New automated inline adhesive applicator is applied productivity.

Glue Dots International (GDI), a leading global manufacturer of pressure sensitive adhesive patterns headquartered in New Berlin, WI, introduces its new SD-900 adhesive applicator.

The SD-900 is a fully automated, inline adhesive applicator engineered to quickly, cleanly, and easily apply Glue Dots Brand Adhesives. Competitively priced versus most hot melt systems, the SD-900 reduces your operating and maintenance cost by eliminating waste and cleaning, and increases worker safety by eliminating the risk of burn injuries.

Global director of sales and marketing Jeff Gunderson says: “The SD-900 development was steered by data from existing GDI applications in general packaging, pharmaceutical/nutraceutical, cosmetic and printing industries. This valuable data allowed us to develop a new applicator with improved performance in virtually every category.”


  • engineered for both continuous and intermittent applications;
  • up to 90 feet per minute product speed;
  • feed rate up to 300 applications per minute;
  • four-five strokes per second to apply dots;
  • accuracy of dot placement: +/- 3/32-inch;
  • designed to hold 8,000 count rolls;
  • adjustable dot application via rotary switch.

“One of our main goals in creating the SD-900 was to incorporate application flexibility, eliminating the need for advanced programming or additional engineering. The SD-900 reaches and exceeds that goal,” states GDI industrial applications engineer Reid Moertl.
