Valco Melton India, a subsidiary of US-based Valco Cincinnati Inc, is a supplier of adhesive application and quality assurance equipment across the packaging, paper converting, graphic arts and non-woven industries. The company is promoting and demonstrating its recently launched Eco Stitch all electric hot melt system at Intelpack 2019, which is taking place in Mumbai from 26-28 September.
“We have got very good response from customers when it comes to Eco Stich. We have been very successful in converting standard gluing systems to Eco Stitch system at multiple customers’ end. We have installed 25 systems since the launch and are in talks with many other potential customers,” says Ravi Kiran, director at Valco Melton India.
The Eco Stitch is ideal for applications requiring high line speeds, fast cycle rates, and long service life. Electric valves can be set to work on stitch mode to apply minimal adhesive beads with virtually no stringing to guarantee an extremely accurate application, even at the highest line speeds. It is primarily used at the end of the line packaging applications.
“At Intelpack we have showed the visitors those kinds of applications that can be performed by the Eco Stich. This system has very few moving parts and therefore its life is very long; almost 2 billion cycles. It saves adhesive by almost 70%. We have got good response,” Kiran adds.
In addition to the Eco Stich, Valco Melton India is also displaying its ERO gluing system for folding carton application, a manual gun hot melt gluing system, controllers and various types of pumps.
