Nordson at interpack 2008

Nordson Introduced new application technologies and product solutions at Interpack 2008.

First of the Nordson`s noveltie is a new high-speed electric gun for precision adhesive applications . This compact, high-speed hot melt adhesive gun is designed for use in demanding high-end gluing applications requiring small dots or beads of adhesive. The gun applies adhesive patterns with virtually no stringing or tailing. Nordson will also display its pneumatic adhesive dispensing gun series.

The another system which the company showed ay interpack is a new, non-contact labeling system with guns for roll-fed labeling applications. This innovative system maximizes production efficiency by providing better process control, lowering maintenance requirements and drastically reducing downtime. Designed to replace open wheel-pot systems, Nordson`s closed system reduces downtime by eliminating the extensive drum pad and machine cleaning required with traditional wheel-pot systems. The non-contact system also allows for better adhesive distribution across the label, which improves aesthetics and provides more consistent bonding.

ProBlue adhesive melters, simple and compact in design and constructed to maximize uptime and reduce operating costs has been also introduced at the world biggest packaging trade fair. These rugged, flexible melters are available in several different versions, including an eight-hose expansion base and a transformer option for high-voltage installations. New for 2008, the ProBlue Fulfill integrated melter and adhesive feed system automatically maintains desired adhesive levels in the melter tank to increase uptime, reduce clogged adhesive nozzles and eliminate manual filling.

The fourth application worth to be mentioned is Nordson aftermarket parts and Power of Choice service programs designed to minimize downtime. New service plans, such as the Partnership+Plus program and the Nordson Protection Package, deliver unmatched equipment flexibility and support from specialists who provide consultation to maximize equipment performance. Genuine Nordson hot melt replacement parts protect investments in equipment and enhance productivity. Saturn series nozzles, filters and solenoid valves with color-coded rings simplify troubleshooting and replacement.
