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
IT Elite system when running certain types
of polycoated materials:
- Stronger glue flap
- Elimination of
mechanical preparations such as skiving
- 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.
