This company is offering a new color data sheet for its microprocessor-based ET9 Pattern Controller. Designed for compatibility with a variety of the company’s hot melt applicator systems, the controller regulates the precise deposition of an adhesive pattern as the adhesive is applied to a substrate moving along a production line. The controller electrically energizes valves to apply adhesive for a scheduled-event pattern, which is pre-programmable from the front panel. For greater versatility, the controller can be programmed to apply “stitched” patterns.
