Adhesive Equipment Trends in the Disposable Hygiene Industry
A Webinar by TASA
The Adhesives and Sealants Association (TASA) is conducting a
webinar on Adhesive Equipment Trends in the Disposable Hygiene
Industry in association with Nordson India Pvt. Ltd. on
22 March 2021 from 5.30-7 PM (IST).
Set to be delivered by Mr. Alan Ramspeck of Nordson Corporation,
U.S.A., the webinar will focus on two topics of interest to the
disposable hygiene industry: Variation Management, and
Melter Fill Automation.
The consequences of process variation in adhesive dispensing
systems will be presented. Though variation is inherent to all
processes, it can be minimized to reduce costs, as well as increase
product quality and production efficiency. Nordson’s pioneering use
of the Measure – Understand – Improve methodology, reveals
opportunities to deploy technology to greatly improve the
performance of production systems.
Melter fill automation has been a topic of keen industry interest in
recent years. It provides a means of ensuring a controlled volume of
adhesive in melt systems at all times. This allows for better
temperature and flow control, prevents contamination of the
adhesive and a safer environment. Nordson has leveraged its fill
competencies to deliver a high-performance system that, when
utilized with free-flowing adhesive, can deliver the needed flexibility
and operational reliability.

About The Adhesives and Sealants Association
The Adhesives and Sealants Association (TASA) was formed in 2010 to cater to the needs of this industry in India. The founding members, along with many other key players in this industry, felt the need to set up an organization that would, from a neutral and not-for-profit platform, look after the larger interests of the industry.
