Fisnar Inc. has released a new range of Thermadose hot melt production equipment. The improvements include pulse-free temperature-controlled thermoplastic dispensing for industrial applications using pressure-sensitive adhesives, contact adhesives, waxes and sealants.
Fisnar said hot melt systems are suitable for direct-contact, non-woven, ribbon-coating, high-speed jetting and product assembly operations. Tank controllers include independent over-temperature and over-pressure protection for safe operation. Independently controlled heat zones minimize adhesive degradation for precise, uniform patterns.
Thermadose Reservoir tanks are coated with inert Teflon heated by quick-change cartridges for easy maintenance. Fisnar said control settings are input using a touch-pad that provides simple, fast setup. LED indicators monitor operation status and functions.
Pail and Drum melters handle high volume production requirements of hot melt EVA, PSA and PUR, supplied from five-gallon pails or 55 gallon drums. Melters include precision gear-pump technology that provide pulse-free flow of adhesive for precise gluing applications.
