Baumer hhs’ gluing equipment gives the packaging industry a variety of unique options for minimising glue and energy consumption, but also the associated CO2 emissions, helping companies in this sector improve the environmental footprint of their processes and products.
The company is introducing the dot box kit, a turnkey system that includes two tesla go hot melt application heads, one dot box controller and all the required mounts and cables. The company will demonstrate live how packaging manufacturers can integrate its innovative equipment in their gluing processes in just a few steps and start producing all their packaging with dot application.
Xfeed turns connected hot melt units into melt-on-demand systems. Compatible with equipment from multiple manufacturers, the closed system automatically supplies adhesive granules on-demand to up to 20 hot melt units from a central storage location, bridging incomparably long distances of up to 200 metres at high feed rates. This maximises the availability of packaging lines and guarantees continuous production.
In addition, a central supply of adhesive ensures a clean work area and perfect adhesive quality at all times, because it keeps the fill level in the melters at optimum level. No charring occurs and the viscosity of the adhesives remains constant. The technical data provided by the energy-efficient equipment can be used to analyse the process and optimise glue consumption, in line with Industry 4.0 standards. Xfeed also significantly enhances ease-of-operation and occupational safety for machine operators.
The company’s related theme for FachPack 2021 (28 – 30 September in Nuremberg), where they will showcase these solutions, is ‘Sustainable Solutions for Packaging Production’.
