On-Demand Quality Packaging to Meet Customer Needs

Nordson's flexible and precise adhesive application systems support the unique requirements of customized E-Commerce packaging:

Automatic E-Commerce packaging machines customizing each package based on the individual product size that needs to be packed. Nordson application systems can easily be fully integrated in these automated E-commerce packaging machines to support the highly precise and reliable adhesive application required.

The E-commerce business is even during the day highly versatile and this requires a flexible machine output, leading to specific adhesive application system requirements. The application system needs to be ready at any time, so the adhesive must be at application temperature. To minimize the degradation of adhesive under temperature, Nordson melter has a melt-on-demand feature, to prevent adhesive temperature stress, as only a very small amount of adhesive is molten due to the absence of an adhesive tank.

Easy and safe operation is also key in this high demanding E-Commerce market. The fulfill system is especially designed to automatically process the adhesive granulates from a (cold) bin to the Nordson melter and to avoid all necessary operator contact with high temperature parts. Also the Nordson components are designed to be touch safe or can be equipped with optional covers. Our hot melt system is modular and

scalable to match the optimum application needs, but is also flexible to upgrade future production needs.

Sustainability is currently one of the key trends in many markets! Nordson provides energy efficient equipment and has also adhesive verification and flow monitoring equipment to optimize the adhesive production process. This ensures efficient use of

resources and no unnecessary waste and/or too much adhesive is applied to ensure that the box is closed.
