BF Micro Optima™ - Auto Adhesive Applicator
ITW Dynatec's BF Micro Optima™ Applicator is an air-operated, single-nozzle hot melt adhesive applicator assembly with an integrated filter cartridge which prevents particulate matter from obstructing flow through the head. It is used with intermittent pressure and constant pressure hot melt adhesive supply units (ASUs).

Each applicator features one Micro Optima module mounted to a single service block. The module is "optimized" (self-cleaning), and it's nozzle is integrated into the module, making it maintenance free. The Micro Optima module is designed for high speed/high pressure (above 400 psi) applications where a sharp cutoff is necessary.
Each module operates with air pressure opening and closing the orifice. Air open/air close functionality reduces stringing and gives a clean, sharp cutoff every time throughout the life of the head, unlike spring-operated applicators which cause more stringing as the spring wears and loses tension. Oh, did we mention the air open/air close functionality is standard?
In addition, the mounting brackets for the Mod-Plus applicators can be placed on the top or back, allowing for more versatile installation options. High performance seals (which are also standard) improve applicator life, while the platinum sensor allows for better temperature control over conventional temperature control sensors.
