MCP-4 control

 

The MCP-4 is a low-cost, full-featured adhesive system pattern control. It offers 4-channel outputs, each capable of multiple glue patterns, 4 product sensor inputs and optional integral flow control. Program changes and adjustments can be made “on-the-fly" with results immediately on the product.

 

Features include “plug-and-run” connectors and compact design for fast and easy installation. It is available with or without EPC flow control and vertical or horizontal mounting styles.


The MCP-4 can be used with an extensive selection of Valco’s cold-glue or hot melt adhesive dispensing valves including high-speed non-contact, spot gluing, fine-line gluing, and ribbon-pattern gluing. Suited to a range of applications from simple packaging requirements to complex folding carton production, envelope manufacturing, paper-folders, book and magazine production, bag-making, corrugated box-making and other high-speed converting requirements.

The MCP-8 offers 8-channel outputs, each capable of multiple glue patterns, 8 product sensor inputs and integral flow control. Program changes and adjustments can be made “on-the-fly" with results immediately on the product.

 

Features include “plug-and-run” connectors and compact design for fast and easy installation. It is available with remote mount control interface panel. 

 

The MCP-8 can be used with an extensive selection of Valco Melton’s cold-glue or hot melt adhesive dispensing valves including high-speed non-contact, spot gluing, fine-line gluing, and ribbon-pattern gluing. Multi-pattern, multi valve capabilities make it ideally suited to requirements such as specialty folder-gluers and complex folding carton production.

VCX control

The OT-120 touch-screen and VCX control system is designated as CartonPRO for gluing and quality assurance.


The OT-120 is a simple touch-screen interface that provides operators an easy-to-understand means of setup and control of all gluing and inspection system functions. The OT-120 can interface with 2 VCX control units.


The VCX control unit houses the main electronics including valve drivers, inspection, marking and ejection capabilities.


Control modules are selected according to desired system functions (up to 4 modules per VCX):

  • PCM Pattern control module, 4 valves, 4 scanners, with or without internal EPC (offers external EPC connection
  • ICM Inspection control module, 4 inspection boards slots, 1 marking output
  • TCM Tracking control module (installed in slot 4 only), used to control outputs such as a precision marking system, kicker, ejector and flipper, includes CDS code reader connection.

The VCX unit can include as many as 4 of the control modules listed above. If desired system functions do not require 4 of the control modules, a blanking plate must be ordered to fill the open spot. If the system requires more than 4 of the control modules, a second VCX unit is required.  Systems that require a second VCX will also require one of the secondary system stands. 


The OT-120/VCX can also be equipped with ValcoLink™/VisiPRO™PC remote access and data collection Software. VisiPRO offers live production status for downtime tracking, defect/scrap monitoring, historical machine data and event tracking.
