidvalve will direct air into the airopen port, lifting the needle from its seat to dispense theadhesive.

    EasyOn Feature

    See Figure 6. All MiniBlue II applicators use the EasyOn feature. The EasyOn feature on themodule mates with the EasyOn feature on the applicator body. The EasyOn feature allowsthe module to be installed onto the applicator body, regardless of the orientation of theapplicator body.
