Existing pipe applicators for film-to-paper application are messy and difficult to control. When the machine stops, adhesive can leak, resulting in web breaks and faulty product. Valco Melton’s extrusion lamination system solves this issue by applying precise beads of adhesive independent of machine speed. Valves shut off the adhesive as the machine stops, eliminating drips. These improvements allow for less waste, less downtime, and reduced glue usage, providing a quick payback on investment.
