Attractive packaging is good – attractive and efficient is better.

packaging industry

Good packaging is important. It protects the product and promotes sales. In order to present the product in an appealing manner, companies are often forced to spend more on the packaging than on the product itself. The question is therefore understandably: How can costs be reduced by improving packaging processes without having to reduce the quality of the packaging itself? Our answer:

  • By preventing malfunctions and machine downtime caused by residue on the components from the product, foil and adhesive.
  • By designing surfaces of wearing parts so they do not need to be replaced as frequently.
  • By increasing machine speeds through lower frictional resistance.
  • By reducing sticking and deceleration of product material in chutes, hoppers, tubs and scale trays so that precise net weights can be maintained without 'loss reserves.'
  • By reducing cleaning and downtime with surfaces that are easy to clean.

Applications

In the packaging industry, processes must run as quickly as possible with minimal malfunctioning. The quality of the coating often makes the crucial difference.

Cardboard packaging production (slide coating)

Cardboard packaging production

Cardboard packaging is made by punching out the desired cardboard shape, applying adhesive to the edges, then moving the cardboard along a conveyor system for further processing. The cardboard frequently gets caught on the dull metal rail of the conveyor. The problem is amplified as remnants from punching and adhesive residue accumulate.

Frequent machine stops, long cleaning times

To avoid having to stop production too often, the machine operator has to clean the equipment constantly, which slows down production. Valuable production time is lost and fewer boxes are made.

PlasmaCoat®

Coating the transport rails with PlasmaCoat® significantly increases the speed of production. The improved sliding properties allow the cardboard to glide along the rails without getting caught.

Increased efficiency, fewer machine stops

The machines no longer have to be stopped, constant cleaning is no longer required, production costs are reduced.

Wear-resistant combination coatings

The PlasmaCoat® coating procedure combines the outstanding surface hardness and wear resistance of thermally sprayed metal or ceramic coatings with the nonstick and sliding properties of polymers and fluoropolymers.

PlasmaCoat® combination coatings also offer very good traction properties with various degrees of surface roughnes and profiles. An embedded metal or ceramic coating can be used as a substrate for the coating that protects from wear.

Coating thicknesses: 80 µm to 295 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +270 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): 1.5 µm to 17.5 µm
Surface hardness: 28 to 70 HRc
FDA approved: yes, with certain coating types

Severe abrasion, risk of clumping

Prevention of sticking and clumping, as well as protection from wear.

PlasmaCoat®

With PlasmaCoat®, the duckbill loaders take on excellent nonstick properties and very good resistance to wear and impact. Powder deposits are prevented and filling takes place without clumping or adhesion to the side walls.

Improved processes, increased efficiency

Cleaning and maintenance time is reduced, production interruptions are prevented.
