Premier Dies Coating Station

Nordson EDI’s Premier Dies™ Coating Station Is Self-Contained System; Nordson Corporation’s TCHP TrueCoat® Slot Applicator Has Slot Nozzle and Rotating Bar Options

CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI, U.S.A., January 22, 2013: In a joint exhibit at ICE USA, Nordson Corporation and its recently acquired Nordson EDI business will highlight the versatility of two slot coating systems, Nordson announced today. The company will exhibit at Booth 105, which will also feature another recent Nordson acquisition, Nordson XALOY.

Nordson EDI will present the Premier Dies™ Coating Station, a self-contained slot die system that combines robust construction, versatility, and consistent accuracy.

Custom-built to accommodate a wide range of die sizes, the Premier Dies coating station includes flexible- or fixed-lip coating head, die support, fluid delivery unit, and coating rolls. Precision engineering and heavy-duty stainless steel construction contribute to the high degree of accuracy and repeatability achieved by the coating station. As an example of the system’s repeatability, Nordson EDI points out that the positioning of the die relative to the coating roll is held within a range of only 2.5 microns.

Nordson EDI can build the coating station for installation in either new or existing coating lines. A modular version of the station can be moved on- and off-line, providing versatility and helping to reduce downtime for die maintenance or job changes. The movable station can be used to alternate between slot die and conventional roll coating or for switching among several coating stations, each with a different slot die.

The Premier Dies coating station is designed to accommodate supported-web and unsupported-web configurations. Four axes of die adjustment are available. Coating rolls may be either stainless steel or chrome-plated. The station can include a built-in vacuum box to help control the coating bead.

Nordson Corporation’s TCHP TrueCoat® slot applicator provides exceptional accuracy for stripe or full coating application in continuous web processes. Streak-free coverage and excellent edge control make the TCHP particularly beneficial for tape and label applications. The compact, configurable design is ideal for coating a wide variety of substrates including papers, foils, films, and nonwovens.

The TCHP TrueCoat applicator is simple to use. A V-shaped body design provides flexible setup of web routing and guidance. Fast pattern changes are achieved with quick-change, replaceable slot nozzles. The flexibility and functionality of the TCHP slot applicator is expanded with capability to quickly, easily change between traditional slot nozzle and rotating bar nozzle technologies.

TrueCoat slot applicators are easy to maintain, featuring quick-change filters and modules as well as flange-on solenoids. A new nozzle clamping design provides quick removal of dies for servicing. Optional anti-stick surface coating eases cleaning.
