Hendersonville, TN (PRWEB) July 01, 2015
Designed to the highest industry standards for quality and performance, ITW Dynatec hot melt systems are simple to operate, highly customizable and represent a “best-total-value” for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the packaging industry.
ITW Dynatec will feature its two most popular hot melt adhesive supply units at ProPak: the Dynamini™ and the DynaPack™, along with its BF MicroBead™ Auto Adhesive Applicator. The company offers a comprehensive range of hot melt equipment and accessories to accommodate an equally broad range of packaging requirements. All of its melting and applicator units can be configured to work with other industry-standard hot melt controllers, feeders and hoses.
Show attendees will have the opportunity to see a live demonstration of ITW Dynatec hot melt technology in action. Company representatives will be operating a carton sealing system equipped with the Dynamini™ Adhesive Supply Unit, the BF MicroBead™ Applicator, and the TPC-2™ Timer Pattern Controller. In addition, several other exhibitors at ProPak will be running equipment that uses ITW Dynatec hot melt technology.
“We’re demonstrating our DynaPack ASU and BF MicroBead applicator at ProPak because they have been proven to be a winning combination worldwide, and continue to grow in popularity among packaging OEMs throughout Asia,” commented Scott Holzwarth, Global Business Unit Manager - Packaging for ITW Dynatec. Holzwarth, along with representatives from ITW Dynatec Suzhou, as well as executives and technical personnel from the greater ITW Dynatec global community, will be present at ProPak this year.
ITW Dynatec has supported the Chinese packaging industry for almost 10 years with complete hot melt solutions, including manufacturing, assembly, inventory and on-site technical support. With a facility in Suzhou, a sales office in Shanghai, and regionally located service technicians, regional OEMs benefit from shorter lead times for equipment and replacement parts.
The company services OEMs throughout the country, ranging from regional to multinational organizations that incorporate ITW Dynatec hot melt technology into automated assemblies of corrugated boxes, cartons, trays, cases and other packaging formats requiring precision adhesive application. ITW Dynatec customers in China represent the full spectrum of consumer package goods, including food and beverage, health and beauty, pharmaceutical, household, pet and industrial products. The Suzhou plant features a test lab where customers can evaluate various hot melt assemblies.
As more people move into urban hubs, pre-packaged food and beverage product consumption in China continues to rise, and with it, the requirements on the entire packaging supply chain to keep pace with demand. “ITW Dynatec recognizes the growth in this area, and the pressure on packaging OEMs to deliver,” Holzwarth commented. “With proven hot melt solutions, and an established regional presence, we are well positioned to meet the expanding needs of OEMs throughout Asia. We know the market. We know bonding and sealing. And we know just how critical the optimum performance of adhesive applications is for a packaging line.”
ITW Dynatec hot melt solutions featured at ProPak China 2015 include:
Dynamini™ Adhesive Supply Unit (ASU)
The Dynamini™ ASU, which has been designed for optimal performance, reliability and simplified daily operation, represents exceptional value in a small hot melt unit. It features ITW Dynatec’s patented Melt-on-Demand™ hopper, which virtually eliminates adhesive degradation, and comes with a seven-year standard warranty. The Dynamini system provides accurate, proportionate temperature control for the hopper, hoses and applicators. Sequential start-up delays may be programmed for turn-on of the hoses and heads. The temperature control can interlock the parent machine so that production automatically begins when adhesive has reached the programmed application temperature.
ITW Dynatec’s patented Melt-on-Demand™ hopper works in conjunction with the Dynamini ASU. With Melt-on-Demand, not all adhesive in the hopper needs to be melted for the unit function. This allows the system to be operation-ready much faster than conventional equipment. Exclusive Dynamini technology virtually eliminates the problem of charring. Because the heat is applied to the bottom of the hopper, the glue at the bottom is used first and char build-up on the sidewalls of the hopper is also minimized. Equipment maintenance is further reduced because the hopper needs to be drained to purge char with less frequency.
BF MicroBead™ Applicator
The BF MicroBead™ applicator is available with single-port or dual-port pivoting modules, providing flexibility for set-up and reduction in the number of applicators required. The compact design is both easy to install and maintain, while the rapid cycle speeds make it an ideal choice for high-speed applications. An air open/air close design provides highly precise and uniform adhesive patterns and bead placement.
DynaPack™ Adhesive Supply Unit (ASU)
The DynaPack™ ASU is a computer-controlled hot melt supply unit that is both durable and reliable, offering control features and options that conform to a broad variety of manufacturing needs. The metric-standard design and icon-driven control panel is internationally operator friendly and easy to use. The hose connections and footprint mountings are compatible with competitive units and hoses for simplified drop-in replacement.
