COMPACT ELECTRIC GUNS
Nordson Corporation today introduced its next generation of compact electric hot melt adhesive guns. e.dot+ electric guns offer an outstanding combination of highly accurate dot or bead placement, easy installation and quiet operation, while requiring minimal space for installation and service. e.dot+ guns are ideal for high-speed dotting applications, such as cigarette tax stamps and couponing, chocolate wrapping and small carton flap sealing. e.dot+ guns operate in combination with a specially designed small diameter hose and an external gun driver, allowing for direct “plug and play”connections between the adhesive melter, gun, driver and hose. Nordson e.dot+ guns have on-times as low as 0.4 ms, cycle rates as fast as 1.8 ms, and a service life in excess of 200 million cycles. The guns’ ball and nozzle/seat design provides users with excellent repeatability, pattern control and consistency, delivering superior dot patterns and minimizing adhesive stringing or tailing. The e.dot+ gun also features a removable armature and seat and a number of interchangeable nozzles, allowing for quick and easy maintenance. In addition, manual stroke adjustment allows for re-zeroing of the module after servicing, and the e.dot+ module coil connector facilitates fast module exchange.
