In May 2019, the Robatech Group launched its new branding. Since then, Green Gluing makes even more visible what has always been part of the philosophy of the Swiss family-owned company: bringing economic and ecological thinking and acting into harmony. This week, three environmental organizations received their donations from the Green Gluing voting campaign.
Just in time for Green Gluing's birthday, the donation amount of CHF 10,000 was paid out to the environmental organizations Rainforest Alliance, Ocean Conservancy, and Birdlife International proportionally according to the voting results. With that, Robatech AG emphasizes its general commitment to sustainability. This is based on the belief that every measure, no matter how small, can make a difference for the environment. Green Gluing, therefore, stands for much more than optimized gluing processes.
Robatechs new hot-melt application head SpeedStar Compact delivers the smallest dot and bead application for demanding gluing applications in the packaging, converting, and graphic industry. Smallest installation dimensions, speed, and durability characterize this jetting head.
SpeedStar Compact can be easily integrated into systems with limited space. Thanks to the electronic unit being detached from the jetting head, the SpeedStar Compact is 46 mm shorter than its predecessor SpeedStar Diamond. High-precision adhesive application over the entire service life of 500 million switching cycles is made possible by automatic stroke adjustment, which is unique on the market. With a maximum application speed of 800 dots per second, SpeedStar Compact is particularly suitable for high production speeds.
With the new AMS adhesive measuring system, Robatech AG ensures greater sustainability and process reliability in the industrial hot melt adhesive application. AMS not only enables cost transparency and reduced adhesive consumption, but also reliably reports errors in the adhesive application.
The new AMS adhesive measuring system from Robatech AG is all about Green Gluing. It supports customers and adhesive manufacturers with data and analyses to optimize adhesive application quantities and brings transparency to the adhesive process. The usual safety margins in the adhesive application can be reduced or entirely omitted without risking a loss of quality in the bonding process.
AMS measures the actual adhesive consumption and compares the data with the stored reference values from the configuration database of the Robatech Control System. If the applied adhesive application quantity deviates from the defined tolerance range, a fast error message is displayed.
With just one platform - the Robatech Control System - you control and monitor all functionalities of the adhesive application process easily and centrally. The compact system facilitates the integration with host machines and offers a variety of communication options.
The Robatech Control System is extremely user-friendly, ready-to-use for Industry 4.0, and very flexible. The standardized user interface with intuitive user guidance, the acquisition and evaluation of operating and performance data as well as the modular, easily expandable scope of functions of the control platform increase the efficiency and transparency in the adhesive application. Fast error detection, reduced adhesive application, and reliable monitoring functions ensure increased process reliability. Users are always up to date: remotely, at the host, or locally at the melter.
Continuous hot-melt adhesive bead application allows high production speeds and achieves precise and uniform gluing. Ruizhi Packing Co., Ltd. in China also recognizes these benefits. The company converted its machines for the production of window bags from a roller system to a Robatech hot melt system.
With the conversion, Ruizhi achieved a productivity increase of 50 %. However, this was not the only reason that Robatech was selected as the exclusive supplier of the adhesive application system for these machines. “As we export 70 % of our machines, our customers also benefit from Robatechs global service network,” says YiZhi Xu, President of Ruizhi. “This results in added value for us as a machine builder as well.“
On May 1, 2019, the Robatech Group launched Green Gluing, presenting the company in a new, modern design. With its new look, the company for high-quality adhesive application solutions communicates its values and core properties even more clearly. The focus is on innovations, efficiency, sustainability, and services.
Fresh, clear and with strong images – that is how Robatech redesigned itself. With the slogan Green Gluing, the company builds a bridge between the industrial adhesive application process and fundamental ecological values. The focus is on innovative and efficient solutions that lead to optimized adhesive application processes in close cooperation with customers – with Robatech as a competent and reliable partner.
Headquartered in Switzerland, the Robatech Group is a leading global manufacturer of innovative and sustainableadhesive application solutions for industrial hot-melt and cold-glue applications. Robatech has produced and supplied high-quality controls, application heads, melting and dosing systems since 1975. In 80 countries Robatech representatives advise and support customers in a wide variety of industries around all questions and concerns regarding adhesive application and optimization of gluing processes. Specially trained service experts support customers locally according to their individual needs.
