Melt Units & Parts

The AstroPack is Back! From PackExpo 2019!

Reliable Packaging Systems’ adhesive & equipment team had recently made the not-so-perilous trek out to the deserts of Nevada for 2019’s inimitable Pack Expo. And what a wonderful experience it was, not only because this year’s series of events had been so much closer to us than Chicago’s biennial take on the same exhibition, but because Pack Expo—Vegas is the oh-so rare(r) chance for us to catch up with some of our all-time favorite faces, friends, frenemies, foils, etc.

Some of the standout experiences on the expo floor were courtesy of Graco® Inc., Packsize®,

Nozzle Plugging & Inconsistent Bead Placement?

Hot melt nozzles are the last piece of equipment adhesive contacts when dispensing to production lines. Because of this, hot melt nozzles can have a big impact on the performance of your glue patterns. Astro Packaging manufacturing standards provide the highest tolerances to guarantee consistent bead placement and performance for customer applications. Inferior nozzles can cause many production issues such as higher adhesive usage, plugged nozzles, and incorrect bead placement.

Estimating Hot Melt Coverage

There are many factors that are important when buying hot melt besides what’s in the formulas. Astro Packaging understands how hard it can be to determine the cost and coverage of hot melt. We want to guide you and make your life just a little easier by showing you some simple equations for finding your hot melt coverage and cost.

Hot Melt Adhesive VS Tape

There has been a long debate between packaging application categories of tape and hot melt adhesives. The debate still continues and both products offer benefits over the other, but depending on application, hot melt adhesives are usually the best option for most customers.
