The H.B. Fuller Liquamelt adhesive system bulk feed option eliminates the need for on-floor staff to refill the adhesive reservoir; it allows containers to be located remotely and for the adhesive to be safely transferred from the sealed containers to the packaging machines through common, non-heated fluid hoses.
Garlock THERMa-PUR ultra-high-temperature sealing material comes in 40- x 40-in. sheets with an available fiber core in thicknesses of 1/16 and 1/8 in.; it is also available in pre-cut, Kammprofile and corrugated metal gaskets.
Designed for heat-seal applications, Rollprint Chameleon coextrusion-coated, color-changing sealant can be applied to any thermally stable web including polyester, nylon and polypropylene or onto any Rollprint ClearFoil barrier structures to enhance product security and help deter counterfeiting.
A fully automatic, recipe-driven hot melt applicator for roll-fed labeling, the B & H glue extrusion system produces void-free glue patterns while eliminating vacuum drum re-padding.
Automatically indexing random size cases from a powered infeed conveyor, the S&R SR4000T case sealer automatically folds all top flaps and applies up to 3-in. wide pressure-sensitive tape to the top and bottom of the case.
As more consumers snack more often, brand owners provide products in portable, single-serving packs to appeal to these grab-and-go consumers and the retail outlets they frequent.
