In a world of intensifying global competition and accelerating change,
recipients of the ML Awards have distinguished themselves by embracing
breakthrough innovation and enabling their companies to anticipate and
respond to customers with unmatched agility.
The award winning SmartDispenser® was developed to address
global manufacturers' needs for process control applied to their fluid
dispensing applications and web based devices able to network with
developing MES systems. The market had been dominated by antiquated
machines that use compressed air to operate. Often customers had to
settle and live with the variation of air pressure resulting in costly,
out of control dispensing processes.
The SmartDispenser's design offers a unique business
solution. The patented process control immediately eliminates problems
significantly increasing profits to the bottom line. The stability of
the AirFree® Linear Drive System eliminates maintenance and
daily adjustments. Replacing air pressure with electricity drastically
reduces energy costs. The combination provides a factory upgrade with an
outstanding return on investment with a low total cost of ownership.
"We're honored to receive this recognition for our focus on
delivering innovative, best in class products," said Fishman President
Scott Beebe. "The SmartDispenser® is a prime
example of equipment that is part of the ongoing Industrial
Revolution; it is disruptive technology that is upsetting the
status quo of installed fluid dispensers operated by compressed air."
Scott goes on to say, "The industrial internet is under development, MES
systems are rapidly replacing old MRP systems, the age of web based
manufacturing with network communication, control and real time data is
upon us. Our web based SmartDispenser®
technology has the infrastructure to instantly plug into and communicate
with an MES host giving our customers the ability to maximize their
investment in these factory upgrades. Instant customization of our base
product through manufacturing Apps activae these communication
protocols on an individual basis allowing the customer to decide method
and form of how they communicate with their MES. The result is
maximum reduction of human error, unprecedented reporting, lower
deployment costs, lower total cost of ownership with significant
"Air compressors are the most expensive line item in a manufacturing
facility. They are also a major contributor to greenhouse gasses.
A side benefit of AirFree® technology is the
elimination of the air compressor from manufacturing thus lowering the
facility's carbon footprint."
Additionally, tablets, mobile devices and computer operating systems are
being designed with incredible similarity thanks to introduction and
success of Apple's (News - Alert) iPhone. Years ago operating systems such as Linux,
Apple OS X and Microsoft Windows had vastly different user interfaces,
functioning independent of mobile counterparts. All current operating
systems such as Android (News - Alert), Bada, iOS, Windows 8 are developed to mirror
the iPhone. The SmartDispenser® design follows suit with a
GUI interface similar to the iPhone (News - Alert). This eases training and product
acceptance as new operators are instantly comfortable with the
The installed base of SmartDispenser® systems has grown
significantly in the past year and projections for 2014 reflect a
substantial increase over 2013.
The SmartDispenser® is a forward-thinking design meeting the
expectations and demands of assembly fluid bonding in the 21st
Century manufacturing facility. The dramatic improvement driven by
Fishman Corporation through the SmartDispenser® makes it the
worthy recipient of the 2014 ML Award for Product Leadership.
