Choosing the Right Hot Melt System for Product Assembly

Advances in hot melt adhesives and their application systems have done wonders for product assembly. It’s easier than ever to use hot melt adhesives on the assembly line in a way that speeds up production and saves money. Of course, it’s important to have the right system in place, one that will fit your product assembly needs.

At Sure Tack Systems, we have a variety of application systems available, regardless of whether you prefer automated or manual application. You just have to figure out what system is the best fit for your assembly line. Here is a closer look at our hot melt adhesive systems to help you choose the right one.

Extrusion Applicators

Extrusion systems are typically used when the amount of adhesive needed is small but needs to be precise. This type of system is also better than other methods for applying adhesive into a narrow space. The extrusion applicators that Sure Tack Systems offers are among the best at cut-offs and eliminating trailing. Whether it’s automated or manual, extrusion systems are useful for packaging, woodworking, case sealing, and other types of product assembly.

Spray Applicators

Spray systems are most adept at applying hot melt adhesive over a larger area. With the advances in spray systems, large amounts of adhesive can be applied in a short period of time, which tends to speed things up on the assembly line. While spray systems won’t work with smaller products, they are ideal for furniture assembly, foam packaging, garage doors, and other products of similar size.

Slot Coating Applicators

Slot coating systems are automated and can be configured to handle a variety of speeds and patterns when applying hot melt adhesive. At Sure Tack Systems, our slot coating systems can range in width from 1/8’’ to 12’’ while the amount of adhesive can be anywhere between one and 40 mils. Our systems can also handle high speed and complex patterns, making product assembly as fast and efficient as possible.

Custom Applicators

At Sure Tack Systems, we can also work with you to create a custom-designed system that will fit your exact needs. We also offer both standard and custom nozzles to match whatever pattern you need on the assembly line. Ultimately, we want our customers to have the right system in place so they can be as productive and efficient with their product assembly as possible.
