Product provides control and flexibility for precise, demanding hot melt adhesive applications.

Designed to provide control and flexibility for precise, demanding hot melt adhesive applications, Nordson Corporation, Duluth, GA, has introduced AltaBlue touch series adhesive melters.

These high-precision, variable-speed melters use an intuitive, touch screen operator interface and simplified maintenance to maximize production uptime and product quality, the company says. AltaBlue touch melters deliver the performance requirements for nonwovens production as well as product assembly applications such as woodworking and filter.

The Optix user interface improves operator experience and minimizes training for set-up and operation, according to the company. System status is displayed on-screen with a remote-visual-system light tower option available. Control features include recipe development and storage, graphing and data logging.

Routine maintenance is simplified with single-tool, easy-access panels and doors, disposable basket-style filters, and accessible tank isolation valves.

AltaBlue touch melters offer production flexibility with advanced delivery control modes including: key-to-line control, pressure build and control, manual and flow control. Variable-speed AC motors and up to four dual stream or single-stream pumps help manufacturers meet specific delivery requirements.

The AltaBlue touch series also enables pressure and flow monitoring and control through optional control boards. This integrated solution can measure and control material delivery and dispense rates in response to production rate changes. Material consumption is reduced while production efficiency and product quality are improved with this variation management. For more information:
