GlueFill – Granulate Container for Automatic Melter Filling
Granulate container GlueFill is an integral part of Robatech’s automatic filling system and is used in combination with granulate feeder RobaFeed 3. The filling system ensures safe and efficient melter filling with adhesive in granular form.
The GlueFill is responsible for granulate storage and delivery and is available in three sizes, allowing the refilling intervals to be reduced and efficiency to be increased depending on demand and application. Using the GlueFill model L and M, up to two melters can be filled at the same time. As large amounts of granulate tend to clump, a filling grid is available as an option for the GlueFill L. A vibrator plate is also available as an option. The current granulate filling level can be easily checked through a window on the front side of the container. To overcome longer distances from melter to GlueFill (> 10 m), a special distance amplifier for increased suction effect is available as an option for the transport hose.
Familiarize yourself with the detailed operating principle of automatic filling.
