AERO - SPRAY HEAD FOR PRECISELY PLACED HOT MELT SPIRALS WITH EXCELLENT EDGE DEFINITION

With the Aero spray head, you get a spray application pattern with reproducible hot melt spirals with excellent edge definition. All application parameters can be set and regulated independently so that the spray application exactly meets your specifications. In addition, Aero is easy to maintain, straightforward to integrate, and can also be used with robot systems.

ADVANTAGES OF THE AERO SPRAY HEAD - AT A GLANCE

  • Reproducible spiral application with excellent edge definition thanks to external air heater
  • Independently adjustable application parameters for a precisely coordinated application pattern
  • Space-saving, as the external air heater can also be mounted remotely
  • Easy to maintain thanks to straightforward nozzle replacement and optional adhesive filter
  • CoolTouch insulation protects against burns in case of accidental contact
  • Straightforward integration and direct control via PLC

RANDOM SPRAYING OR HOT MELT SPIRALS WITH EXCELLENT EDGE DEFINITION

What is so special about the Aero? It has an external air heater. This means that the spray air temperature is controlled independently of the adhesive temperature. This is a decisive factor in spraying hot melt spirals with excellent edge definition. In addition to the spray air temperature, the timing of the air supply and the air pressure are important parameters as well. These parameters are set and controlled individually - the key to clean hot melt spiral application with excellent edge definition. The spray application width is 6 to 25 mm. If the spray air pressure is further increased, the spiral application becomes a random spray.

HOT MELT SPRAY APPLICATION FOR IRREGULAR PRODUCTS AND SURFACES

Aero is particularly suitable for hot melt spray applications on irregular products and surfaces. Typical applications are, for example, interior finishing and trim in the automotive industry or the gluing of insulation material in construction supplies. Aero is suitable for a wide range of hot melt spray applications because the spray head applies thermoplastic and reactive hot melt adhesives. Even high-viscosity hot melt adhesives are applied without problems because the spray air temperature can be flexibly controlled.

AERO IS FLEXIBLE TO INSTALL AND EASY TO INTEGRATE, EVEN IN ROBOT SYSTEMS

Depending on the installation situation, the external air heater can be mounted on the left or right of the heating section. If space is tight, it can also be mounted remotely from the heating section. The spray head can be controlled directly via a PLC using a standard 24 VDC interface. Aero is also suitable for use with robot systems. We offer an integration kit with corresponding brackets and software for a selection of collaborative robots.

REDUCES MAINTENANCE WORK AND PROTECTS AGAINST BURNS

An optional adhesive filter in the heating block reduces nozzle clogging and thus maintenance work. The SX filter type used and the AX Diamond S spray element are compatible with other Robatech application heads, which can positively affect the spare parts inventory. When a nozzle is due for replacement, the mounting nut is loosened, and the nozzle is easily replaced. Aero is equipped with CoolTouch insulation to protect personnel from burns in case of accidental contact with the spray head.
