Soft Close Electrode Assembly Option

Enercon electrode assemblies feature a counter weight which brings the electrode assembly back to the treat position after being retracted or pivoting out of the way of a splice. This protects the electrodes from excessive physical shock which can cause failure. The soft close feature uses a damper to allow for a consistent and gentle…

Improve Print Quality & Productivity by Controlling Substrate Surface Energy

Poor ink adhesion affects print quality, creates downtime, and leads to lost customers. In many cases, the cause is rooted in complications from the substrate surface. The good news is that surface variables can be eliminated with the proper use of a corona treater. A common misunderstanding is that pretreated films eliminate the need for…

Corona Treatment For Extruded Film (Cast & Blown Film)

Most cast and blown film extruding applications are best served with a covered roll surface treater. Enercon offers two types of covered roll systems for extruding applications. Our original covered roll system is designed to meet the needs of the high-performance lines and our new blown film station capably handles the requirements of lower speed…

Purged surface treater safely allows solvent printers to run faster and reduce costs.

Solvent-based printers are recognizing the benefits of surface treating and Enercon has specifically designed a surface treater to meet their solvent printing needs. The system puts quality control in the printers’ hands by ensuring optimal substrate surface energy. Materials with higher surface energy may require a secondary (or “bump”) corona treatment of the substrate to…

Improve Lamination Adhesion with Surface Treating

Printing, Coating, & Laminating Product Image

For many industrial applications, the use of a single ply of a material does not provide all of the critical properties required for the optimal performance of a product. In these cases, a composite of two or more layers of material can provide this required performance. A common method of creating such a composite is…

Improve Ink Printing Adhesion with Surface Treating

Adhesion

The task of optimizing printing adhesion can be difficult, primarily because of the many process variables which require control. The most critical of these parameters are 1) ink chemistry, 2) substrate quality, 3) surface treatment, and 4) ink transfer method. There are six major printing/decorating processes, each distinguished by the method in which ink and…
