Green Bay Packaging’s Folding Carton Division installs Enercon Plasma Treatment System to Improve Folder Gluer Productivity
Release date: 1/6/2010
MENOMONEE FALLS, WI – Enercon Industries Corporation is pleased to announce Green Bay Packaging’s Folding Carton Division (De Pere, WI) is benefiting from their recent installation of an Enercon atmospheric plasma treater.
Green Bay Packaging identifies four significant benefits from using Enercon’s Dyne-A-Mite™ IT Elite system when running certain types of polycoated materials:
- Stronger glue flap bonds
- Increased production speeds
- 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)
Green Bay Packaging’s Plant Engineering Manager, Tom Vogel says, “Previously, folder gluer press speeds were limited by glue application speed and dwell time. 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.
Enercon Industries Corporation, headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI, is a major manufacturer of equipment for the plastics, converting and packaging industries. The company supplies custom built corona and atmospheric plasma treating systems, as well as induction cap sealing systems.
