Foot pedal systems are easy to operate and reduce worker fatigue. We have put together our favorite foot pedal systems below for those of you ready to take the next step in production. All of the options below have their benefits and drawbacks. If you aren't sure which system is the right for your application contact us.
One of the nice things about this system is you can buy it piece by piece. A lot of customer start off with the TEC 6100 or TEC 7100 glue gun, then later add the bench mount foot pedal system and followed by the shot timer kit. That way you don't have to spend over $1400 all at once. This is a great option for companies looking for a glue gun that will stay relevant even with an increase in demand. The shot timer isn't needed to use the bench mount kit, but allows the operator to have the exact same amount dispensed each time.
Option 2: 3M Polygun PG II Glue Gun
This pneumatic glue gun has been around 20 plus years. Talk about a legend, we love this pneumatic power house. We can't say enough good things about it. The only problem we have is it has a hefty price tag, but then again these glue guns are built to last. Plus, an added bonus is that spare parts are available if need be. Like the TEC 6100/7100 you can buy this piece by piece to upgrade gradually. The PG II glue gun with bench mount kit and foot pedal assembly ends up costing over $2500.
Option 3: Surebonder 753 Pneumatic Desktop System
This is by far our most popular system when it comes to foot pedal dispensing. This unit is great because it has both a foot pedal and shot timer. This pneumatic desktop applicator has an adjustable temperature, air pressure regulator and a 2 pound hot melt tank. Not to mention, it's a great value at $1,440. What's the best part about the Surebonder 753? It uses bulk hot melt, which gives you additional cost savings.
