GRACO: Hot-Melt Pattern Control System
The new InvisiPac® pattern control system is designed for use with this company’s InvisiPac Tank-Free™ hot-melt system or independently with any other hot-melt equipment. The technology can improve overall productivity by providing operators the flexibility to adapt quickly to changes in packaging operations.
With the pattern control system, users can reportedly convert from a solid adhesive bead to a stitched bead. Stitching can be turned on or off with the push of a button, and operators can easily stitch individual beads or the entire pattern. As a result, users can save adhesive without any sacrifice in product quality.
Featuring an easy-to-use, intuitive color LCD interface, the InvisiPac pattern control system provides an on-screen pattern preview that can eliminate the guesswork in setting up adhesive bead locations. Operators can see a comprehensive view of all pattern definitions on a single page. In addition, the system allows operators to copy, delete or name patterns, so changes can be made quickly to keep the line running.
