Gartech now offers a GU3-series Glue Shoe designed to reduce glue starvation and flow-related issues.
A deeper pocket within the Gartech GU3-series Glue Shoe has proven successful on our 4″ and 5″ pattern widths. Now, the design is offered in specific cases where specialty tabs or extra long tabs create issues of glue starvation.
This design increases the individual shoe’s supply with 30% more glue than our angular GU2-series Glue Shoe design; which has proven successful on hundreds of systems.
With 1-1/4″ additional coverage of the Glue Applicator Wheel, more of the shoe’s supply is available. This means a “fresh” covering of glue across more of the wheel surface with no change in the metered glue width.
The GU3-series Glue Shoe is the only component that changes. The same Gartech Glue Wheel, the same Glue Shoe Mounting Plate, and even the same (proper-length) mounting bolt can be used.
