Robatech manufactures a comprehensive range of high-performance coating heads for applying thin films of thermoplastic adhesives and PUR hot melts.

We offer the optimum solution for a variety of adhesives, processes and production speeds in the printing, paper processing, consumer products and wood processing industries. Our integratable coating heads are a result of many years of experience in adhesive application technology. We combine this with a strong, fully adjustable mounting bracket for exact nozzle alignment.

  • Diameter: 0.5 mm to 2.6 mm
  • Continuous or intermittent surface coating
  • Maximum productivity with low life–cycle costs
  • Full modularity and compatibility with interchangeable parts. Fewer spares needed
  • Exchange service for nozzles and filters


The FKV is a wide slot-die coating head for continuous surface applications of thermoplastic or reactive hotmelts.

The compact design, fast changeover speeds and great features, makes the FKV a benchmark in pre-metered coating technology today. The FKV is typically used for laminating and profile wrapping equipment in the wood-working industry, as well as in coating and laminating systems for textiles, hygiene products, fabrics and foam materials, etc.

  • Finely adjustable coating widths from 200–2,600 mm. (manual or motorised)
  • Precisely controls the weight of the coat and reduce adhesive consumption
  • Compact construction
  • High production output
FK IT 25 / 50 / 75

Double-acting, electro-pneumatic coating heads for coating using thermoplastic adhesives in the low- to medium-viscosity range.

The FK IT 25 / 50 / 75 coating heads ensure precise cut-off at high speeds and fast switching times (cycles). The gluing process is optimized using mask technology and a cost-effective and flexible adhesive application ensured.

  • Negatively closing jetting elements for precise cut-off
  • Mask technology for a precise and reproducible application pattern
  • Adhesive viscosities: 100 – 10,000 mPas acc. to Brookfield
  • Speed, continuous coating: up to 250 m/min
  • Speed, intermittent application: up to 150 m/min
  • Compact design for easy integration
  • Option: CoolTouch insulation

The SpineCoat is a high-performance coating head for a very thin, reproducible adhesive application on the book spine.

The targeted system solution guarantees the clean melting and the volumetric pumping of PUR hotmelt adhesive with intermittent application.

  • Precise surface coating with coating thicknesses of 0.3 mm / 0.4 mm / 0.5 mm
  • Coating widths of 2 to 60 mm
  • Viscosities of 1,000 to 12,000 mPas
  • Speed: up to 5,000 books per hour
FKW 60

The FKW 60 is a highly accurate and efficient coating head for edge banding that replace the traditional contiunous-roll type.

Suitable for affordable edge banding or book binding, this coating head is characterized by precise, gentle and controlled application of hot glue and reactive PUR adhesive.

  • Coating width from 5–60 mm
  • Coating thickness from 0.3–0.5 mm
  • Fixed and adjustable slot nozzles
  • Viscosity range of 2 000–4,500 mPas
  • Precise application reduces glue consumption
  • Flexible fastening method enables a rapid change-over of the coating head to suit machines in right-hand or left-hand version
  • Capable of binding 4,500 books/hour in A4 format

The FKS is a coating head for applying adhesive in a continuous or intermittent pattern.

Suitable for thermoplastic adhesives, PSA, reactive PUR with viscosities from 100-20,000 mPas.

  • Carefully and precisely controlled, continuous, or intermittent surface coating
  • Coating width from 15–1,000mm
  • Excellent tear-off behaviour with minimal residue
