ITW Dynatec recently announced it will receive a finalist award at the IDEA16 Achievement Awards for its Ultra™ Strand Coating System (SCS) in the equipment category. The award will be presented by the Association of Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA) at the IDEA International Event Conference and Exposition, taking place May 2-6 in Boston, Mass.

Developed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling, Ultra SCS is designed to support the disposable hygiene market. This patent-pending device reportedly brings a high level of efficiency to adhesive coating on elastic strands. This award reportedly marks the third consecutive time that ITW Dynatec has been recognized by the INDA. The company won “Most Innovative Technology” in both 2010 and 2013, making them the first company ever to receive back-to-back awards in the equipment category.

“We’re grateful to INDA for once again recognizing our company,” said Dave Folmer, global director of innovation and research and development. “Being honored as an Achievement Awards finalist is the culmination of dedication and hard work by many skilled and talented people in our organization, with a shared passion to continually advance bonding and sealing technologies to better serve our global customer base.”
