Controls

The main purpose of a control is to ensure the application of precise adhesive patterns at all machine speeds, irrespective of the type of glue pattern eg: continuous, pattern, stitching etc. It also provides the ability to control multiple glue valves simultaneously as well different types of electric and pneumatic valves depending upon the application. With a built in electronic pressure control (transducer), it can accurately control the amount of adhesive applied at varying speeds.

Valco Melton offers electronic controls and valve drivers for simple or complex glue patterns. The range extends from compact controls with push-switch data entry to microprocessor-based controls with touch screen programming. Controls feature front panel status indicators for fast system troubleshooting. Integral pressure control ensures consistent glue-volume output. The newest controls support jam prevention and glue pattern inspection. To learn more, contact us today.
