Stop and see how EcoStitch valves maximize your overall equipment efficiency while minimizing your total cost of ownership.

CINCINNATI, OH – For the last 70 years, Valco Melton has been committed to enhancing the industry standard by developing next-generation products in the paper-converting, end-of-line packaging, and other specialty adhesive dispensing industries. At PackExpo in Chicago, at 10:30 am on Monday, October 24th, and Tuesday, October 25th, in booth S3483, Valco Melton will be running a live demo of EcoStitch valves applying adhesives side by side against a traditional pneumatic valve. Come and witness the EcoStitch advantage live and in person against the current industry standard.

Valco Melton’s EcoStitch valves have been engineered to operate in industrial hot melt applications, with a special focus on the food and beverage packaging industry. Applying precisely placed and perfectly circular dots of glue onto packaging, EcoStitch delivers a more efficient, consistent, and failsafe gluing process. By adjusting the dot and gap size of the applied adhesive EcoStitch valves allow the user to reduce adhesive consumption by up to 70%. This reduction alone can provide a return on investment (ROI) in as little as four months.

Aside from savings in adhesives, EcoStitch valves also add value to the gluing process by minimizing downtime and reducing spare part usage. EcoStitch valves are designed with zero dynamic seals and eliminate the cost and hassle of providing plant air for system operation. This design allows the valve to operate at high speeds, reaching 15,000 cycles per minute in short burst with a lifespan of up to 2 billion cycles before failure. Operating at lower output pressures, larger nozzle sizes, and the lack of dynamic seals, promise less downtime from glue system failure.

These reductions in adhesive consumption, part replacement, and overall machine maintenance allow EcoStitch users to maximize their overall equipment efficiency (OEE) while minimizing their total cost of ownership (TCO). Come to Valco Melton’s booth Monday, October 24 or Tuesday, October 25th at 10:30am to see why EcoStitch has the edge over traditional pneumatic valves.
