The VECTOR Revolution 180 uses a cartridge and nozzle glue extrusion system which is ideally suited to this contour banding application. The cartridge glue nozzle is a closed system which only heats the glue as it is used. From the heated face of the cartridge until it is extruded onto the banding, the glue is not exposed to the atmosphere, thus there is no burning of the glue or discolouration. The original colour of the glue is maintained as are the glue properties. A further benefit of the glue nozzle system is it’s close proximity to the first pressure roller. This means that even when slowing for corners, the glue remains molten until pressed onto the panel by the first pressure roller. This is particularly important when banding tight radiuses due to the reduced feed speed as the glue does not have an opportunity to chill before being pressed onto the panel.
