Tuning dispensing parameters of a PDMD

InDot employs real-time image analysis for droplet detection, droplet volume and velocity determination, as well as analysis of its flight path. If it is not 100% straight, the software precisely determines the degree of deflection as a basis to decide whether it is acceptable or a cleaning procedure needs to be applied. Even auto-tuning of the dispense parameters is available.
