Medical Tape Manufacturing
Valco Melton offers dipsensing systems for hot melt PSA’s and UV-Curable Acrylic hot melts for PSA’s, for the medical tape and self-adhesive dressing manufacturing.
When working with UV-Curable Acrylic hot melts for PSA’s, the higher viscosity requires higher melting rates. D-Drum Unloaders are ideally suited as a pre-melter, working in conjunction with SmartMelt Series Units as a buffer tank for thermal stabilization and adhesive dosing control.
To guarantee the required precision in the adhesive distribution tolerance, Akura M applicators feature an automatic grammage adjustment systems across the full coating width, and can be connected in closed-loop with the in-line grammage measurement system.
Additionally, they can work in non-contact applications. By not placing the die directly in contact with the surface, Akura M Applicators achieve an homogeneous coating even on breathable, heat-sensitive and/ or substrates with an uneven or irregular surface
