Equipment Solutions for Flexible Packaging and Lamination
Reliable meter, mix and dispense equipment for accurate,
on-ratio adhesive dispensing
• Provides assurance that adhesives are mixed properly and on-ratio
• System monitors pressures and shuts down the unit if off-ratio conditions exist
• Ratio assurance results in reduced scrap, higher yield, less material waste,
and more process confidence
• Integrated USB interface lets you easily download process data onto a flash drive
for further analysis
Advanced Plural-Component Dispensing for Flexible
On-ratio dispensing means peace of mind
The Graco HFR™ Metering System for flexible packaging laminating applications is designed for accurate, on-ratio dispensing.
With the Graco HFR, you can reduce scrap and rework, thanks to the system’s accuracy, repeatability and ratio monitoring. Ideal
for low-to high-viscosity compounds, this hydraulic, fixed ratio metering system is advanced and reliable, yet affordable.
• Provides intermittent dosing actuated from nip sensor
• Provides on-ratio mixing with accuracies +/- 1%
• Handles higher viscosity products without heat
• Provides fixed ratio range 1:1 to 32:1
• Fixed ratio equipment can reduce operator tampering
while in production
• Handles polyurethane materials
Ratio assurance saves material costs
and downtime expense
Properly proportioned material means less scrap, less re-work, improved
yield, increased production uptime, better overall productivity and more
confidence in end results and quality. With an optional flow meter package
and communication module, you have the assurance that your materials are
applied on ratio. The flow meter package monitors actual ratios and detects
off-ratio conditions. If off-ratio conditions occur, the laminator automatically
shuts down. Communication protocol options to laminator include Discrete
I/O, DeviceNet, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, and ProfiNet.
Applications
• Solvent-free lamination process: the Graco HFR supplies mixed
material intermittently to a puddle between two smooth rollers
on a laminator. This “dosing area” is where adhesive is applied
to application rollers to bond films and foils together for flexible
packaging.

Intuitive, easy to use user interface
Less training time
The Graco HFR Metering Systems features
intuitive user controls based on the Graco
Control Architecture™.
Products using Graco Control Architecture
provide similar functionality across your
plant – which results in less training time for
you operators. In other words, if you learn
one system, you are already familiar with
the other.

Motor Control Module
• In constant communication with
the Advanced Display Module,
the Motor Control Module makes
real-time adjustments to deliver
a highly precise dispense
Advanced
Display Module
• Provides easy setup,
monitoring and system
diagnostics

data reporting
Graco Z-Series
Horizontal Pumps
• Provide precision control to
eliminate pressure spikes
• Positive displacement pumps
are easy to service with easy to-replace cartridge packings,
seals and pumps seats
IsoGuard Select ® System
Compact Design
• Prevents isocyanate crystallization –
less maintenance, more uptime
• Small footprint saves valuable
space in your plant
• 48W x 34D x 59H in
(122 x 150 x 86 cm)
Fully Configurable
• Select what you need for your material
and application – no more, no less
• Shorter lead time than custom solutions
• Standard wear parts are quickly available
Optional flow meter package monitors
the flow of “A” and “B” materials,
detects out-of-ratio conditions and
records data for further analysis.
Features
•Easy configuration of integrated
temperature controls
• Immediate access to error/event history
• Material usage and pump cycle counter
• Simple interface for machine calibration
The MD2 valve offers a
convenient snuff-back feature
for a clean, non-drip shut-off.
