With more than 65 years of experience in the tissue industry, Valco Melton offers a variety of adhesive application systems for tissue converting and tissue machines. Valco Melton’s solutions include transfer and pick-up, tail sealing, core winding, full sheet turn-up systems, perfume dispensing and box sealing.
With over 700 machines in service worldwide, Valco Melton’s Corewinding systems for spiral wound cores and tubes feature an enclosed extrusion system that replaces open glue pots reducing adhesive waste and contamination. Available for single and multi-ply core applications, the Corewinding system reduces glue usage up to 30% for 2-ply systems and up to 80% for 1-ply systems. This system also eliminates “glue slinging” at high production rates.
Tail tie bead and spray valves ensure consistent adhesive application creating an appropriate bond to the roll without bleeding. With precise volume control, converters no longer have to worry about too much adhesive soaking through to multiple sheets in the roll.
Tissue and towel converters constantly deal with pick-up or transfer issues relating to proper adhesive application. Too much adhesive or not enough are common problems faced daily by operators. The enclosed application system from Valco Melton eliminates adhesive contamination while applying consistent glue patterns at all speeds. Valco Melton extrusion systems offer increased uptime and eliminate quality issues commonly experienced with open systems, allowing operators to focus on other parts of the converting process.
Full sheet transfer is a delicate and tricky part of the tissue roll manufacturing process due to the increasing speeds of the machine, also due to the increasing speeds of tissue machines. Valco Melton’s Tissue Tack and Reel System offer a high-speed turn-up sheet process that improves the machine efficiency and increase output by at least 3% per year. Return of investment for Tissue Tack and Reel can be achieved in as little as three months.
Perfume has traditionally been used on tissue rolls to mask the odor of adhesives and raw materials. But these sprayed liquids release particles in the air, causing unnecessary perfume waste and causing a potential health hazard. Valco Melton has engineered a perfume solution that applies precise perfume dots on each and every roll core, keeping the air free from atomized substances. Perfume drop application brings up to 60% in perfume savings, with ROI’s as low as 3 months being frequently achieved.
Valco Melton offers gluing systems for tissue rolls final-packaging. EcoStitch™ all-electric hot melt applicators provide better efficiency in bonding when compared to pneumatic systems. By applying glue dots instead of beads, EcoStitch solution allows up to 70% glue savings and an instant ROI in less than three months in some cases. All-electric technology allows applicators to work at the highest speeds with a lifespan of 500+ million cycles. An efficient packaging process for tissue rolls can considerably reduce production downtime and the final product cost.
Valco Melton presents its wide range of gluing solutions for the Tissue Industry at MIAC Exhibition in Lucca / Italy (stand 42).
