Offering solutions through intelliCURE means that as well as supplying the actual adhesives, AkzoNobel can also provide the machinery – which dispenses the product onto the wooden parts being bonded – and the software – which dynamically optimizes the amount being applied. The system also logs every process parameter during bonding for quality assurance.
The latest in a series of digital innovations from AkzoNobel, the innovative offering means customers can reduce the total cost of ownership while achieving more sustainable results.
“IntelliCURE is a logical next step,” continues Parker, who adds that the system is currently available in Europe. “It’s a flexible solution which helps customers to run their lines as efficiently as possible – thereby making them more competitive in the marketplace. The beauty of the system is that customers can pick and choose. They can use it all, or just parts of it, depending on their individual needs.”
AkzoNobel supplies a wide range of wood adhesives used in the building products, flooring and furniture industries. For more information, visit www.akzonobel.com/adhesives.
