Robatech (Italian branch at Cesena, FC) has managed to combine speed with efficiency and wear resistance in the SpeedStar™ Diamond applicator guns, designed to guarantee extreme gluing precision, high speed and durability.
The new ultra-high speed electro-mechanic applicator head SpeedStar™ Diamond by Robatech dispenses up to 800 adhesive dots per second. Also, even though it reaches a temperature of up to 185 °C and viscosity of up to 5000mPas, it has an average life cycle longer than models already on the market; furthermore, thanks to the shutter’s (patented) innovative motion, it enables electronic monitoring of the operations and constant and continuous self-regulation of the stroke.
The SpeedStar™ guns operate with a high degree of precision and accuracy, since the shutter’s needle stroke is controlled and regulated automatically. Dot application and positioning also require no manual adjustments. A further advantage is offered by the considerable reduction in adhesive consumption. Indeed, thanks to the insulated and protected nozzle, homogeneous temperatures are achieved and, consequently, higher performance. What’s more, the use of an integrated filter prevents blockage.
Intelligent and cost-effective – SpeedStar™ guns are also competitive in terms of ecology and costs. First of all, in order to significantly improve energy efficiency and protect operators from the risk of burns, they are completely insulated (with a casing made from a special plastic material already used on the Diamond SX series). Furthermore, their small dimensions enable the installation of new heads in limited spaces and creating multi-module guns with extremely reduced interaxes. Their compatibility with most SX guns produced by Robatech enables retrofitting on existing installations. Finally, the installation’s functioning is constantly controlled by integrated electronics. Equipped with an LED display that supplies totally reliable status reports, their maintenance can also be planned with the help of the integrated with a touch screen panel.
Extremely precise, even at high speeds, these Robatech’s guns are suitable for applying adhesive even on the flaps of folding cases of small dimensions, such as for example those used to package candies, chewing gum or chocolate.
