What Does a Hot Melt Controller Do?
A hot melt adhesive controller regulates the temperature and volume of glue that is dispensed and also the pattern that is delivered. The pattern of glue is important to ensure consistency, precision and quality. While some manual applications — such as prototype or variable gluing — can work with any sort of pattern, most manufacturing and packaging applications are better suited with a specific and repetitive pattern of gluing.
Choosing a controller system for your hot melt adhesive system allows you to create a unique pattern that perfectly suits your gluing application. The right gluing pattern can:
- Allow you to deliver the right amount of glue exactly where you need it
- Create a faster work flow thanks to standardized work and product placement during gluing
- Help you save money on glue by optimizing the location and application of your glue
Automated hot melt application is suitable for a wide range of products in high-speed and high-volume production environments. Save time and ultimately money by selecting a hot melt adhesive pattern controller that applies glue consistently right where you need it. There’s no need to rework or clean up excess glue because your pattern controller applies glue to the right spots every time.
Different Patterns Available
Select the pattern controller that suits your type of gluing and the materials and products that need to be glued. You can also select the right hoses and nozzles that give you even more control and precision over your gluing. The pattern of gluing you do will depend on the shape, size and complexity of your materials and can include single bead, multiple beads, spray and other custom gluing patterns — such as spot gluing or intermittent bead gluing.
