Extrusion Dies Industries LLC (EDI) and ITW Dynatec recently reached a worldwide agreement to market turnkey hot-melt adhesive coating stations by combining ITW Dynatec’s melting and fluid delivery equipment with EDI’s slot die systems.
The agreement makes available to operators of coating and laminating processes a single, fully integrated system whose performance is guaranteed by the partner companies. The system can be designed to apply virtually any hot-melt material over the range of viscosities and at temperatures from ambient to 500°F (260°C). Depending on equipment parameters and the type of application, the system can coat at speeds exceeding 2,000 feet (610 m) per minute on wide widths, and in coat weights down to 0.5 mil (0.013 mm) or less. Coat weight accuracy can be maintained within +/-1%.

“The turnkey hot-melt coating station is more accurate than other slot die or roll coating systems, making possible raw material savings that are especially valuable in these challenging times,” said Mike Budai, ITW Dynatec’s laminating and coating manager.  

  The joint turnkey coating station program builds on the versatility of the partners. ITW Dynatec is a longtime leading supplier of adhesive application systems and supplies equipment to every industry that employs hot-melt adhesives. EDI’s engineering expertise enables the company to custom manufacture each slot die coating system in accordance with application requirements.
