Adhesive application solutions for the packaging industry

Jon Lawson

The new EcoStitch technology and the Kube melt-on-demand system are focused on reaching an adhesive usage optimization and lost-time reduction, which results in significant economic savings.

Specifically designed for the food & beverage industries, EcoStitch the gun is an evolutionary solution for electric hot melt application. Based on a precise adhesive dispensing control, it produces accurate adhesive dot patterns and reduces adhesive usage by up to 75%. Since this electric technology requires less consumable wear parts, downtime associated with valve failures and repairs as well as costs associated with purchasing parts are significantly reduced.

The Kube melt-on-demand system improves production efficiency by promoting adhesive stability and eliminating degradation problems. Thanks to its enclosed system with integrated auto-feed option, dirt and debris are kept away, reducing plugged nozzles and maintenance and promoting a safer work environment. Available in both pneumatic and electric formats, the Kube is the only one of its kind to feature three different mount configuration options to fit into any new or existing installation.
