    General Hot Melt Material ProcessingInstructions

    NOTE: Before processing hot melt material, carefully read the materialmanufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or material informationsheet. Nordson supplies only general processing instructions and is notliable for hazards associated with or damage caused by the use of hot meltmaterial.

    StorageStore the material in dry areas at room temperature. Keep it in covered,dust-protected containers.

    Preparations for Material Application/CoatingKeep the substrate at room temperature, dry, and free of dust and grease.Perform tests to determine the suitable hot melt material, optimum operatingconditions, and preliminary treatment of the substrate for the application.

    Some substrates contain plasticizers and other ingredients which dissipateover time. In some cases, surfaces are treated with waxes, anti-stick oils,etc. Without adequate pretreatment, the hot melt bond in these applicationsmay be defective at the time of dispensing.

    Processing TemperatureThe application temperature of the hot melt material at the nozzle is crucialfor effective bonds.

    Refer to the material manufacturer’s MSDS or material information sheet.

    Avoid unnecessary thermal stress. If the work is interrupted, reduce themelting temperature.

    Avoid heating the hot melt material above the prescribed processing tem-perature. Higher temperatures may cause charring of the hot melt material.This results in downtime. In addition, material may generate dangerous va-pors at excessively high temperatures. Remove these vapors by using ap-propriate exhaust systems.

    Danger of BurnsBe careful when using hot melt materials. These materials are solid at roomtemperature. For proper application, they may be heated to temperatures ofup to 230 �C (450 �F). Refer to the safety instructions in the Safety section.

    Mixing Hot Melt MaterialsAvoid mixing different hot melt materials. Refer to Changing the Hot MeltMaterial in the Maintenance section.

    Disposal of Hot Melt MaterialRefer to the supplier’s MSDS or material information sheet.

    Additional Note for Polyurethane (PUR)When processing Polyurethane-type hot melt materials (PUR), you mustfollow these additional instructions carefully:

    � Use appropriate respiratory equipment when material vapors exceedpermissible limit values.

    � If prescribed by the material manufacturer, pressurize the applicator’stank with an inert gas blanket.

    � During production breaks, set the temperature back and close the gunnozzles temporarily with vaseline or dip them into another suitable oil.

    � Do not empty the tank completely. PUR material residues in bores maycure.

    P/N 7105681B� 2007 Nordson Corporation LA 820 / LA 820 RCIssued 04/07

    FunctioningThe following figure illustrates the basic method of operation of an adhesivegun within a complete system.

    Adhesive is to be applied to a substrate (7). The transport belts (8) conveythe substrates. When the leading edge of a substrate reaches the photocell(10), the beam of light sent is reflected and the program is started. Thecontrol unit compiles all the data according to the speed of the productionmachine. The encoder (4) is mechanically connected to the transportequipment via a gear and supplies one pulse per mm. The control unitevaluates all the data and establishes the point at which the liquid adhesiveguns (5) must be activated.

    The pump (12) is connected to the compressed air supply (1). It operatescontinuously and pumps the liquid adhesive from the adhesive reservoir (11) to the liquid adhesive guns (5).

    A current between 0-20 mA is supplied from the control unit (3) to theproportional pressure control valve (2). The strength of the current isdependent on the speed of the production machine. The strength of thecurrent determines how far the proportional pressure control valve (2)should be opened and the regulator (9) opens accordingly. The adhesiveflows to the liquid adhesive guns (5) and is applied to the substrate. Thelength of the application is defined by the control unit program.

    Section 5Maintenance

    WARNING: Allow only qualified personnel to perform the following tasks.Observe and follow the safety instructions in this document and all otherrelated documentation.

    The adhesive gun is easy to maintain and, in general, maintenance-free.Under normal conditions, all the components have a long service life.

    WARNING: Disconnect the power supply!

    WARNING: Shut off the adhesive supply.

    WARNING: When possible, always wear protective gloves when carryingout the work.

    Always observe the following basic points:

    � Ensure that the material to be applied is in a clean, filtered condition.

    � Individual operating conditions and different application materials requirea corresponding minimum effort for maintenance.

    � Do not use metallic, sharp-edged tools to clean the outside of theequipment, e.g. nozzle tips, only use soft brushes.

    � When carrying out repair or maintenance work, keep the working spaceas well as the gun to be repaired as clean as possible.

    � Adhesive guns which are soiled should be thoroughly flushed throughwhen the opportunity occurs. This is possible particularly when thenozzle needle or material nozzles need to be replaced.

    � The adhesive guns should not remain installed for any importantmaintenance work but be removed from the machine.

    � Depressurize the material supply lines beforehand.

    Preventive Maintenance

    Cleaning the Liquid Adhesive GunIt is not necessary to clean the adhesive gun if air is prevented fromentering into the hydraulic system and coming into contact with the glue. Ifthis occurs, however, the glue starts to solidify after approx. 30 minutes. Theprecise time varies according to the adhesive used. Blocked nozzle orificesor guns can be cleaned easily at any time.

    NOTE: Do not disassemble an adhesive gun in which glue has solidified! Itis highly likely this would damage sensitive components.

    We recommend immersing the adhesive gun in warm water for 1-2 days tosoften the glue. Repeat the process several times, if necessary. If theadhesive gun still cannot be disassembled, return it to us for repair.

    Regular MaintenanceWe recommend flushing the liquid adhesive guns with water twice a year.The guns should always be kept clean, residual glue and dirt being removeddaily.
