The customer's request was to create a solution for creating an assembly for the filter and its anchorage in a plastic body at an application temperature of 110 °C.
The solution was to use an application head attached to a collaborative robot that cooperates with the production operator. It was necessary to select an appropriate adhesive and set the optimum dosage for the assembly with a wide dimension tolerance field.
The technology adjusted in this way communicates with the robot and doses adhesives as needed automatically. It can produce more than 15,000 filters a day.
The customer's request was to optimise the existing process of ironing board gluing, which took place using a manual application gun.
The solution was to switch to an automatic production line. Firmly positioned application heads dose adhesive in a precise constant quantity and in a faster production cycle.
Thanks to the new solution, the customer could save a quarter of the costs for adhesive consumption and 4 production workers, who could be utilised in other parts of the production process.
A furniture manufacturer contacted Kaletech with the requirement to deliver technology for the application of a cold adhesive for anchoring construction bolts. This operation had been made manually so far.
The solution consisted of an automatic application system for a dispersion adhesive using an industrial robot. The gluing device control unit communicates with the robot and applies the adhesive precisely in the required amount depending on its movement.
Thanks to this solution, the customer acquired a work station operating with sustainable quality and higher production. They saved 6 workers, who can now be utilised for other production activities.
A leading automotive upholstery manufacturer contacted Kaletech with a request for automated measurement of adhesive application for upholstery for car door panels. The customer's main requirement was to keep the adhesive deposit between two layers of upholstery materials constant.
The solution consisted of the use of a travelling thermal camera which scans and measures the adhesive coating thickness. It evaluates and gives a warning if the layer breaches the limits or indicates future irregularities and produces a report for quality control. The device has the possibility to change the gluing parameters on-line.
The new solution is more efficient from the point of view of adhesive consumption and thanks to the automated measurement system, the quality of uniformity of its application is monitored continuously. Our customer saves €27,000 per year on rejects and €8,500 on adhesive consumption.
A request from a leading car seat manufacturer involved the delivery of adhesive application technology capable of collaborating with an industrial robot in order to make the production automatic.
The application head applies a spray coating of hot-melt adhesive. Depending on the movement and position of the industrial robot, it deliberately omits the places above holes.
The result is a fully automated work station with the precise application of the desired layer of adhesive in the desired locations.
The customer's requirement was to deliver gluing technology which would allow them to change the parameters and gluing width according to the needs of individual products.
The solution was to design a unique application head with 78 modules and a blade that allows intermittent adhesive application.
The customer can set the parameters and width of gluing for individual products without stopping production for complicated adjustment of the machine.
The customer's requirement was to upgrade a 50-year-old formwork machine. Compared to standard production, the edges had to be banded to avoid penetration of moisture in the formwork.
Kaletech managed to synchronise the operation of the machine with a modern adhesive application system, thus making the original obsolete machine competitive again.
Thanks to the retrofit, the customer can continue using their production technology. In this way, the need to make a considerable investment in a new production line is avoided.
The customer's request was to deliver gluing technology for bottle labelling. They required versatility and the possibility to use the technology for multiple product types, each with a different number of joins.
The solution was the use of seven application modules for sprayed adhesive application and connection of the control unit with a PLC production program.
The modules apply adhesive at the desired height according to the specific product. Everything is controlled automatically and it is not necessary to adjust the machine settings.
The customer's request was to deliver gluing technology for the production of packaging with different heights depending on the volume of packaging.
The solution was the use of an adhesive bead application using a head which automatically changes its height according to the given product.
The modules apply adhesive at the desired height, according to the specific product. Everything is controlled automatically, production can take place even for a large quantity of packages, and there is no need to adjust the machine settings.
