As a global designer of gluing and quality inspection technologies for label manufacturing, Valco Melton offers converters a reliable hot melt system for uniform coatings across the entire web width, without the need for manual intervention. Akura Hot Melt Coating Solution not only ensures better product quality but also reduces the risk of production errors and waste, thus resulting in significant cost savings. 
Akura Solution combines our Akura hot melt coating applicators with our Inspekt range of quality assurance tools. Akura applicators feature independent hydraulic zones, each fed by a gear pump. This ensures an even distribution of the adhesive across the web width. Weight-Inspekt controls the average grammage of each hydraulic zone in a closed-loop with the gear pumps. When deviations are detected, it automatically adjusts the adhesive flow for the specific hydraulic zone, ensuring consistent product quality. Coat-Inspekt vision inspection system combines real-time error detection with an AI system that automatically classifies all errors into pre-set categories, providing an immediate and intuitive overview of production status. 
Additionally, we will present our BrailleChek Label vision inspection system. Using high-speed camera technology and custom lighting, BrailleChek examines each Braille dot embossed on the printed side of the label, at full production speed, detecting missing or poorly formed dots, as well as registration errors. 
Come see these and many other hot melt coating solutions at our Stand C24 in Hall 6.
