How reliably and precisely products are glued also depends on the heated hose. The fully insulated Performa heated hose keeps the temperature and viscosity of the melted adhesive as constant over the hose’s entire length as a temperature controller keeps the oven temperature. Gluing becomes more reliable, but also less expensive. The state-of-the-art heated hose insulation and the PrimeConnect plug coupling ensure quick operational readiness and outstanding energy efficiency.
Maintaining a constant adhesive temperature over the entire length of a heated hose is a technical challenge. Performa masters the challenge with high-tech insulation and sophisticated heating conductor winding. The result: no local adhesive overheating during production stops. Reliability and precision in the adhesive application are increased because the adhesive viscosity remains at an optimum level.
The PrimeConnect plug coupling optimally heats and insulates the critical connection points between the hose ends and the adhesive melter or application head. The otherwise common thermal bridges are eliminated. Viscosity remains constant. An important prerequisite for applying adhesive uniformly and consistently to products - even after a production stop.
PrimeConnect is a plug coupling that allows Performa heating hoses to be connected and removed easily and safely without special tools.
PrimeConnect is a time-saver, especially for applications that require mobile use of adhesive systems or frequent production line retrofits, such as seasonal products.
Performa’s energy-efficient design pays off. Compared to Robatech’s Enduro heated hose, Performa requires 45 % less energy in operation and is ready for operation up to 30 % faster. The waiting time after a production stop is noticeably reduced.
Performa heated hoses remain in use for a long time and prevent unpleasant surprises. The full insulation and uniform temperature distribution ensure that the adhesive does not degrade and the application head remains functional.
With PrimeConnect, personnel is protected from burns. The connection points are completely covered by heated hose caps with CoolTouch insulation. The external temperature of the heated hose is harmless: it only reaches 54 °C at a set temperature of 200 °C.
Performa is suitable for low-viscosity thermoplastic adhesives (EVA, PSA, PO) and reactive adhesives (PUR). The smooth hose surface is abrasion-resistant and easy to clean.
Performa is compatible with adhesive melters and application heads built in 2000 and later. The mechanical connection points can be retrofitted gradually. This allows adhesive application systems to be upgraded in terms of performance and safety.
