Application towers 

ATN supplies a range of application towers for stationary material application to robot-guided components in semi- or fully automated plants. Their configurations, functions and components can be tailored to your needs and process requirements.

Application towers for plant automation

ATN application towers can be used for application processes such as cleaning, priming and gluing, or a combination of processes. Fully automatic nozzle cleaning can also be incorporated in the process. For some plants and workpieces, an application tower can help simplify the automation and application process.

Cleaning fluid and primer application tower

Our cleaning fluid and primer application tower is specially designed for the pre- and post-treatment of surfaces in preparation for gluing processes. It can be set up for cleaning fluids, activators or primers, and for other materials on request.

ATN’s proven technology is suitable for any cleaning and priming process and can, in some cases, also be combined on a single application tower.

Design and function

  • Material feed through pressure vessel
  • Spray, brush or felt application through spray unit, diaphragm valve or dispenser
  • Purging and cleaning unit for regular cleaning
  • Application unit can be swung back for maintenance work

Optional functions

  • Compensating application unit to allow for component tolerances
  • Combined primer and cleaning head
  • Primer application tower for two primer heads (different base frame)

Glue application towers

We supply a range of glue application towers designed for different bead types, single or multiple beads (for large surfaces) and different application nozzle positions, as well as for adding components such as nozzle cleaning units. The dosing system and application head are positioned on the tower, which can also be fitted with an optional bead monitor.

Our glue application towers can apply one- and two-component materials ranging from low to high viscosity. The only aspect of the tower influenced by material properties is the positioning of the application nozzle.
