Nordson offers a variety of adhesive hot melt glue systems to suit your specific manufacturing needs. A comprehensive selection of pumps and hopper sizes, along with a variety of hose gun connections, help you customize a hot melt system that meets your individual requirements. Nordson hot melt glue systems are easy to install, operate and maintain.

MiniBlue® II Long-Life Hot Melt Dispensing Guns

MiniBlue II hot melt glue applicator and adhesive dispenser provide the longest service life of any pneumatic gun in the packaging industry. You will reduce maintenance, downtime and replacement parts costs with MiniBlue II guns. Use MiniBlue II hot melt adhesive applicators with OptiBond™ solutions to reduce adhesive use and reduce material costs up to 50 percent.

Filling Systems

Nordson adhesive fill systems monitor and maintain the optimum adhesive levels in hot melt tanks, hoppers and reservoirs. The sealed melter and auto-feed system relieves operators from continuously refilling melters, minimizes char formation and reduces adhesive contamination from plant debris. Nordson fill systems are available as new integrated tankless systems or as an aftermarket retrofit for most Nordson melters used on packaging lines.


Rugged, durable hot melt and liquid adhesive hoses help reduce operating costs and downtime. Precision fabrication and calibration using the highest quality materials increase glue hose service life in even the most difficult manufacturing environments. Multi-layer construction in hot melt glue hoses improves thermal efficiency and operator safety.

Hot Melt Adhesive Dispensing Systems

Nordson’s adhesive dispensing equipment delivers efficient, versatile hot melt and liquid adhesive application and verification to a wide range of consumer and industrial product manufacturing environments. Whether simple or sophisticated, most applications can optimize adhesive use and improve bonding and sealing performance with Nordson adhesive dispensing equipment, applicators and replacement parts.


Nordson offers a range of bead nozzles with a variety of orifices and engagements. Hot melt nozzles are easily changeable and provide production flexibility. Our adhesive nozzles are made with quality craftsmanship, so glue nozzles can deliver precise adhesive dispensing. Equip your production line with glue applicator nozzles that are easily adaptable for different applications.

Foaming Systems

Adhesive foam dispensing technology combines inert gas with hot melt adhesives and sealants to create closed-cell foam when dispensed. Adhesive volume and weight are reduced by up to 50 percent using Nordson foam dispensing equipment. Improve your material performance and reduce adhesive costs with foam dispensing.

VersaDrum Bulk Melters (Heated)

VersaDrum bulk melters deliver precise application of hot melt adhesives, sealants and butyls. Modular, non-stick platens, available for 200-liter (55-gal) drums, melt adhesive on top surface of drum only, reducing thermal stress and protecting bonding characteristics. Elimination of dead spaces in hydraulic passages makes VersaDrum melters well-suited for reactive adhesives.
