Nordson’s Variable Dispense Applicator Meets Add-on Adhesive Pattern in Non-woven Applications

Published on 2015-03-19. Author : SpecialChem

Duluth, Georgia, USA -- Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN) has recently produced patented Trio™ variable dispense applicators. 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. This 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.

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.

The ability to apply different add-on rates means a disposable hygiene product can more cost- and production-efficiently meet varying functional (e.g., bond strength) and sensory (e.g., hand) performance needs. And, this higher-quality, higher-performing product saves material by optimizing add-on rates for each of the various pattern positions.

The Trio applicator can apply:
• Varying add-on rates
• Multiple materials simultaneously
• Coating-on-coating
