Nordson Introduces Concert Series Flow Controllers To Improve Efficiency And Quality In Nonwovens Manufacturing
DULUTH, Ga. — June 24, 2013 — Concert™ series flow controllers from Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq:
NDSN) enable monitoring and control of material flow during all phases of production. This helps
manufacturers measure, understand and improve material delivery and dispensing, enabling them to
reduce waste, improve product quality and enhance production efficiency. This variation management
capability is especially valuable in nonwoven disposable hygiene product manufacturing with
demanding, rapidly-changing flow requirements during ramp up and ramp down phases.
As part of a flow monitoring and closed-loop control system, Concert flow controllers measure actual material delivery, compare it to the production requirement and continuously adjust the melter pump output in real-time. This process vastly improves accuracy of material delivery, especially during production start.
Concert flow controllers accurately monitor or control up to two dispense circuits. And, they also support three heating zone pairs.
Nordson's Concert™ flow controller
These flow controllers use Nordson's intuitive, color touch screen Optix interface to simplify set-up and operation. Optix screens show real-time system status as well as support data logging and graphing to improve operational control. Local language support and on-screen help facilitate operator training.
The Concert flow controllers join the TruFlow meters, applicators and dividers to round out Nordson OptiBond™ solutions for variation management. The OptiBond portfolio accommodates both retrofit and new installations for everything from simple flow monitoring all the way up to sophisticated point-of-application, closed-loop control.
