The new FillEasy II adhesive-feed system is recommended for production environments requiring a simple, dependable and economical filling system, the co. says. The updated feeder utilizes a cone with an integrated capacitance sensor mounted to the adhesive melter tank lid for highly accurate tank readings. The sensor detects low adhesive levels and transmits a signal to a suction lance. Using vacuum, the system then conveys adhesive in the shape of pellets, pastilles or mini-slats from the supplied adhesive storage container to the melter tank. Adding small quantities of adhesive at regular intervals prevents the sealed tank from running dry and reduces adhesive char, contaminants and incorrect adhesive temperatures that result in poor bonding, the co. says. The feed system's design minimizes installation and maintenance requirements, while automatic sensor calibration allows operators to complete setup quickly and easily.
