A system and method of regulating a pressure of a fluid with a valve block having a valve block inlet in fluid communication with an outlet of an extruder and a valve block outlet in fluid communication with a die. A transducer in fluid communication with the flow channel and in signal communication with a controller of the motor can sense a pressure and communicate the pressure to a controller of a motor. The motor can adjust a position of a valve to regulate the pressure of the fluid.

A contact nozzle (2) for coating an elastic strand (12) with an adhesive (14). Air (18) is discharged at the adhesive (14) in contact with the strand (12), causing the adhesive (14) to spread around the periphery of the strand (12). The air (18) assists with release of the adhesive (14) from the nozzle (2) and also cleans the nozzle (2) to discourage adhesive build-up on the nozzle (2).

A non-contact jetting dispenser, viscous fluid dispensing system and method. The system includes a viscous fluid dispenser for dispensing the viscous fluid. The system further includes a viscous fluid supply container adapted to hold the viscous fluid. A flow path is provided for the viscous fluid between the viscous fluid supply container and an outlet of the viscous fluid dispenser. An electronic flow meter device is used to produce electrical output signals proportional to the flow rate of the fluid flowing through the flow path. A control is operatively coupled to the electronic flow meter for continuously receiving and processing the electrical output signals and performing a responsive control function in a closed loop manner.

A fluid dispensing apparatus includes an actuator body with an actuator and a valve stem coupled for movement with the actuator, and a fluid body having a fluid chamber capable of fluid communication with an outlet. The valve stem is adapted to extend from the actuator body into the fluid chamber for dispensing fluid from the fluid chamber through the outlet. A quick connect member is provided to selectively fully engage and disengage a first coupling element on the actuator body with a second coupling element on the fluid body, to connect and disconnect the actuator body and the fluid body with respect to each other. The quick connect member advantageously connects or disconnects these bodies without requiring disassembly or dismounting of the bodies from other elements associated with the fluid dispensing apparatus, with a simple manual movement such as a sliding linear continuous movement.

An induction heater includes an electrically conductive coil that produces an alternating magnetic field when current is applied to the coil. The magnetic field is used to heat metal containers such as tubular containers. The coil extends about a heating path of travel that extends along the longitudinal axis of the coil. A transport device is provided to move the container through the magnetic field such that the longitudinal axis of the container is generally perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the coil. This allows for heating the container at the twelve and six oclock positions. The transport device functions to roll the container along the heating path. In a preferred embodiment, the coil is wrapped about a core with a generally rectangular shape. Ferromagnetic members may optionally be used to further shape the magnetic field. The methods and apparatus may be used for regular or irregularly shaped containers.

An extrusion die (12) with adjustable land channel can be formed of a die body (20) that includes a first die body portion (20A) and a second die body portion (20B), a first lip body (22A), a second lip body (22B), and a land channel body(26). The extrusion die (12) can have a flow channel that includes a land channel terminating in an outlet orifice. The flow channel may be bound on one side by the first die body portion (20A), the land channel body (26), and the first lip body (22A). The flow channel may be bound on an opposite side by the second die body portion (20B)and the second lip body (22B). In some examples, the length of the land channel is adjustable by configuring the land channel body (26) and/or first lip body (22A, 22B) to move across the width of the flow channel.

A device (10) for coating an exterior of an elongate object (36) includes a housing structure (22) with an elongate chamber (30) having first and second opposite ends. A port communicates with the first end for receiving the elongate object and an outlet is located at the second end. An air supply passage (56) and a coating material supply passage (74) communicate with the elongate chamber via a ring shaped structure (54) causing air to enter the mixing passage (52) with a swirling motion. Pressurized air and coating material are adapted to enter the elongate chamber through the air supply passage and the coating material supply passage, respectively, to form a mist in the elongate chamber moving toward the outlet while coating the exterior of the object. A method of coating an exterior surface of the elongate object with the coating material includes holding the elongate object lengthwise in the elongate chamber, mixing the pressurized air and the coating material to form a mist, and coating the exterior surface while directing the mist around the exterior surface and toward the outlet of the elongate chamber.
