    – Less plugging means more uptime

 

  • Continuous Supply

    – Automatically maintains required material in melter – saves time and labor

  • Reliable Performance

    – Minimizes maintenance
    – Removes the human factor

 

  • Improved Safety

    – Minimize burn hazards and operator strain

Tank-Free™ Design Minimizes Char

  • Consistent adhesive level helps prevent char formation
  • First-In, First-Out: Less molten volume means less time at temperature… less degradation, less char
  • Use low grade adhesives or ensure premium performance with high grade adhesives
  • Process vacuum conveyable adhesives at up to 25 lbs/hr

Superior Heated Hose Design

  • Built in over-temperature safety interlock
  • Designed with a silicon insulating layer
  • Up to temperature in less than 10 minutes

Design reduces adhesive char and skin formation.

The result – more uptime and lower maintenance costs.

Next Generation Advanced Display Module

  • Track Adhesive Usage

    – Positive displacement pump only moves when adhesive
    is dispensed – limits pump wear
    – Manage adhesive costs and ensure production quality

 

  • Event & Data Logging

    – Tracks data that helps customers ensure quality production
    – 175,000 past error/event list
    – 250,000 data entries (15sec interval)
    – 40+ days of continuous run time
    – Easy download via USB port

 

  • Intuitive User Interface

    – Graphics and text: Operators can learn to use the system quickly
    – Embedded diagnostics save service time
