Baumer hhs unveils the MLT-STA as an entry-level solution for cost-efficiently controlling glue application on flexo folder gluers. The MLT-STA was engineered for manufacturers of corrugated box packaging who until now have gone without monitoring glue application. The MLT-STA works in combination with any existing glue extrusion system available on the market. “Worldwide, a lot of the older flexo folder gluers in particular are still equipped with capacitive sensors for glue or moisture  detection. These devices are very sensitive to the fluctuating moisture content in the corrugated board, which is why they tend to operate unreliably and therefore are not really suited to processing corrugated boxes," says Andreas Schneiders, technical sales manager corrugated at Baumer hhs.
