Granulate Container

Touch protection ConnectorCover

With the touch protection ConnectorCover, the Robatech hot melt application systems are fully insulated – from melting device to applicator head

Robatech has expanded its automatic filling system Roba Feed with the Granulate Container for clean storage and problem-free delivery of hot melt adhesive in granular form. The white Granulate Container protects the adhesive from environmental influences that could resulting ranulate contamination or clumping, and from damaging UV radiation.

During delivery, the funnel shape of the Granulate Container ensures granulate inflow. The intake lance is continuously supplied with granulate and thus ensures problem-free delivery of hot melt adhesive. A jumper variant is available for very sticky granulate at high ambient temperatures. A pneumatic lifting plate installed in the floor of the Granulate Container rises and lowers abruptly. The granulate is loosened and clumping is avoided.

With the touch protection Connector Cover, the Robatech hot melt application systems are fully insulated – from melting device to applicator head. This increases operator safety and reduces heat radiation at the joints. The Connector Cover is a part of the Green Line family and features heat-resistant Cool Touch insulation, which significantly increases operational safety and ensures a sustainable and resource friendly production.

The Connector Cover covers the heated hose bolting connections and fulfils two important functions. On the one hand, it protects the operator against burns on contact with the heated hose. Moreover, it reduces the heat loss at the joints to melting device and applicator heads. To cover all installation situations, the Connector Cover is available  in different design versions.

Due to the touch protection Connector Cover, the complete system – from melting device to applicator head – is now Cool Touch-insulated. Operator protection was increased yet again and heat emission reduced. This significantly reduces the risk of burns, the adhesive is processed more gently, and energy is saved.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
