Nordson Expands Nonwovens Capabilities

March 30, 2006

The new CTL 4640 coater from Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq – NDSN) enhances the company’s global laboratory capabilities to help customers accurately qualify nonwovens and web coating applications, hot melt adhesives and substrates in a controlled environment.  The CTL 4640 coater handles diverse customer demonstration and development trials at Nordson facilities in Dawsonville, GA and Lüneburg, Germany.
    The coater provides coating and laminating on a variety of substrates or their combinations, including nonwovens, films, foams, fabrics, tapes, labels and elastics. Operating at line speeds up to 600 meters per minute with a maximum coating width of 350 millimeters, the coater features modular back plates and rollers that reposition to accommodate different substrates and web-path routing requirements.

A graphical user interface replicates production conditions, and an advanced tension control system provides ramp-up and ramp-down throughout the full line speed range without negatively affecting substrates.
