Graco Announces the InvisiPac® Pattern Control System

Allowing operators to place the correct amount of adhesive in exactly the right location

Minneapolis, MN – Graco Inc. (NYSE: GGG), a world leader in fluid handling products and systems, announces the new InvisiPac® Pattern Control System, designed for use with Graco’s InvisiPac® Tank-Free™ Hot Melt System or independently with any other hot melt equipment. This cost-saving technology improves overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness by providing operators highly accurate material use data.

With the InvisiPac Pattern Control System, users can easily view material use data on the pattern controller screen. By tracking the amount of material used per box, operators can visualize cost savings. Additionally, a sudden change in material usage can alert operators to a larger issue with the system, saving the waste and rework of improperly sealed boxes and improving uptime.

“The accurate data reporting of the InvisiPac Pattern Control System also provides system performance insight to operators, predicting maintenance needs and reducing overall material usage,” said Corey Johnson, Global Product Manager, Applied Fluid Technologies Division at Graco. “We’ve designed this pattern controller with the backing of our extensive fluid handling expertise, and so it provides users with truly useful, accurate information, not just raw data.”

The InvisiPac Pattern Control System allows users to easily convert from a solid adhesive bead to a stitched bead. Stitching can be turned on or off with the push of a button, and operators can easily stitch individual beads or the entire pattern. The result can be dramatic adhesive savings without any sacrifice in product quality.  And, when using InvisiPac Hot Melt Systems, the savings can be automatically quantified and documented.

Featuring an easy to use, highly intuitive color LCD interface, the InvisiPac Pattern Control System provides an on-screen pattern preview that eliminates the guesswork in setting up adhesive bead locations. The Pattern Control System can be ordered as part of an integrated HM25 or HM50 InvisiPac system, or installed externally to work with most hot melt systems.
