ITW M Series
M Series Hot Melt Bulk adhesive Supply Unit
The DYNAMELT M70 and M140 adhesive supply units (ASU) are computer-controlled hot-melt supply units designed on metric standards. They utilize Allen Bradley SLC (small logic controller) 500 systems and they interface with Allen Bradley’s PanelView touch screen control panel.
The Dynamelt M Series ASUs are available in three cabinet sizes and offer four hopper sizes. Their microprocessor temperature control unit closely controls the temperature of hot-melt adhesive for up to 8 hoses and 8 heads. The operator selects temperature set points for up to 32 zones. The system automatically provides warnings and alarms for operator errors and system malfunctions.
The Dynamelt system provides accurate, proportionate temperature control for the hopper, hoses and applicators. Sequential heating delays may be programmed for turn-on of the hoses and heads. A “standby” temperature program maintains the temperature zones at a lower temperature when the ASU is not in active use thus enabling rapid return to normal operation. The seven-day scheduler allows programmable automatic startup and shutdown of the ASU throughout the workweek. With these flexible temperature program features, the Dynamelt system increases adhesive life by eliminating prolonged high adhesive temperatures. It reduces energy consumption and brings the system up to normal operating temperatures in the shortest possible time.
The SLC 500 maintains all temperature zone set points, alarms and motor parameters, as well as the scheduling parameters. The SLC’s processor (CPU) monitors the electronic circuitry and provides alarms for error conditions. A DeviceNet module provides communication to the ASU’s drives. The PanelView 600 touch screen color controller is the operator’s interface to the SLC 500 system. The temperature control can interlock the parent machine with pre-selected adhesive temperatures so that production automatically begins when adhesive temperatures are correct for the application. The temperature program allows the system temperature values to be set in a simple and timely manner.
The Dynamelt M ASU uses an extremely dependable gear pump(s) to assure a smoother and higher precision flow. The single or dual pumps are driven by individual drives.
The Dynamelt’s teflon-coated hopper accepts adhesive in all popular forms, including pellets, slugs and blocks. The ASU can accommodate air-actuated automatic applicators (heads), electric applicators, hand-held applicators and/or special applicators. Options available include pressure gauges, two drop-in grids, dual hopper, pneumatic clutches, digital pressure readout and adhesive level control.
The DM140 is also available in a high flow model.
