Cold glue prewarmed

17 January, 2008 | Supplied by: Krones (Thailand) Co Ltd

When the adhesive containers are changed at cold-glue labellers, consumption usually shows an initial rise, since the adhesive is not yet at optimum processing temperature. With the Glue Dispenser from KIC Krones, the adhesive is warmed up to processing temperature in the pipes, and then transferred to the container provided. This leads to reduced adhesive consumption when changing the containers at the machine and, due to optimised temperature control, to a consistent adhesive quality. Within about three minutes, the prewarmed adhesive is ready, enabling the machine's operator to bring optimum-temperature containers to the labeller. Due to appropriate automation, handling is very simple.
