Hot Melt Adhesive: The “Secure” Option instead of Staples

Imagine you just bought an expensive piece of furniture that comes in a box closed with staples.  You take it home; as you attempt to carefully pull it out of the box the staples that sealed the box scratch your brand new furniture, or worse yet, scratch you!

This was happening far too often for a local manufacturer in Ohio of high-end outdoor furniture made from poly lumber. The problem was that the staples they used to seal the corrugated cartons were scratching the furniture as a customer would pull the item out of the box.  Additionally, the staples presented a safety risk to their customers because of the exposed sharp edges. 

After researching options to use for better and safer packaging options, the furniture manufacturer gave HAR a call, based on a referral from another one of our clients.

The adhesive specialists from HAR immediately brought in an ITW Dynatec Dynamini™ configured system along with our standard packaging hot melt glue. 

We evaluated their requirements and provided training on the most efficient and effective way to incorporate hot melt into their packaging operation.  We left the system unit there for a one-week extended demonstration and the company carried out numerous performance tests. With every test performed, our configured system combined with our hot melt technology outperformed the staples and held together perfectly with no failures and no damage to the furniture. They bought the entire system and our adhesive the following week. 

The furniture company came to us to help eliminate the possibility of damaging their products and provide safer packaging for their customers. The added bonus is, the manufacturing company also received a hot melt adhesive system that we set up to be safer, faster and easier to operate with no increase in production costs.

 Dynamini™ configured system Hot Melt Glue

The Dynamini™ configured system they purchased consists of a Dynamini™ adhesive supply unit, hot melt adhesive hoses, DGII™ manual applicator and bead nozzle. This system is a small yet mighty workhorse with a melt-on-demand hopper—that means less energy consumption, safer operation, and virtually no adhesive charring or degradation.

Now instead of staple guns, the company uses the DGII™ manual applicators which are safer and easier to operate and allow for better accuracy. Plus our hot melt adhesives costs less per unit over staples which will save the money over the long term!

As you can see, hot melt adhesive is a “secure” option instead of staples because it protects against product damage and allows customers to safely unpack the product. Are looking for ways to improve your packaging operations?
