In addition to this operating manual, there must be available instructions regarding legal and other mandatory regulations relating to accident prevention and to relevant requirements of the employers‘ liability insurance association.

Wear protective gloves and safety goggles when-

ever you work with the applicator.

To avoid accidents lay the cables so that they will

not cause any risk of stumbling.

Safety Measures to be taken during Operation

The equipment must only be used by trained, instructed and authorized persons. These persons must have read the operating instructions and be able to work accordingly. Before using the applicator, check it for visible damage and make sure that it is only used when in proper and safe condition. Notify detected defects to your superior immediately.

Safety Instructions for the Operation of the MS 80 and MS 150 Hot-Melt Glue Applicators

Wear protective gloves and safety goggles when-

ever you work with the applicator.

Avoid accidents by stumbling – Lay all cables, hoses

and conducts so that they will not cause any risk of

stumbling. For this, install cable ducts and bridges.

• Only fill the tank up to just under the upper rim.

Never exceed the operating temperature of the

hot-melt. This temperature is indicated in the techni-

cal datasheet of the hot-melt. Overheating may lead

to decomposition which may affect the health of the

user as well as the operability of the applicator.

• Once the applicator has warmed up, nozzle and lid

are very hot.

Never start working before fitting a nozzle first.

• Unplug the connecting cable, before replacing a

nozzle. Warning: risk of burns! When a nozzle is re-

placed, liquid glue might leak out.

Never bring the hot nozzle into contact with the cable.

Never direct the glue jet towards people.

• When your skin got into contact with hot glue, cool it

with cold water immediately. Do not try to remove

the hot-melt from the skin first. If necessary, consult

a doctor. When hot adhesive got into your eyes, im-

mediately cool them under running water for about

15 minutes and consult your doctor at once.

• Always deposit the glue applicator on the stand pro-

vided for this purpose.

• Do not lay the applicator on its side.

Never hold nozzle top upward.

• Do not carry out overhead work.

• Stop using the equipment, if the casing is damaged

due to shock, breakage or heavy wear.

• Do not feed solvents or paraffin. Risk of explosion!

Start-up and Control

Avoid accidents by stumbling – Lay all cables, hoses

and conducts so that they will not cause any risk of

stumbling. For this, install cable ducts and bridges.

Glue Applicator MS 80

The MS 80 glue applicator is factory-set to 190 °C. The temperature is infinitely adjustable at the rear side of the instrument, using a screw driver. The right-end stop is the maximum temperature of 200 °C.

Glue Applicator MS 150

Wear protective gloves and safety goggles when-

ever you work with the applicator.

Never direct the glue jet towards people!

Never lay the hot-melt applicator on its side.

Do not hold the nozzle top upward.

Do not carry out overhead work.

Do not start working, before fitting a nozzle first.

Only open the lid when the applicator has warmed up.

Do not overcharge the applicator; only fill it just

under the rim.

Stop using the equipment, if the casing is damaged

due to shock, breakage or heavy wear.

The temperature of the MS 150 glue applicator may be infinitely set up to 200 °C. For this, set the rotary button to the requested position:

4 = ~ approx. 70°C 10 = ~ approx. 160°C

6 = ~ approx. 100°C 12 = ~ approx. 190°C

Minor leaking out of the nozzle during the heat-up period is caused by the hot-melt expanding in the nozzle/heating chamber.

Loading Hot-Melt

• The MS 80/150 glue applicators must only be used

to dispense non-reactive hot-melts. Never feed

other materials. The hot-melt glue applicator is

capable of working with all non-reactive hot-melt

types which are designed for working temperatures

of up to max. 200 °C.

lower rim of the feeding opening.

• Shut the lid and allow the applicator to melt the glue.

• After the end of the heat-up period (approx. 10 min.),

open the lid and load granulate up to just under the

The glue applicator must only be used/applied for its intended purpose. Please read the chapter „General

Safety Instructions“. If it is not used as intended, this may cause bodily injuries or equipment damages. Disregard of the safety instructions for the use of the applicator may lead to serious burns.

Applying Hot-Melt Replacement of Nozzles

Wear protective gloves and safety goggles when-

ever you work with the applicator.

Never start working before fitting a nozzle first.

Never direct the glue jet towards people!

Do not start working before the glue has molten.

Badly molten glue is thick and it needs a lot of force

to press it off the applicator. Doing so would damage

the applicator.

Always deposit the glue applicator on the wire stand

provided for this purpose.

The glue applicator must not be laid on its side.

Do not open the lid before the applicator has

warmed up.

Warning: risk of burns!

When your skin got into contact with hot glue, cool

it with cold water immediately. Do not try to remove

the hot-melt from the skin first. If necessary, consult

a doctor. When hot adhesive got into your eyes, im-

mediately cool them under running water for about

15 minutes. Consult your doctor at once!

For your own safety wear protective gloves and

safety goggles when you replace nozzles.

Always unplug the applicator before replacing a

nozzle!

When your skin got into contact with hot glue, cool it

with cold water immediately. Do not try to remove the

hot-melt from the skin first. If necessary, consult a

doctor. When hot adhesive got into your eyes, im-

mediately cool them under running water for about

15 minutes. Consult your doctor at once!

Only replace nozzles when the glue applicator is warm

(instrument temperature 60 – 80 °C) and empty. Replacing a nozzle when the applicator is cold may damage the equipment. Replacing the nozzle when the applicator is too hot, causes liquid glue to flow out. The melting range as well as the melting point of the used glue may be taken from the technical datasheet of the respective glue.

Make yourself familiar with applicator first. Apply a little glue in varying forms on a piece of paper or cardboard; for example dots and beads. Always keep the working temperature of the specific hot-melt glue. This temperature is indicated in the technical datasheet of the hot-melt glue.

The quantity to be applied is determined by pressing the trigger: the longer you press, the more glue flows out.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Never fill soiled glue into the melting tank. If you observe all advices given in the operating manual, the glue applicator does, normally, not need cleaning. The nonreactive glue contained in the applicator will remelt and can be used for gluing again.

The working temperature of the respective glue may be taken from the technical datasheet which can be procured from the producer of the glue. This temperature must not be exceeded, otherwise the glue may coke in the glue applicator. Hot-melts on a polyamide basis are particularly sensitive. If the glue has coked, the applicator with should be cleaned with REKA cleaning liquid (article 3519).

Never clean the applicator with solvent, benzine, benzene, toluene, acetone, turpentine, etc. risk of explosion!

If the applicator is used very often, we recommend to have it maintained regularly. For this, fix a date with our service department.
