Vector Slot Adapter
The Vector® platform’s flexibility facilitates a variety of pump configurations to meet strict produc-tion requirements. The metered pumps are mounted on twenty-five millimeter centers, all of whichare driven by a common motor, and ensure cross-web accuracies of up to ±0.5%. The adhesivesupply to the metering device is isolated from the application point and eliminates the requirementof exact metering from the adhesive supply unit. ITW Dynatec has created a high volume adhesivesupply unit, the Vector® Melter, equipped with a piston pump sized to deliver a large volume of adhesive over a great distance. A patented hot melt pressure regulator conditions this bulk adhesivefeed into a consistent feed with little or no pressure variation to one or more metering devices. TheVector distribution and metering system eliminates the problems associated with long hose runswhile increasing the accuracy and versatility of metering systems.
Pump design permits rapid changeover and precise control of adhesive volumes.
Vector® Technology is extremely versatile and provides different volumes from a single motor in-put. When changes are made to an adhesive weight and/or product requirement, a simple pumpchange is all that is required, significantly reducing costly downtime. Also, The Vector® Platformuses interchangeable parts for all applications and metered platforms reducing spare parts inventoryand maintenance. Each metering pump is fixed with two screws on top of each metering pump. Thisallows disassembly and assembly of pumps in less than three minutes. The Vector® radial drivegear pump does not have any dynamic seals that require frequent maintenance. All the rotatingcomponents are within the wetted area, eliminating the need for rotary seals. This assures an ex-tended life of the metered pumps and minimal downtime.
Versatility, adaptability and reliability.
The focus of ITW Dynatec with Vector technology is the ability to provide manufacturers the versa-tility to meet most application requirements. If those requirements change, Vector can be readilyadapted with a minimal amount of expense. Vector® provides long-term value to the customer byusing a common pump base, interchangeable components and a variety of available output devices.
