The Alternative Design

In order to design the dispenser to fit the requirement of the client, some alternative design should be given out. It is the first step for the whole project.

For the alternative design 1, there are three dispensing heads in each dispenser. Its advantages are that 1 dispenser will be able to inject 3 transformers at the same time. Also, it will be much easier to clean 1 main channel.

However, there is still some disadvantages and uncertainty. For the dispenser with 3 injector heads, it will be hard to maintain the same pressure and flow amount of epoxy. It may cause the imperfect product. Also, the flat bottom of the tank will be difficult for the epoxy to be injected.

Alternative design 2

The dispenser valve unit can be easily assembled by the rivet system.

Also, when the user wants to clean the whole dispenser, the user just needs to loosen the rivet during cleaning.

However, the rivet pattern of the valve will be easily loosened by the frequent use.

Alternative design 3

The design 3 is just the modification of design 2.

The epoxy can be easily flow down to the injector by the sliding angle of the tank. Also, when the user wants to clean the dispenser system, he only needs to replace the plastic injector to the dispenser. It will not cause any loosen to the rivet pattern.
