Nordson Corp., a Westlake, Ohio-based
dispensing equipment manufacturer, has installed new CTL 4640 coaters in its laboratories in
Dawsonville, Ga., and Germany. The new coaters, which can be used to coat or laminate a range of
substrates and composites, expand Nordson’s lab capabilities to enable its customers to conduct
controlled trials for nonwovens and web-coating applications, substrates and hot-melt adhesives.
The CTL 4640 runs at line speeds of up to 600 meters per minute and offers coating widths of
up to 350 millimeters. Features include: modular back plates and rollers that may be adjusted
according to substrate and web-path routing specifications; a graphical user interface that
replicates manufacturing conditions; and a state-of-the-art tension control system that allows
adjustment at any speed.
The coater is compatible with a number of Nordson’s contact and non-contact hot-melt
adhesive dispensing technologies including Speed-Coat® high-speed intermittent slot applicator;
EP51 slot applicator; and Universal™ applicators equipped with CF®, Control Coat®, Summit™,
SureWrap™, meltblown spray or bead nozzles.
The coater installed in Germany also includes contact BC40, EP series, Porous Coat® and
TrueCoat™ slot applicators; a non-contact curtain coat slot applicator; and a QuadCure™ system for
ultraviolet-curable hot-melt adhesives.
