Features to Look For

Individuals researching exceptional hot melt guns should look for ones that possess the following features:

  • Efficient and consistent heating: even melting of the stick or bulk hot melt prevents stringing and allows for proper application
  • Temperature control: enables the operator to maintain consistent production flow and avoid build-up of solidified adhesive
  • Adjustable shot size: ensures the quality application of hot melt and proper bonding without wasting glue
  • Durable construction: allows for years of use on a production line with minimal maintenance

What You Can Expect to Pay

The cost of hot melt glue guns varies according to the type of hot melt adhesive being used and the level of sophistication. For example, Glue Machinery Corporation sells quality hot melt stick guns capable of precise high melt rates and outputs starting at $159.00. Whereas high output bulk systems start at $3195.00 and feature a reservoir, piston pump, and a high-pressure, flexible heated hose connected to a handgun.

What to Look for in a Commercial Hot Glue Gun Supplier

Along with the quality, availability, and price of an industrial hot glue gun, individuals should also examine the supplier. We recommend partnering with a company that does not constantly change its products’ designs and keeps items consistently in stock. When issues arise, a great supplier can quickly deliver a replacement glue gun or parts with a single call or email.
