"We are pleased that the German district court has recognized the value of our intellectual property relating to dispensing hot melt adhesive onto a strand of elastic," says Christof Schotten, vice president and general manager worldwide of ITW Dynatec.
The technology in question, used by the ITW Dynatec Omega SCS strand coating system, can be important in the manufacture of baby diapers and adult incontinence products. ITW was seeking clarification of whether the use of the Nordson Sure Wrap product infringes its intellectual property. ITW owns patents on the technology in several countries.
The German court decision is not final and can be appealed by Nordson.
