Automatic Cold Glue Guns

Used throughout the packaging industry to erect and seal cases as well as in palletizing items for shipment, cold glue is a water-based adhesive that offers excellent bonding properties. Automatic cold glue gun applications are also commonly used by companies involved in mailing and labeling, in woodworking and cabinet-building activities, and are also used in converting applications where two substrates are bonded to create a single substrate.

Unlike manual cold glue applicators that offer imprecise, inconsistent amounts and patterns of adhesive, automatic cold glue guns allow companies to enjoy all of the benefits of a water-based adhesive along with the uniformity provided by an automated application system.

The Benefits of Automatic Cold Glue Guns
Automatic cold glue guns have a variety of benefits, including:

  • Speed: Although cold glue has a longer set time, cold glue equipment is actually able to cycle at high speeds with accuracy.
  • Accuracy: Automatic cold glue guns offer good pattern accuracy in application, allowing them to be used in a variety of assembly tasks.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Compared to the costs of hot melt consumables, the water-based adhesive used in automatic cold glue gun equipment is considerably less expensive, sometimes cutting consumable costs by 50 percent. Additionally, automatic cold glue gun equipment is similarly priced at a reasonable amount.
  • Suitability for porous substrates: Perfect for porous substrates like paper or wood, cold glue leaches into the substrates, causing the bond to go beyond the surface without creating a bond line that may detract from the look of the finished product.
  • Ease of maintenance: These adhesives are soluble in water. This makes for easy clean up.
