If you’re in the packaging industry or are in the market for hot melt equipment, chances are you’ve come upon hot melt machinery manufacturer Nordson as part of your search. What you may not realize, however, is that just because Nordson is the biggest hot melt machinery supplier, doesn’t mean it is the best choice for you. Let’s take a closer look at why you should explore your options with Glue Machinery Corporation first.
Straightforward features streamline maintenance: If you’ve seen the latest brochure touting the bells and whistles Nordson has added to its equipment, you may be tempted to believe that this new functionality is something that will make your packaging process easier, more efficient, or more cost-effective. Though in reality, many of these features only complicate the process of melting, pumping and extruding the correct amount of hot melt adhesive and increase your overall costs — in addition to making maintenance even more tedious.
At Glue Machinery Corporation, we keep your ongoing and long-term ownership costs in mind. We understand that the simpler the machine is, the fewer maintenance headaches will occur and the lower the overall maintenance costs. We don’t promote rarely used features that may sound snazzy, but offer little or no value. Instead, we focus on manufacturing hot melt equipment that works like it’s supposed to, year after year. In fact, we have machines that are 15 and 20 years old that are still operating in perfect condition, with negligible ongoing maintenance costs.
Same high quality at a better price: When you purchase Nordson equipment, you’re effectively paying a premium for the Nordson name. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re receiving better equipment, performance or service.
Glue Machinery Corporation may not yet be as well known as Nordson, but our product quality, capabilities and durability rival the company, all at a cost of 25 percent to 50 percent less than Nordson’s prices. With such significant cost savings, you can’t afford not to take a closer look at what we have to offer.
Empowered customers avoid service issues: Nordson likes to tout its “local” service that may take days to access as a way of making customers feel more confident that if a problem arises, they’ll be able to reach a local technician and resolve it. That’s great, but wouldn’t it be even better if you could avoid problems altogether, or run and service the equipment yourself? After all, if you’re losing thousands of dollars every hour your line is down, every moment counts.
Glue Machinery Corporation builds hot melt machinery that is intended to be simple to run, maintain and service. Our goal is to provide our customers with the equipment and adhesive that is best for their application, then empower them to quickly solve problems if they arise. Additionally, our support techs are just a call away, and if you need a part we’ll ship it that day, meaning small issues don’t balloon into big problems.
Clearly, Nordson is one of the bigger names when it comes to hot melt machinery, but we firmly believe that bigger isn’t necessarily better. Glue Machinery Corporation’s straightforward features, lower prices and focus on empowering the customer make us a viable alternative to Nordson’s offerings.
