Hot melts hardening by cooling and form an adequate adhesion to bonded parts only within a special range of temperature. Due to this fact, temperatures and temperature profiles have a deep impact during processing. Experiments of application of hot melts were conducted within a research project of the University of Applied Science Lippe and Hçxter and Institut fbr Werkzeugmaschinen und Fertigungstechnik (IWF) of Technische
UniversitUt Braunschweig. Temperatures were recorded online at different positions
during experiments at a profile wrapping machine. The empiric, determined data are compared with analytical calculations and hence, a model of the temperature distribution is introduced. A good correlation of analytics and empiricism is detected. Throughout processing the empiric, analytical process model should be applicable to predict process conditions and finally prevent ultimate states.
