Adhesive application – Case #439

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: the factory was using hot melt adhesive to paste the insocks, but the machine was not set correctly, and a lump of adhesive could be easily felt under the insock, resulting in uncomfortable wearing.

Impactiva solution: we got the machine set correctly and adhesive sprayed in order to avoid clotting, what improved insocks pasting. We also suggested the factory to change the machine and apply the adhesive on the insocks rather than on the outsoles.
