Glue Dots International (GDI), a leading global manufacturer of pressure sensitive adhesive patterns, introduces
the SD-900 adhesive applicator. The SD-900 is a fully automated, inline adhesive applicator engineered to
quickly, cleanly, and easily apply Glue Dots Brand Adhesives. Competitively priced versus most hot melt
systems, the SD-900 reduces your operating and maintenance cost by eliminating waste and cleaning, and
increases worker safety by eliminating the risk of burn injuries.
“The SD-900 development,” according to Global Director of Sales and Marketing, Jeff Gunderson, “was
steered by data from existing GDI applications in General Packaging, Pharmaceutical/Nutraceutical, Cosmetic,
and Printing industries. This valuable data allowed us to develop a new applicator with improved performance
in virtually every category.”
The SD-900 is engineered to seamlessly integrate into both new and existing automated production lines.
Flexible mounting options, including the optional rolling stand, allow the SD-900 to easily adapt to unique
The SD-900 is designed for continuous and intermittent application in both vertical and horizontal orientations.
You never have to worry about complex programming with the SD-900 because automatic speed matching
ensures +/- 3/32 inch dot placement accuracy at a rate of 300 applications per minute. Additionally, the number
and sequence of Glue Dots being applied can be adjusted instantly via rotary switch. “One of our main goals in
creating the SD-900 was to incorporate application flexibility, eliminating the need for advanced programming
or additional engineering. The SD-900 reaches and exceeds that goal.” Reid Moertl, GDI Industrial Applications Engineer.
