InvisiPac Tank-Free Hot Melt Delivery System ®
InvisiPac ® Tank-Free™ Hot Melt Delivery System InvisiPac. So reliable, you’ll forget it’s even there. Innovative hot melt equipment for the packaging industry • Quick start-up – ready in less than 10 minutes, eliminating costly downtime • Tank-Free – adhesive supplied and melted to meet your application’s demand means less adhesive time at high temperature • Less adhesive time at high temperature means less char and less material degradation • No nozzle plugging due to tank char means less system maintenance and more uptime • Less degradation leads to better shot repeatability – less material waste, better quality assurance • Great performance, even with low-cost adhesives How it works Graco’s InvisiPac uses an integrated vacuum system to feed adhesive to an in-line melter. An ultrasonic sensor monitors adhesive in the chamber, and additional adhesive is automatically added as needed based on the demand of your application. With its efficient heat transfer design, the InvisiPac System has adhesive throughput capability equivalent to or better than many hot melt tank systems. The result? You get a continuous flow of adhesive during production that significantly reduces the time adhesive sits at temperature. Less time at high temperature means less char, less maintenance and more uptime. 2 2 Optional Light Tower Filter • Indicates system status at a glance • Large surface area for months of maintenance free operation Pump In-line Melter • Graco two-ball design leverages over 85 years of fluid handling expertise • Tank-Free design • Melts adhesive to meet your application demand • Proven NXT® Air Motor technology provides reliable shot consistency • Reduces char and improves uptime Intuitive User Interface • Reaches operating temperature in less than 10 minutes • Graphics and text make operation simple • Circular design allows first-in, first-out adhesive flow • Easy troubleshooting – points you to the root of the problem Integrated Automatic Vaccum Feed System • Single screen view of all heat zone temperatures • Saves labor costs automatically by pulling adhesive from a drum or bulk container • Tracks adhesive consumption • USB downloadable operating data, errors and event history • Automatically keeps adhesive at optimum levels • Keeps paper dust & debris out • Promotes improved hygiene and consistent bead weights by eliminating thermal shock Power Entry Module • Simple jumper-less installation • Automatically detects 480V system and protects from overload InvisiPac GS35 • Patent-pending module filter design provides plug-free operation Superior Heated Hoses • Superior hose construction buffers heat, virtually eliminating char build up Visit www.invisipac.com for more information on the InvisiPac HM25 and HM50 3 Tank-free design: setting a new packaging industry standard Why tank-free is preferable to traditional tank systems • Consistent adhesive levels help prevent char from forming • Less molten volume means the adhesive spends less time at temperature – resulting in less char and less degradation • More choices – you can use low-grade adhesives when it makes sense or high-grade adhesives to ensure premium performance Traditional Tank Systems InvisiPac’s Tank-Free System • Heat to operating temperature slowly • Heats to operating temperature quickly • Keep large quantities of adhesive at high temperatures • Maintains continuous flow of heated-on-demand adhesive • Allow degradation of adhesive integrity • Safeguards adhesive integrity • Create char and cause plugged nozzles • Eliminates plugged nozzles due to tank char • Achieves the same or better melt rate than most large-capacity tank systems A Network of Support for the Packaging Industry Worldwide Support Global distribution With infrastructure throughout the world, your company will benefit from Graco’s knowledgeable, global network of professionals.
