Application areas for AFS high-performance systems
AFS offers the right equipment for your application.
Corona & ALDYNE<sup>TM</sup>
Corona treatment provides the necessary basis for the further processing of blown-film material. AFS systems are the classic on the blown film extruder and have been covering every need for years, successfully and worldwide.
Extrusion coaters operate at extreme speeds. The corona treatment system must therefore be both reliable and robust. AFS systems show their value.
The increasing use of low-solvent and solvent-free adhesives requires a higher surface energy than in the past. Therefore, the trend towards corona treatment in-line to the laminating process is coming more and more prevalent.
Textiles and non-wovens
Textiles and non-woven materials are commonly printed, sized or impregnated. Corona treatment offers a solution to adhesion problems and against the tendency of wool to felt.
AFS pipe-treatment systems are ideal for the treatment of PE pipes, especially of jacketted pipes for district heating. For foaming the inside must be pretreated. For printing the outside must be treated.
PlasmaJet <sup>®</sup> and PlasMatrix <sup>®</sup>
Indirect plasma surface-treatment
The PlasmaJet<sup>®</sup> systems surface-treat materials using plasma ejected out of nozzles. This also make it possible to treat 3-dimensional objects.
In construction and agriculture
Perforated films have proven to be effective in preventing moisture while still allowing air circulation.
Generators for R&D
Research and development at the limits of feasibility present extreme challenges for precision and flexibility. AFS meets these demands with specially developed generators.
