DYNACONTROL V6 MODULAR CONTROL PLATFORM
DynaControl® V6 is Dynatec’s next generation Modular Control Platform, delivering greater productivity and reducing waste, while lowering total cost of ownership by as much as 50%. The new DynaControl V6 is fully compatible with DynaControl V5, making it easy to migrate, and the new software offers a variety of options to optimize productivity. The DynaControl V6 platform features simplified operator training and maintenance, and uses the same spare parts as all other Dynatec units.
A highly flexible system, DynaControl® V6 provides multi-system control through a single central HMI with remote access capabilities for seamless integration. Its advanced ramp compensation results in more accurate glue dispensing with little to no scrap production while significantly reducing product waste as much as 95 percent.
ULTRA™ LINK HIGH PERFORMANCE APPLICATOR PLATFORM
The new Ultra™ Linkplatform is the latest in a series of hot melt adhesive and fluid applicators from ITW Dynatec and is designed to provide the highest level of pattern accuracy. The new Ultra technology provides common parts, including modules, filters, heaters and many other parts for all applications common to baby diapers, feminine pads and adult incontinence lines. Ultra Link platform applicators include:
Ultra SCS: A modular hot melt applicator platform, designed for precise adhesive deposition at highest line speeds, it can be fitted with UltraTM Stitch and UltraTM Touch nozzle designs to meet multiple requirements. It offers larger adhesive orifices for less plugging and higher line efficiency and features optimized module technology for faster response and longer cycle life. This new technology also will provide 20 percent to 40 percent adhesive savings versus other individual strand coating applicators.
Ultra Slot: Capable of running at higher line speeds (up to 700 MPM), it is designed to minimize maintenance time and reduce the number of spare parts required. It is available with either a front quick- mount solenoid or top surface mount solenoid and has built in Rapid Change Over die mounting for fast pattern conversion.
Ultra Spray: A versatile high performing hot melt applicator technology, it offers two nozzle options: High Speed UFD™ – featuring larger orifices and a more robust nozzle that delivers reduced plugging and better pattern consistency; and Ultra HSI – a patent-pending nozzle that provides the most precise start/stop and side edge definition available in the market.
VELOCITY™ METERED APPLICATOR PLATFORM
The new Velocity metered applicator platform features a smaller, simplified footprint with a design that is based on Dynatec’s patented, award-winning Vector metered applicator technology. This advanced solution features precision adhesive control to individual modules, providing end users with products of the highest quality. It is the only system in the market that offers Ultra Link advantages combined with metered technology.
Users now have the ability to employ a metered applicator at the point of application and track adhesive consumption while minimizing adhesive usage in sections of the pads when compared to other technologies.
VelocityTM metered applicators include Velocity SCS, Velocity Slot and Velocity Spray. They are designed up to a 300mm width and have a 12-pump capacity. The Velocity SCS can also be fitted with either Ultra Stitch or Ultra Touch nozzles, while the Velocity Spray applicator utilizes the High Speed UFD or Ultra HSI nozzles.
Among the many other features of the Velocity metered applicator platform are easy replacement of pumps for changing product types, an expanded pump RPM range for fewer stocked pumps, and standard and precision pump options to meet tiered accuracy demands.
