Specialty Folder Gluer Solutions

W. H. Leary offers their flagship Array controller line, leading the folding carton paperboard market in delivering the highest quality product, to the shelf ready fluted board market produced on Specialty Folder Gluers. Leary's fully interactive gluing & quality assurance solution is designed to not only deliver quality boxes to your customers but to also increase throughput and reduce spoilage. Leary's expandable systems are designed to grow with you as your requirements change. Expandable solutions include simple Silicone Release Liner Solutions, additional quality assurance capabilities and more. With the new Monet operating system, even systems with multiple features are easy to use and operate.

Central Control Integrated System

All Leary Array Series controllers offer gluing and quality assurance systems and are designed to be upgradeable to expand as your needs change. This expandability is available throughout the entire range and includes our entry-level 1D barcode reading systems, which can be upgraded to include a wide range of quality assurance and glue application controls at any time in the future. Everything is controlled from a single central unit, with up to three user-friendly interfaces to allow quick make-readies and simple adjustments.

High Speed Gluing

Leary offers a complete range of hot melt and cold glue high speed gluing systems. Our Quantum high speed cold glue valves eliminate problems caused with tailing and their two-piece valve design makes for reduced cleanup times and simplified changeovers. The Quantum's heavy-duty guides aid in longevity and performance with additional dual mounting options for optimal adhesive application at speeds up to 325 m/min (100,000 boxes per hour).

Quality Assurance

Leary offers a variety of quality assurance solutions to guarantee your high-quality, graphic, corrugated retail packaging is shelf ready, guaranteeing your customer's quality. Choose from glue detection, barcode reading, 2D code reading, dropped flaps or print inspection working in conjunction with SureSCAN Technology. This technology accounts for every single product as it enters, travels through and leaves the production line. At any point in time, SecureScan knows the exact location of every product, the product dimensions, rate of speed, which quality stations have scanned the product and how many others are due to scan it before it leaves the line, so that every product receives 100% inspection.

Reliable Box Removal

Leary's range of controllers can activate any existing OEM rejection device with all Leary systems shipping with a Bobst CUBE interface, enabling Leary systems to operate Bobst automatic rejection. Fluted board applications that are not compatible with an ejection device can be marked for removal with spray or batch rejection options.

Closed Loop Glue Detection

Our patented On-Target intelligent detection and correction technology automatically keeps the glue line positioned exactly on-target at any speed up to 325 meters per minute. This technology enables ultra-high speed gluing (100,000 boxes/hr) with a gluing valve and is exclusively available from W. H. Leary.

Technologies with you in Mind:

On-Target Glue Detection

Our patented On-Target intelligent detection and correction technology automatically keeps the glue line positioned exactly on-target at any speed up to 325 m/min.

The system works by using a high-speed glue detection head fitted to the glue valve, the information from the glue detector if fed back to the processing unit where the detected glue line (actual) is compared to the programmed glue line (required). Where the glue line is not millimeter perfect the system will adapt and automatically correct the position of the glue.

Using this technology allows our customers to tighten their glue position tolerances tighter than ever before. Traditional glue detection systems have required a +/- tolerance of at least 4mm to protect against excessive ejections and machine stops. This would have a negative effect on efficiency, pattern control & product quality. All these effects act to diminish the value of detection systems.

At high machine speeds any standard glue application system will experience inaccuracies. Outside influences have a greater impact on application position. Viscosity, temperature and airflow around the machine are a few examples of forces beyond the control of the gluing system. These forces are constantly changing making it impossible to compensate for them with traditional gluing systems.

Our technology is patented and unique. It will compensate for any changeable influence whether it be from within the system or from outside. The glue pattern will always remain in the target area. Guaranteed.

Monet Operating System

Monet is the world's first truly dynamic operating software for electronic gluing & quality assurance systems. The system is capable of 'learning' its glue pattern, it is pre-programmed with all the 'standard' folded box designs; it even detects and automatically adjusts glue applications on the run. Monet is designed to save you time & money - it's simple. Monet is standard on all Leary gluing systems.

Leary iQ Data Collection

The Leary's iQSmart Services software allows Leary Array Series systems to send real-time statistical data to a central database. All data contained in the systems' production reports are sent through the iQ network, creating archived data and allowing tracking capabilities for basic or sophisticated production analysis.

Standard production reports such as job tracking, production totals, total waste, down codes and defects are provided through the software. Custom reports may also be generated based on specific plant criteria. Each of the ten default reports can be customized by the click of a mouse, making the program easy to run and eliminating the need for any in-house programming expertise.
