Valco Melton's Akura M Hot Melt Coating Applicators have been developed to perform at the lowest grammages while guaranteeing a streak-free finish. By incorporating an independent stream gear pump on each module, adhesive waste during machine ramp up is minimized, and the cross-web adhesive distribution is completely homogeneous.
Nozzle options include rotating bar, continuous, and curtain coat
When not activated, modules automatically switch into recirculating mode to avoid adhesive degradation
Operating speeds up to 500 m/min
Depending on the nozzle and type of adhesive used, coating thickness varies from 5 to 200 gsm
