Henkel Loctite Offers Bulk Hot Melt Transfer Equipment
Rocky Hill, Conn. -- February 11, 2003... For large, flat surfaces where a continuous film of adhesive must be applied, Henkel Loctite offers a bulk hot melt adhesive transfer machine, the Loctite® Hysol® Wheelcoater, ideal for application of most EVA products.
The Hysol Wheelcoater features an adhesive reservoir, three heaters, and a transfer roller driven by a variable speed electric motor. The transfer surface on the roller is knurled to hold a large volume of adhesive, and adjustable blades control the thickness of the adhesive film applied. The system will apply a band of hot melt adhesive up to six inches wide and provides maximum productivity when covering large surfaces. Roller surface speed ranges from 10 to 40 feet per minute. Typical applications include protective foam inserts for cardboard boxes and other packaging materials.
Adhesive is applied by passing the surface of a part over a rotating roller, which transfers the adhesive onto the part. With each rotation, the roller is automatically recoated for continuous use. The variable speed electric motor will not rotate until the adhesive is at the appropriate application temperature. The Wheelcoater's three-heater design offers efficient and consistent heating. A temperature control switch and thermometer accommodate application temperatures for a variety of hot melt products.
