UK • Universal Converting Equipment have supplied a new CL350 hot melt adhesive coater / laminator to its sister company, Universal Adhesive Systems. The machine is available for customer trials at Universal Adhesive Systems, Daventry facility.
According to Universal Converting Equipment, the coater has been built with a focus on flexibility. Despite the small footprint of the Universal CL350 is capable of multiple coating types, including slot die proximity coating, CrossCoat curtain coating, high speed intermittent coating, spiral coating, spray coating and Dynafiber coating. Adjustments on the coating station are made via a touchscreen and actioned by precision motors. The constant gap winding system ensures the best quality finished rolls are produced.
Furthermore, Universal Converting Equipment argues that in addition to the different coating types customers can try on the CL350, the machine can operate at production speeds, so by running coating trials at the test facility in Daventry customers can prove hot melt applications will work in live production environment.
