Solid State KB 30H Melt Units are machines used
for melting and pumping hot melt thermoplastic
adhesives. Melt Units that are specified as H
Models, are designed for use with Slautterback
Automatic Heads and Hot-Melt Supply Hoses. A
Solid State KB Melt Unit consists of a heated
Melt Tank, a motor-driven positive displacement
Gear Pump, an adjustable Pressure & Flow-Control
Valve, and Solid State Temperature Controllers.
A KB 30H Melt Unit is equipped with a 30 lb.
capacity Melt Tank. All KB Melt Units are completely
electric and do not require the use of compressed
air for operation. KB Melt Units are able to
pump a variety of hot melt materials, such as
packaging adhesives, product assembly adhesives,
and thermoplastic potting materials. The Melt
Tank's cylindrical design will accept granular,
flake, or chunk forms of hot-melt adhesives.
A Melt Grid at the bottom of the tank transfers
heat efficiently from the Heaters into the hot-melt
material. The melt tank's temperature is regulated
by a Solid State Temperature Controller located
on the front panel.

solid state, microprocessor based timer is easy
to operate. The user selects one or two dispensing
head groups and adjusts the time event duration
for a glue or gap pattern for this head group.
The event sequence is initiated by an external
trigger. ET-4 will accept up to 4 glue or gap
events per head group. Each event pattern is
switch selected, providing 1 millisecond resolution
and ±0.5 millisecond accuracy and repeatability.
ET-4 also provides input, output and power isolation,
eliminating problems associated with system ground/neutral,
floating voltages and noise triggering.

ET-4 will operate with any Slautterback Applicator
Head. With the use of an external 24 V power
supply, the ET-4 can switch several 24 VDC solenoid
valves. Consequently, the ET-4 can also be used
with Nordson or Graco/LTI products.
Slautterback HD2 Head Driver is a solid state
electronic device which enhances the performance
of Slautterback Electric Applicator Heads to
produce extremely accurate patterns. The HD2
response time increases the opening and closing
speed of the adhesive valve. This translates
into sharper cut-off and increased accuracy of
pattern placement. The speed and precision of
the HD2 is three times greater than conventional
DC drivers. The HD2 can open a single electric
valve in 2 to 3 milliseconds, hold it open for
as few as 1 to 2 milliseconds and allow it to
close in 2 to 3 milliseconds. It can fire one
head or valve module continuously every 10 milliseconds.

Slautterback E100 Automatic Applicator Head is
an electrically actuated and heated valve for
applying hot melt materials. Hot melt materials
are supplied to the E100 Head through a hot melt
supply hose. Valving is accomplished by an electromagnetic
force from a coil, surrounding the valving chamber.
This force activates a spring-loaded plunger
assembly, entirely within the valving chamber.
There are no dynamic seals to wear out, and only
one moving part. The head's interior passageways
are large enough to be used with a variety of
hot melt materials such as packaging adhesives,
product assembly adhesives and thermoplastic
potting materials. These materials can be applied
in various application patterns, determined by
specific electrical signals from control and
timing devices. Electrical power is supplied
to the head through the supply hose to a quick-disconnect
connector, found on the head. The E100 Head also
has a full range of temperature options. The
temperature control component is located inside
the head heater block. The supply hose temperature
is controlled by an adjustable capillary bulb
or a solid state controller, mounted inside the
supply unit. Refer to the supply unit service
manual. The applicator head is designed for ease
