Nordson makes dispense applicator for hygiene products
Nordson Corporation, that makes precision technology solutions that help customers succeed worldwide, has recently produced and posted online a video demonstrating the capabilities and benefits of the patented Trio variable dispense applicators, used in hygiene products.
A triple-shim nozzle coupled with a multi-hydraulic, zoned manifold and application-specific dispensing modules, produce patterns with different add-on weights in both machine and cross-web directions from a single applicator. The capability meets the trending variable add-on adhesive patterns in nonwovens applications, such as disposable hygiene product construction, to reduce material costs, and improve product performance, Nordson informed in a press release.
The ability to apply different add-on rates means a disposable hygiene product can more cost- and production-efficiently meet varying functional and sensory performance needs. And, this higher-quality, higher-performing product saves the material by optimizing add-on rates for each of the various pattern positions.
The Trio applicator is capable of applying varying add-on rates, multiple materials simultaneously, and coating-on-coating. Trio applicators use a slot nozzle with three shims that create paths for materials, such as hot melt adhesives, to be applied to substrates. Patterns are created by cycling high-speed, long-life speed-coat modules to precisely place adhesive in even demanding intermittent applications.
Nordson Corporation engineers, manufactures, and markets differentiated products and systems used for precision dispensing of adhesives, coatings, biomaterials, fluids, etc. (GK)
