Existing pipe applicators for film-to-paper application are messy and difficult to control. When the machine stops, adhesive can leak, causing web breaks and bad product. Valco Melton’s extrusion lamination system applies precise beads of adhesive, independent of machine speed. Valves shutoff the adhesive as the machine stops, eliminating drips. Less waste, less downtime and reduced glue usage offers a quick payback on investment.
