Enercon Industries exhibited an array of new and breakthrough surface treating technologies for a variety of applications at ICE USA 2011. Paper, Film, and Foil's editor, Yolanda Simonsis, stopped by the Enercon's booth to interview Tom Gilbertson. Watch this video for a 2 minute review of the exhibit highlights.
New Atmospheric Plasma Solutions
Plasma4™ and Plasma Synergy™
Enercon presented Synergistic Plasma Technique for Achieving Remarkable Surface Adhesion at the ICE USA Conference Sponsored by AIMCAL.
This presentation shared technical data of a new atmospheric plasma process called Plasma Synergy™ which detailed the production of highly stable surface energy which produces significant step changes in peel adhesion strength. The data conclusively shows how this process out performs any existing single step treatment process.
The best features of Enercon’s fourth generation of production class technology are its breakthrough operating benefits. Plasma4™ offers the industry’s lowest gas consumption, eliminates electrode breakage and automatically adjusts treatment air gap.

Enercon is pleased to announce an innovative treatment solution for pattern treating called Air Treat™. Air Treat™ solves many problems for film extruders. Operators can now set treater electrode segments from the operator interface and receive on screen feedback on current segment position. This eliminates the process of manually actuating segmented electrodes on treaters which are often located in difficult to reach places.
With Air Treat™ there’s no second guessing whether your operator correctly positioned the segments for the next job. Jobs will be run correct the first time with the treatment pattern specified and confirmed on the operator panel reducing waste and increasing productivity.
Air Treat™ is available as an option with Enercon’s CSO corona treater which features stainless steel electrodes, several roll covering options and high performance power generation from Enercon’s Compak™ power supply models.
Enercon’s High Definition Corona treater with specially constructed ceramic electrodes has an extremely high dielectric constant and superior capability for high power densities. The system also has a unique ground roll design. Unlike conductive ceramic roll systems, Enercon's design features a proprietary ceramic blend formulation optimized for numerous application challenges. The High Definition corona system provides the industry’s best insurance against film wrinkling, puckering, pinholing and backside treatment. In addition, the system offers flexibility in its ability to treat both conductive and non-conductive films equally well.
Enercon’s Dyne-A-Mite™ IT atmospheric plasma treaters are being utilized for folding carton and window applications. The treater increases folding carton bond strength, enables faster folder gluer speeds, and can reduce cost be enabling the replacement of hot-set glues with cold set. The technology is effective at treating polyboard, specially coated surfaces, and UV lacquered surfaces.
