ITW Dynatec Introduces Next Generation BF MicroBead Applicator

Ideal for High Speed Packaging Applications

HENDERSONVILLE, TN (August 6, 2012) – ITW Dynatec introduces the next generation BF MicroBead Applicator, with BF standing for “built-in filtration”, an exclusive feature of ITW Dynatec applicators. The new and improved built-in filter boasts a larger size and an “inside/outside” design to reduce cross-contamination. The MicroBead also touts rapid cycle speeds for high speed packaging applications for the dry foods and beverage industries.

Compact in size and available in single or dual module configurations, the BF MicroBead Applicator is optimized to work in conjunction with the next generation Dynamelt S adhesive supply unit and other ITW Dynatec packaging products.

“The new BF MicroBead Applicator is all about efficiency.  It contributes to higher line speeds, offers tremendous flexibility and dramatically lowers downtime,” says Steve Shoup, Business Development Manager.

Important features of the new product, which is available worldwide, include:

  • ITW Dynatec’s exclusive built-in filter (BF) technology has been enhanced and is now 23 percent larger to prevent nozzle clogging and boasts an “inside out” design to reduce cross contamination. This configuration offers a significant advantage over the leading competitor’s external filter.

  • On/off cycle speeds of 3.5 milliseconds for high-speed applications.

  • Available in single or dual module configurations with optional air control programs that operate solenoids independently for flexible application patterns.

  • Optional mounting brackets are available for simplified installation on any packaging line with little to no parent machine modification.

  • Insulated cover increases safety and promotes energy efficiency by retaining heat. Routine maintenance procedures can be performed with the cover in place.

  • Mini solenoid valves feature a quick-disconnect with no tools required to reduce maintenance times.

  • Available in competitive configurations.

  • Improved seal design for optimum performance and extended module life.

“With the addition of the next generation BF MicroBead Applicator, we have the best “total package” offering in the industry with the Dynamelt S, patented Gemini Hoses, ADS1 autofill system, EVC1 volume controller and unparalleled customer service and support,” says Steve Shoup.
