Increase productivity and reduce adhesive waste

Fast setup, easy programming and less adhesive – it all adds up to increase productivity with flexibility to adapt when you need it.

Easy Pattern Setup

  • See pattern definitions all on one page for a comprehensive view
  • Eliminate the guesswork of pattern setup with on-screen pattern preview
  • Copy, delete or name patterns so you can change quickly and keep your line running
  • Clone one gun sequence to another when all you need is to repeat the job
  • Save time by inserting or deleting beads without editing the rest of the pattern

Stitching

  • Save on adhesive consumption by changing solid beads to stitched beads
  • Easily stitch individual beads or the entire pattern
  • Turn stitching on or off with the push of a button

Operating modes

  • Match adhesive output with line speed – put down less at slow speeds and more at high speeds – the right amount when and where you want it
  • Time-based – for those cases where all you need is simple pattern control
  • Distance-based at a fixed line speed or with an encoder – for when you need precise control or when you want to adjust to changing line speeds
  • Not sure? Switch between modes without changing the program!

"50% glue savings is awesome and programming is unbelievably easy."
