Graco Inc. offers its InvisiPac Pattern Control System, designed for use with Graco’s InvisiPac Tank-Free Hot Melt System or independently with any other hot melt equipment. This cost-saving technology improves overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness by providing operators highly accurate material use data.
With the system, users can easily view material use data on the pattern controller screen. By tracking the amount of material used per box, operators can visualize cost savings. Additionally, a sudden change in material usage can alert operators to a larger issue with the system, saving the waste and rework of improperly sealed boxes and improving uptime.
The system allows users to easily convert from a solid adhesive bead to a stitched bead. Stitching can be turned on or off with the push of a button, and operators can easily stitch individual beads or the entire pattern. The result can be dramatic adhesive savings without any sacrifice in product quality.
Featuring an easy to use, highly intuitive color LCD interface, the system provides an on-screen pattern preview that eliminates the guesswork in setting up adhesive bead locations. It can be ordered as part of an integrated HM25 or HM50 InvisiPac system, or installed externally to work with most hot melt systems.
