The ITW Dynatec SCS is a patent-pending strand applicator that is specifically designed for the disposable hygiene market. SCS technology brings the highest level of efficiency to the application of adhesive coatings on elastic strands for enhanced manufacturing line efficiency and superior end product performance. Ultra SCS key features include high-speed technology (up to 1,400 pads a minute); Rapid Change-Over (RCO) design for quicker maintenance; Ultra-stitch and Ultra-touch nozzle designs to meet multiple requirements; Integrated hardened steel elastic strand guides for extended lifespan; Larger adhesive orifices for less plugging and higher line efficiency; Optimized module technology for faster response and longer cycle life; and the lowest usage of adhesive available with total creep strength down to 1% (even as low as 15 grams/linear metre/strand).
ITW Dynatec’s Vector Surge Applicator, an advanced add-on technology to the company’s Vector Metered Platform, will be showcased at IDEA16. It extends the capability of the Vector Metered Platform by providing precise variable volume capability in all orientations. The surge process provides heavier adhesive application where needed, and lighter volumes elsewhere on the substrate for extensive raw material savings, reduced machine maintenance, and energy savings.
Also on display at IDEA16 will be the redesigned UFD Elite Series Nozzles. The nozzle design and applicator improve performance while reducing the frequency of maintenance and nozzle replacements. UFD premium, high-performance nozzle technology is ideally suited to DHP, C&L and product assembly applications. This new, simplified version of the patented UFD applicator nozzle features larger orifices and fewer, thicker plates.
