Outstanding and sustainable performance

Henkel will unveil its new Eticol borax- and zinc-free casein-based labeling adhesives at this year’s Brau Beviale in Nuremberg from November 13 to 15. The innovation is characterized by outstanding bonding power and, with a modified formulation, contributes to improved sustainability performance at bottling plants.

Eticol casein-based adhesives have proven their merit as a flexible bottle labeling solution employing water-based adhesives. The entire Eticol range is defined by exceptionally good bonding behavior on very moist and very cold bottle surfaces. Labels also adhere strongly to the bottle if condensation forms on the glass.

The Eticol product range is available in a number of variants, for example with high wet tack and outstanding ice-water resistance. The adhesives can be used in conjunction with labeling machines without difficulty, even at maximum speeds. Moreover, Eticol products have long exhibited excellent characteristics when the labels are removed in the bottle cleaner and they perform flawlessly in many plants worldwide.

Sustainable performance
The adhesive technology is based on natural polymers that are obtained from the raw material casein. Until now, some Eticol adhesives still contained borax or zinc in quantities far below the strict statutory limit values. The new Eticol products do not contain either of these ingredients at all. This has a positive impact on factors such as the wastewater produced by bottlers as well as the minimum shelf life and quality of the adhesives.

For bottlers, this innovation from Henkel contributes to enhanced sustainability and budget security.

By launching this next generation of labeling adhesives as part of its Eticol product range, Henkel combines innovation with sustainability leadership and continues its dedicated support toward the beverage industry.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
