B & H Glue Extrusion System 2.0
The B & H Glue Extrusion System 2.0 (GES 2.0) is a patented, fully automatic, recipe driven hot melt adhesive applicator for roll-fed labeling.
It isn’t a glue wheel system.
It isn’t a spray glue system.
It is new, different, and it is changing the way hot melt adhesives are applied to roll-fed labels.
The B & H GES 2.0 is exclusively available as part of the Marathon series of labelers.
Principles of Operation
The B & H GES 2.0 applies a precisely extruded film of hot melt adhesive to preprogramed locations on a label through a vertical pattern nozzle. Using proprietary algorithms developed by B & H, the fully automatic PLC controlled system accurately and consistently extrudes and applies hot melt adhesive to labels regardless of production speed.
This new extrusion based application system completely eliminates rotating glue wheels, glue bars, glue wires, doctor blades and all the related mechanical parts currently needed to control glue application and recirculation.
Yes, you read it right.
Glue wheels, glue bars, glue wires, doctor blades, glue pans and all the related mess are gone, replaced by a closed, recipe based system that uses the precision of extrusion technology to apply consistent, void free glue patterns.
The First Breakthrough Glue Application Innovation For Roll-fed Labeling Since B & H Introduced The Glue Wheel System Over 45 Years Ago.
GES 2.0 represents true breakthrough innovation for roll-fed labeling, the first since the invention of the glue wheel system by B & H over forty years ago. It is changing the way hot melt adhesives are applied to roll-fed labels because of the wide range of compelling benefits it offers versus both glue wheel and spray glue systems.
Here are a few of the system's highlights:
- Void free glue patterns
- Consistent glue laydown weights
- Precise placement of glue patterns on labels
- Fully automatic operation - no adjustments or set-up required
- No glue slinging, no angel hair, no glue build-up on vacuum drums or glue wires, no glue pan overflows
- Less downtime and higher productivity
- Less glue waste
- 90% reduction in glue recirculation and reheating
- Wider range of adhesive options, including higher viscosity adhesives
- Eliminates traditional vacuum drum repadding
