Speeding Production

Green Bay Packaging’s folding carton division installs Enercon plasma treatment system to improve folder gluer productivity.



Green Bay Packaging’s Folding Carton Division is benefiting from its recent installation of an atmospheric plasma treater from Enercon Industries Corp.

Green Bay Packaging identifies four significant benefits from using Enercon’ s Dyne-A-MiteTM IT Elite system when running certain types of polycoated materials:
  1. Stronger glue flap bonds
  2. Increased production speeds
  3. Elimination of mechanical preparations such as skiving
  4. Ability to use cold set adhesives rather than hot-melt (cold set is generally less expensive and allows for quicker make readies)
“Previously, folder gluer press speeds were limited by glue application speed and dwell time,” said Green Bay Packaging Plant Engineering Manager Tom Vogel. “With atmospheric plasma surface treatment press speeds can be significantly increased while maintaining and even improving quality.”

The Dyne-A-Mite IT Elite provides tremendous flexibility featuring four treatment heads, an advanced touch screen interface and portable design.
