Hot Melt System

Overview

Hot-melt systems are used for gluing carton packaging, business forms that consist of different materials. These systems are excellent for stabilizing pallets.

Nireco's specialized controllers are able to meet the needs of high-speed productivity and can automatically govern the amount, position and length of the application for speedy and consistent gluing to raise levels of productivity. When used in combination with a gluing inspection system, defects can be prevented before they happen

The hot-melt glue is melted in the tank shown in the system diagram and then passed under pressure through the heated hose to the nozzle where it is applied to the job. The encoder sends line speed signals to the controller, which also receives job position signals from the sensors. The controller in turn governs the operation of the nozzle.

These easy-to-use controllers can regulate gluing length regardless of the line speed.
Three model versions are available, each using a different method to decide gluing length.

hs_melter7.png HS melter MK-Ⅶ

Employs an internal heating method whereby the heater is in the middle of the hot-melt, which means that these melters have a much higher melt performance than previous models.

nozzle.png Applicator nozzles
The molten glue is forced under pressure from the heated hose at high speed and is continuously applied. Various kinds of nozzles are available for the gluing of different products. The nozzles are specially hardened to ensure a long life. Nozzle tip tubes of various shapes and diameters are available so allow hot-melt gluing to various specifications. The nozzle tubes are precision-processed for a long service life and consistent hot-melt application.

encorder.png Encoder
The encoder measures the timing of the gluing and the speed of the conveyor line, and sends signals to the controller.
