The new EcoStitch melter series is Valco Melton’s most intelligent, versatile, and technologically advanced adhesive melter with a host of Innovative features. The company’s new melters do not require compressed air and use precision gear pumps to deliver adhesive in a constant, reliable, and repeatable fashion. Valco Melton is active throughout India with its head office and plant in the country located in Bengaluru.
There are four pump size options on all EcoStitch melters to fit specific application requirements. Digital Closed Loop Pressure Control is one of the ‘industry firsts’ for food and beverage packaging glue melters – it is now possible to digitally monitor, adjust, and have built-in ‘key to line’ adhesive pressure control. Adhesive usage data is another innovative feature within the EcoStitch melters.
When equipped, all the EcoStitch units monitor and measure the amount of hot melt adhesive being pumped through the system. Using either a customer input trigger or an additional photo-eye, the EcoStitch melter not only calculates how much adhesive is used in a day, in an hour, or annually, it shows the average adhesive grams per product directly on the screen.
Ethernet IP communication is available on all EcoStitch melters that plug into your existing PLC and provide visibility accessibility through an existing HMI. With this integrated solution, users can now fully control their melting system, pumping system, and adjust pressure.
Other features of the EcoStitch melters include the rear facing manifold and universal base plate allowing installation onto almost any existing platform. The melters have eight possible hose/gun connections, giving one melter for any possible application requirement. The fully integrated auto-feed features a powerful Venturi that easily pulls all pellets, chips and slats under 5/8-inches square.
With a universal vacuum wand, the melter can use any adhesive tote and does not require users to purchase a special adhesive container to operate their vacuum system. Also available is a 7KVA transformer base that will fit any EcoStitch series melter and is designed to be mounted on the base of the melter for tight space requirements.
