Three units will be on display at the ITW Dynatec exhibit, with technical representatives available to demonstrate the ASU’s unique features. In addition to ASUs, ITW Dynatec is well known to the packaging industry for its wide range of adhesive application equipment, which includes filling systems, applicators, nozzles, heated hoses and pattern controllers.
“The name ‘SIMPLICITY™’ effectively sums up everything this new ASU represents,” explains Danette Reliford, Strategic Marketing Director for ITW Dynatec. “The system is simple to install, simple to operate, and simple to maintain. This latest evolution in design, performance and operation is in direct response to comments and input we have received from our customers.”
The SIMPLICITY™ design incorporates broad compatibility, enabling users to easily integrate the unit into current manufacturing operations. The ASU employs a single board with simplified V6 controls and a clear easy-to-read display, eliminating the need for extensive training. A relatively compact unit, SIMPLICITY™ features patented Melt-On-Demand™ technology, melting only the required amount of adhesive which greatly reduces char, resulting in less nozzle clogging and reduced maintenance.
First introduced by ITW Dynatec in the 1960s, the company continues to evolve and integrate Melt-On-Demand technology through the introduction of solutions like SIMPLICITY™. With Melt-On-Demand, charring and clogging are minimized as the technology only melts and delivers the precise amount of adhesive needed for the application. This enables the system to reach operation-ready status much faster than with other conventional equipment, lower energy consumption, and minimize adhesive degradation.
ITW Dynatec’s new SIMPLICITY™ ASU is available as 4kg, 8kg and 16kg units with melt rates as high as 25 lbs. per hour, while the larger 16kg units can melt up to 50 lbs. per hour. The SIMPLICITY™ can accommodate two, four or six hose configurations for a simple customizable setup. Additionally, the 16kg size is also available as a dual pump base unit.
