Company says OptiBond solutions utilize variation management to optimize material delivery and dispensing. Implementing variation management programs helps disposable hygiene product manufacturers improve production efficiency, decrease maintenance, and enhance product quality.
VersaBlue Plus melters introduce optional melter-integrated flow monitoring and closed-loop flow control for up to four channels to the existing full-feature set of VersaBlue melters have delivered for more than a decade.
Integrated closed-loop control measures the material flow rate continuously and compares that to the application’s flow requirement; the output of the melter pump is automatically adjusted in real-time to minimize the difference between the requirement and actual flow rates. Integrating flow control is said to simplify installation and “extra” necessary equipment as well as provide ease of use through the melter’s touch screen interfaces. Company says the melter’s intuitive, easy-to-use graphical touch display simplifies set-up and operation and provides system status for the various melter functions. Basic graphing and data reporting of the flow control are also available on the melter display, or more detailed information can be exported to a laptop or via field bus.
