The Importance of Using Aluminum for Manifolds

Universal Systems SE manufactures high quality hot melt application manifolds that will work with most all hot melt application systems. We understand the importance of durability, consistency and effectiveness in packaging manufacturing, which is why we use 6061T aluminum when making all of our manifolds.

What is a Manifold?

When evaluating what you need for your hot melt application system, it is important to understand each item that makes up the application gun. The manifold is the aluminum gun body, that houses the heater & sensor, and is where the modules mount.

Why do we use Aluminum?

Aluminum is used on all of our hot melt applicator manifolds because it is an excellent conductor of heat and dissipates heat very efficiently. Aluminum also has a very high strength to weight ratio, meaning that although it is light-weight, it is extremely strong. Its strength is what allows for peak performance during the rigorous packaging process.  It is also non-toxic, cannot burn and is easily recyclable.

Why do we use 6061T Aluminum?

All of Universal System’s ProBilt™ manifolds are manufactured using 6061T aluminum. 6061T aluminum is aviation aluminum and used for the building of all jet aircrafts. This will extend the lifespan and durability of the manifold and increase it’s on the floor performance.

A Class Above the Rest

There are five main components that should go into your search for the right hot melt equipment manufacturer: Innovation, Knowledge, Quality, Price & Compatibility. Universal Systems SE has made it our top priority, over the last four decades, to ensure our customers get all of these. We do not compromise price for service and we stand behind all of our equipment with the strongest warranty program in the industry.

Innovation

Universal Systems SE has just launched our latest product in the ProBilt Series: The ProBilt Phoneix. This on-demand melter system allows packagers to melt and use adhesive only when they need it. The adhesive storage container eliminates the need to manually fill the melter tank, reducing adhesive spillage and waste, while improving safety. Our state of the art adhesive sensor and innovative vacuum technology will automatically fill your tank with adhesive to your desired level.

Universal Systems SE also manufactures 8 lb., 12 lb., 15 lb., 20 lb. and 40 lb. tanks that are the same footprint as most Nordson melters on the market. Our ProBilt systems continue to lead the industry with minimal down-time, easy to operate components and consumer flexibility.

Knowledge

When researching manufacturers to partner with, knowledge and availability are key. Our technicians have over 40 years’ experience in the hot melt industry and can help solve almost every issue you might run in to, because we have seen it all! Universal Systems SE’s facility is located in the United States and we are available for service calls, even if it’s a video conference to walk through any issues you might be experiencing.

Warranty, Price, Compatibility

We stand behind all of our products 100%, which is why we offer the longest warranty in the industry on our ProBilt tanks, 10 years! Also, if you find a cheaper rate from another direct manufacturer, which we are confident you won’t, we will match that price! Whether the pricing is from Nordson, Graco, ITW Dynatec or Robatech. We also ensure that almost all of our equipment is Nordson compatible. This means that even if you bought your main hot melt machine from Nordson you don’t have to stay with them forever. Even if your Nordson melter has been discontinued, such as the 2300 or 300 Series, you can still buy all of your replacement parts from USSE. We will warranty all parts that you buy from us, even if they are being paired with a competitor part.
