Adhesive System Ends Jam
The makers of Penta, Bio-Hydration Research Lab Inc., Carlsbad, Calif., turned to Nordson to solve a manufacturing problem. The company’s existing wheel pot label adhesive system used excess glue that resulted in labels peeling off bottles and jamming the magazine. Adhesive issues also caused Bio-Hydration to change its clear label, meant to emphasize the product’s purity, to purple to cover the excess adhesive stringing on the bottle. In addition, the company faced efficiency issues, inconsistent adhesive temperature and volume as well as constant maintenance and downtime issues with the wheel pot system.
