Save time and money – with the new KC curtain-coat nozzle from SM Klebetechnik for contactless curtain coating

The KC curtain-coat nozzle is a reliable and user-friendly application head for contactless curtain coating developed by the experts and engineers at SM Klebetechnik that is designed to meet modern requirements in surface coating to optimum effect.

With its central control and material dosage system via the melter, it does not require any drive motors, switching modules, valve terminals or gear pumps. Consequently, acquisition costs are substantially lower and the application head requires significantly less maintenance.
