Graco introduces the DC12, a new high-volume metering system. Built to dispense large amounts of adhesive and tooling paste materials, this system can be used in the wind energy market, according to the company. The DC12 features Graco's NXT air-motor technology, which offers a modular design.

"The DC12 is the ideal unit for manufacturers of wind turbine blades," says Doug Brady, product marketing manager for sealants and adhesives equipment at Graco. "This unit marks the beginning of a new generation of high-volume metering systems in the wind energy market."

The DC12's EnGarde ratio monitoring system has optional external flow meters to offer ratio monitoring independent of the ratio and supply system.
