CHICAGO, IL | Henkel supplier of adhesives used for package bonding and sealing, and Nordson Corp., a producer of precision dispensing equipment for adhesives and other materials, have established a global alliance on new technology development for the packaging market worldwide to provide significant benefits and deliver greater value to their customers.
This alliance integrates Nordson’s expertise in equipment engineering and dispensing technology with Henkel’s formulating ability and application knowledge to address the challenges facing packaging customers. To meet those challenges, the two companies will offer what are reported to be integrated, innovative solutions that aim to increase reliability and process efficiency, reducing costs and increasing customer profitability. The alliance will also focus on increasing sustainability and minimizing packagers’ impact on the environment.
The two companies are previewing one of the first offerings to result from their alliance, the new Freedom System, at Pack Expo in Chicago this week. The system combines Nordson’s Freedom Series Hot Melt Dispensing equipment with Henkel’s Technomelt Freedom-certified adhesives to help customers contain costs and simplify operations to increase productivity, reliability, and sustainability. This optimized combination of adhesive and equipment is in selected field tests now with a full commercial launch anticipated in the first quarter of 2013.
