Adhesive Drying System with Automatic Cartridge Reel Handling
This article describes a system for moving cartridge reels into and out of an
adhesive application station and the subsequent drying of the applied adhesive.
In Fig. 1, the adhesive drying section of the system includes reel carriers 10
mounted on a conveyor 11, all enclosed within a dryer housing 12. The conveyor
11 includes a pulley and belt system which drives the reel carriers 10. A dryer
entrance ramp 13 feeds the cartridges to the reel carriers, and an output ramp 14
removes the reels from the reel carriers 10 at the output of the drying system.
The cartridge reels 16 are carried into the conveying system by a reel holder
15 (Fig. 2). The cartridge reels 16 include a metal disk 17 molded into one of its
flanges. The reel 16 is presented at the holder assembly 15 with the metal disk
17 facing a rotary electromagnet 18. The coil of the electromagnet 18 is
energized to attract the metal disk 17 and to center the reel onto a pin 19. The
reel 16 is then ready for transport between working stations such as for entry into
an adhesive application station (not shown) or the dryer entrance ramp 13 when
the reel is ready for the drying cycle.
If the transport calls for a position at which the reel needs to be rotated, as
shown in Fig. 2, a reel holder actuator 21 moves the entire assembly to a reel
drive clutch 22. A reel drive clutch motor (not shown) rotates the clutch 22 to
thereby rotate the reel 16. As...
