Astro E100 Glue Gun, Single Module
Astro / Slautterback® E100 Hot Melt Applicator
The E100 glue head is all electric hot melt adhesive dispensing heads. As the central valving components of Astro Packaging hot melt systems, E100 heads dispense beads or dots of hot melt adhesive or other thermoplastic materials. A large selection of nozzles provides a variety of adhesive patterns.
The applicator head design is simple, reliable and durable. Requiring no compressed air or a complex valving system, the E100 consists of one simple valve, one static o-ring, one electric solenoid, one or two cartridge heaters, a thermostat or RTD sensor and a power cable. A pattern controller signals the solenoid to activate the valve and dispense adhesive.
The standard speed E100 valves are actuated by AC voltage and meet most application requirements. If faster valving action or greater precision of pattern placement is required, the heads may be enhanced with an optional high speed valving assembly. The high speed valve requires the use of a Astro Packaging Head Driver. Kits are available to replace other manufacturers’ automatic guns that easily adapt the E100 glue heads.
