Nordson's PatternJet(TM) Labeling System with New EcoPattern(TM) Technology Optimizes Adhesive Usage, Supports Green Packaging Initiatives
Duluth, Georgia - July 30, 2008 - Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN)today announced the addition of breakthrough EcoPattern(TM) technology to its highly successful PatternJet(TM) hot melt adhesive labeling system. Offering adhesive savings up to 90 percent, the EcoPattern technology allows bottlers who use the PatternJet system to gain better control of their materials and energy usage, improve recyclability and optimize operational efficiency.
"By substantially decreasing the amount of adhesive required, the EcoPattern technology allows manufacturers to both meet their efficiency targets and respond effectively to the growing demand for environmentally-friendly packaging," said Olivier Huss, labeling industry sales manager.
Leveraging the EcoPattern technology, the PatternJet system's non-contact adhesive guns deliver tiny spirals of adhesive onto any size container with little or no stringing, offering a raw materials savings of up to 90 percent as compared to conventional wheel-pot applicators.
By more accurately applying adhesive at any speed, the system also enables better process control and higher production efficiency, while significantly reducing maintenance costs and scrap rates. Moreover, it eliminates adhesive circulation and provides superior system insulation, offering more than 50 percent energy savings as compared to a typical wheel-pot labeling system.
The PatternJet system's easy-to-change replacement components allow for greater application and system compatibility, while its integrated, closed-system design reduces maintenance, minimizes line stoppages and improves safety.
