Astro CH42 Pattern Controller, 4 Events
Astro Packaging/Slautterback® CH42 Hot Melt Pattern Controller
The CH42-T Hot Melt Pattern Control is a four event speed tracking controller combining the features of the ET4-T Pattern Controller, with the power of an HD2A Driver. Both the hot melt pattern controller and head driver support two independent inputs and two independent outputs. The CH42-T hot melt pattern controller is well suited for one or two output, variable speed applications, with high-speed and high-precision requirements.
The CH42-T Hot Melt Pattern Controller automatically maintains constant pattern length at varying line speeds receiving line speed input from a Tachometer Generator. The head driver enhances the speed and accuracy of electric glue guns by increasing the opening and closing speeds. The CH42-T can open an electric valve in 2 to 4 milliseconds, hold it open for as few as 1 to 2 milliseconds, and close in 2 to 4 milliseconds. Electric glue guns can cycle open/close up to 120 times per second.
The CH42-T hot melt pattern controller is packaged in a dust proof and water resistant metal case rated for temperatures up to 150°F (66°C). Internal wiring options are available on convenient terminal strip.
