Newtown to unveil new range of automated gluing tables at IPEX

26 Sep 2017 Newtown

Newtown is to use IPEX as its platform to unveil its new range of Felix automated XY gluing tables to the print, point of sale and packaging industry.

Newtown has partnered with European company LYNX to bring these machines for the first time the UK market and will be the exclusive agent for the machines. If you’re currently applying hot melt and cold glues by hand to any form of print, point of sale or packaging materials then Newtown can help you reduce costs and speed up your production process!


What is the Felix machine?

The Felix gluer is a state of the art solution for the precise dispensing of both hot melt and cold glues - a CNC controlled glue dispensing machine. The Felix gluer allows you to automatically apply glues to all types of print, packaging and point of sale materials to eliminate the hand gluing production bottleneck faced by these industries. What sets it apart from standard gluers is the ability to simultaneously apply glues to substrates that differ in shape. Glue is applied with high speed and precision; the amount of glue is identical along the entire application length. The work area of the machine is divided into two independent moving work shelves. This facilitates the application of the adhesive to two elements that vary in thickness, at the same time.


Machine Benefits

FAST - The Felix gluer has a rapid glue application speed of up to 2.5 meters per second, this is up to twice as fast as other solutions on the market. Our tests have shown the machine to be up to 150% quicker than applying glues by hand!

USER FRIENDLY – The machine is very user friendly allowing rapid setup times of just a few minutes.

LARGE WORKING AREA – Work table sizes can be made up to 2000mm x 3000mm (smaller options available) making it suitable for a wide range of large print, point of sale and packaging applications.

REDUCE STAFF – Reduce staff by eliminating manual glue application, saving you time and money.

PRECISE – Apply glues with precision to entire lengths or even curves, identical application every time ensures maximum product quality finishing.


A few words from our CEO:

“This new line of glue application machinery is a very exciting product launch for us at IPEX. We’ve already established a strong reputation for our range of double sided tape application machinery and the Felix gluer compliments this very well. I’m confident that the print industry will be blown away with speed, build quality and revolutionary features this new range of glue tables will offer. We’re excited to demonstrate the cost savings the machine can offer for any firms who are currently applying hot melt or cold glues by hand in their finishing process.” – Luke Verrall, CEO of Newtown.
