HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — March 22, 2016 — ITW Dynatec, a global supplier of hot melt equipment and solutions, has been recognized as an IDEA16 Achievement Awards finalist for its Ultra™ Strand Coating System (SCS) in the equipment category. Presented by Association of Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), IDEA International Event Conference and Exposition is held every three years. Being named a finalist this year marks the third consecutive time that ITW Dynatec has been recognized by the INDA. The company won “Most Innovative Technology” in both 2010 and 2013, making them the first company ever to receive back-to-back awards in the equipment category.
Developed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling, ITW Dynatec’s Ultra SCS is specifically designed to support the disposable hygiene market. This patent-pending device brings the highest level of efficiency to adhesive coating on elastic strands, yielding superior results in terms of end product performance. Key features of the Ultra SCS include: next level high-speed technology (up to 1,400 pads per minute); Rapid Change-Over (RCO) design for quicker maintenance; Ultra-stitch and Ultra-touch nozzle designs to meet multiple requirements; Integrated hardened steel elastic strand guides for extended lifespan; Larger adhesive orifices for less plugging and higher line efficiency; optimized “ultra-apex” module technology for faster response and longer cycle life; and the lowest usage of adhesive available with total creep strength down to 1% (even as low as 15 grams/linear meter/strand).
“We’re grateful to INDA for once again recognizing our company,” says Dave Folmer, Global Director of Innovation and R & D at ITW Dynatec. “Being honored as an Achievement Awards finalist is the culmination of dedication and hard work by many skilled and talented people in our organization, with a shared passion to continually advance bonding and sealing technologies to better serve our global customer base. We are all delighted to be acknowledged as part of the awards program at IDEA16.”
ITW Dynatec will be an exhibitor at IDEA16, booth #1209, Boston Convention Exhibition Center, May 2-6, where it will present its latest bonding and sealing solutions for the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industry.
