Abstract

Metered application of coating materials, ranging from room temperature to hot melt coatings and adhesives, through the use of fluid-porous roll applicators operating singly or in multiple units for transfer or direct coat­ing, including simultaneous continuous or intermittent patterns and simultaneous different weight pattern coat­ings or different material coatings.

Description

  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to methods of and apparatus for applying or coating fluid materials, includ­ing but not restricted to hot melt type liquids and adhe­sives of a wide variety of viscosities, to surfaces (here­inafter generically referred to as webs), being more par­ticularly directed to such coating with the aid of novel porous roll surfaces and the like.
  • [0002]
    Various types of hot melt and other fluid apparatus and coaters have been heretofore employed to provide con­tinuous, intermittent and patterned coatings upon web sur­faces, including slot nozzle applicators employed with metered pumped fluid supply systems, as described in my earlier U.S. Patents Nos. 3,595,204, and 4,277,301, and commutating cylindrical apparatus as in U.S. Patent No. 3,294,060.
  • [0003]
    Underlying the present invention, however, is the discovery that great flexibility in coating can be obtained through metering the fluid through a porous cylindrical shell or roll, enabling both ready direct and indirect or transfer coating of one or multiple hot melt or room temperature fluids, including hot melts of high viscosity, and with reduced pressure drops over prior art techniques, and in continuous, intermittent or patterned coatings at will.
  • [0004]
    An object of the present invention is to employ the features of this discovery to provide, accordingly, a novel method of and apparatus for fluid application that enables such and other improved operation through the use of porous roll fluid-metering coating.
  • [0005]
    A further object is to provide such a new and improved coating applicator that enables, also, simultan­eous pattern coatings and stripes of different fluid coat weights; continuous, pattern and stripe simultaneous coat­ings of dissimilar fluid coating materials; and successive and superimposed fluid coatings.
  • [0006]
    Other and further objects will be explained herein­after, such being more particularly delineated in the appended claims.
  • [0007]
    In summary, from one of its broad viewpoints, the invention embraces a method of coating a web with fluid material, that comprises, pumping such fluid material with one of continuous and intermittent metered flow along a predetermined longitudinal path, exiting the same at a region transverse thereto, receiving the transversely exited fluid in a reservoir volume extending along and enveloping said path, exiting the fluid from said reser­voir volume through a porous surface co-extensive with and bounding said reservoir volume, relatively rotating the said porous surface and the said region of fluid exiting from said path, and applying the fluid longitudinally exited through the porous surface to said web while moving the web transversely past the same to coat the web with the fluid as metered through the pores of the porous sur­face. In apparatus form, the invention contemplates fluid coating apparatus having, in combination, means for con­tinuously or intermittently pumping the coating fluid along a longitudinally extending conduit terminating in an opening adjusted for transversely exiting the fluid, a cylindrical annular reservoir volume enveloping the con­duit and its opening for receiving the exited fluid, a cylindrical porous shell externally bounding the cylindri­cal reservoir to constitute a fluid dispensing roll, means for relatively rotating the conduit and its fluid exiting opening and the roll to cylindrically distribute the exited fluid along the reservoir volume, and means for rotating said roll and applying the fluid dispensed through the porous shell to web means drawn transversely past the roll. Preferred and best mode embodiments and modifications are hereinafter detailed.
  • [0008]
    The invention will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawings, Figs. 1A and B of which are isometric (exploded) and transverse sectional views of a novel porous roll applicator designed for use in accor­dance with the present invention;
    • Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1A of a modified multiple section porous roll applicator;
    • Figs. 3A and 3B are transverse fragmentary sections, upon an enlarged scale, of standard and differential poro­sity (micron) weight porous shells for the applicator;
    • Figs. 4A and 4B show, respectively, illustrative single and multiple width repeat coating patterns attain­able with apparatus of the type shown in Figs. 1A and 2;
    • Figs. 5A, 5B and 5C are schematic side elevations of typical applicator configurations useful with the invention for transfer, direct and differential or differ­ent material coatings, respectively;
    • Fig. 6 is a more detailed system diagram for such transfer and/or direct coating, suitable for both contin­uous full coating (Fig. 7A) and patterns such as contin­uous longitudinal stripes with intermittent transverse stripes (Fig. 7B).
    • Fig. 8 is a system diagram similar to Fig. 6 of a multiple supply, differential or different material coat­ing system suitable for pattern coatings or intermittent, differential stripe and/or continuous stripe coatings (Fig. 9); and
    • Fig. 10 is a similar system diagram for a modified multiple supply system suitable for full coating of two different materials, such as one over another (Fig. 11).
  • [0009]
    Referring to Figs. 1A and 1B, a preferred porous roll applicator construction is illustrated for contin­uously or intermittently pumping the coating fluid from a single supply port at a rotary joint union 2 along a long­itudinally extending conduit 2ʹ terminating in a trans­versely radially extending opening 2ʺ within a cylindrical inner supply conduit 4 -- the inlet 2ʹ extending pre­ferably axially along the roll 4 and the opening 2ʺ exit­ing fluid transversely therefrom. A coaxial cylindrical annular reservoir cavity or volume 6 envelops the inner roll conduit 4 and receives the exited fluid at 2ʺ. The reservoir volume 4 is coaxially externally bounded by a cylindrical porous shell 8, as of sintered metal, screen­ing or the like, as later more fully described, with the conduit 4 and its fluid exiting opening 2ʺ being relative­ly rotatable to distribute the fluid within and along the reservoir to keep the same filled and applying fluid uni­formly longitudinally along the porous shell 8. The porous shell may, for example, be of uniform sintered metal construction, say 20 micron pores, as in Fig. 3A, or may employ multiple varying or different porosity (and weight) shells as in Fig. 3B, such as a 10 micron outer shell occupying, say, 10% of the total shell thickness, and a 100 micron inner concentrate shell portion of 100 microns, constituting the balance of the shell thickness. The differential micron construction will reduce the pre­ssure drop for high viscosity materials such as 10,000-30,000 cps at room temperature, when metered through the porous metal shell. The outer surface of the porous shell roll 8 may be varied not only in degree of porosity, but also in surface preparation or extent, as at 8ʹ in Fig. 1A, to introduce predetermined patterns in the coating, such as the repeat coating horizontal stripes or longitudinal side stripes and intermittent horizontal stripes of Fig. 4A. The patterns may be metered into the surface of the roll by special etching after the surface pores have been machined closed.
  • [0010]
    While porous sintered metal cylinders have hereto­fore been used for the very different applications of air film as bearing rolls, wicks and filter cartridges and the like, suitable sintered stainless steel, Monel and similar porosities of 10, 20 or 40 microns in shell thickness of the order of 3/8 inch have been successfully employed for this very different usage as a viscous fluid metering coating roll. Among such are the Series 1400 of Mott Metallurgical Corporation of Farmington, Connecticut. This unique usage is more clearly delineated in Figs. 5A and 5B, showing the porous apparatus roll 8 used for transfer and direct coating to moving webs, respectively. In Fig. 5A, the porous roll 8 is rotated in contact with a rubber-coated steel mandrel or similar applicating roll 10 that transfers the coating fluid from the porous dispens­ing roll 8 to the web (so-labelled) as it moves between the roll 10 and the lower laminating roll 12, rotating oppositely to the roll 10. The laminating roll insures positive web contact against the applicating roll for fluid transfer. The porous roll 8 rotates oppositely to the transfer or applicating roll 10 and preferably either with the same surface speed thereof or synchronously therewith, or proportional thereto (including fractional speed). The applicating roll operates at web speed or at a slightly less speed to create a smeared surface. Typi­cal speed can be as low as 95% of web speed. In Fig. 5B, on the other hand, the porous roll 8 itself directly con­tacts the web as the same moves between the roll 8 and an oppositely rotating lower laminating roll 12 which insures positive contact of the web with the porous roll. In such direct coating usage, the porous roll 8 runs synchronous to the web speed for pattern print coating; or at a slightly less speed for full width coating or continuous stripes (longitudinal in web direction) to create a smeared surface. The systems of Figs. 5A and 5B permit full, or continuous, stripe and pattern coatings in single weight coats.
  • [0011]
    A more complete system for that schematically shown in Figs. 5A is shown in Fig. 6 applied to the illustrative example of hot melt adhesives as of the types described in said patents or other well-known coatings of this type, fed from a hopper 1 through a filter 3 to a positive dis­placement metering pump 5 (such as that of said patents) to supply fluid at 7 to a three-way valve 9 (as, for exam­ple, of the type described in my U.S. Patent 4,565,217) that supplies the rotary union inlet 2 of the porous roll system 8. A return feed back to the filter input is shown at 11. The metering pump 5 is controlled by a digital pump drive 13 which is connected to a web reference magne­tic pick up sensor 15 contacting the web to synchronize the pump speed with the web speed. Examples of full or continuous coatings and continuous longitudinal stripe and intermittent horizontal stripe patterns are shown in Figs. 7A and 7B.
  • [0012]
    Multiple width porous roll applicators may also be provided as shown in Fig. 2, illustrating multiple inlet supply ports and rotary union 2, multiple width successive inner supply rolls 4, with successive section separators 4ʹ between adjacent rolls separating the respective succes­sive reservoir cavities and porous roll shell sections. Fig. 4B illustrates typical exemplary multiple width repeat coating patterns.
  • [0013]
    Turning to the before-mentioned flexibility of the invention to enable stripe or other pattern coatings of different coat weights simultaneously or full, stripe or pattern coatings of dissimilar fluid coating materials simultaneously, reference is made to the schematic applica­tion modification of Fig. 5C, dealing with such differen­tial or different material coatings. This design would permit stripes or pattern coatings of different coat weights simultaneously. The combination of two porous rolls permits applying layer upon layer of two identical or dissimilar fluids side by side, or the same fluid applied at different coat weights, to meet a specific customer coating pattern. In Fig. 5C, the porous roll 8 (with a pattern #1, for example) is shown contacting one upper side portion of the oppositely rotating applicator roll 10 between which and the laminating roll 12, the web is moved. A second porous roll 8ʹ (pattern #2 or different coating weight or material, for example) simultaneously contacts the opposite side of the applicator roll 10. The porous rolls 8 and 8ʹ can run synchronously with or at fractional differential speed to the applicating roll 10 which, in turn, may, if desired, run at a fractional differential speed to that of the web.
  • [0014]
    A complete system for such different material or differential operation is shown in Fig. 8, wherein the second porous roll 8ʹ is shown fed from a second positive displacement metering pump 5ʹ, feeding at 7ʹ a second 3-­way valve 9ʹ for inputting the second porous roll assembly 8ʹ, and with a return line 11ʹ to the input of the filter 3. The pump 5 feeding the porous roll 8 is shown as a dual discharge metering pump with supply lines 7 and 7A. Fig. 9 illustrates an exemplary pattern coating of inter­mittent differential weight stripe (supply line 7ʹ -- say, 2 mol coating) and continuous longitudinal side stripes (supply lines 7 and 7A -- say, 1 mil coating).
  • [0015]
    As previously noted, the flexibility of the inven­tion also extends to multiple coatings of two different fluid coating materials, one over the other as in Fig. 11. The system of Fig. 10 enables this with a structure simi­lar to that of Fig. 8, but involving separate material hoppers 1 and 1ʹ and pumps 5 and 5ʹ, as shown for the different fluid materials.
  • [0016]
    The porous roll applicating technique of the inven­tion is useful with room-temperature liquids and with hot melt type liquids, at operating temperatures of 350°F, and fluid coating applications of other temperature ranges. This can be accomplished by installing heating elements within the porous roll assembly, or using the porous metal material 8 as an electrical conductor/resistor, receiving heating current. Typical material used for resistance heat would be Nichrome metal.
  • [0017]
    Industrial applications for hot melt pattern coat­ings are required, for example, in the cigarette indus­try. Typically, the attachment of the filter covering paper, known as tipping paper, joining the filter element to the cigarette, requires parameter/ rectangular adhesive pattern with the center area open, without adhesive. Pre­sent cigarette making machines are operating up to 7,000 cigarettes per minute, which represents the drying limita­ tion of conventional polyvinyl resin adhesive. Any fur­ther increase in line speed prevents succesful adhesive attachment and drying of the cigarette components. Hot melt coating used with the present invention in place of the resin adhesive permits a further increase in produc­tion speed. The hot melt will be applied at a low coating thickness, such as 1 mil, in order to obtain satisfactory bond of the cigarette components.
  • [0018]
    In addition to coatings previously described, the invention is particularly useful with room temperature materials such as silicones, polyvinyl acetates and other adhesive coatings, and with hot melts such as the etholene vinyl package sealing materials.
  • [0019]
    Further modifications will also occur to those skilled in the art, and such are considered to fall with­in the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined in the appended claims.
