AFS is reliable. Always.
Corona Treatment on Blown Film Lines.
Packaging today is a very complex composite of different materials. They can be laminated, metallised, printed and coated. The requirements of the customers for these packages and the materials are extremely high.
AFS products are the result of mature development processes. More than 30 years of experience flow daily into innovations and high quality standards.
That’s why AFS systems are among the best-selling treatment stations in the world.
Our designers also make complicated customer requests possible. Diverse plant sizes and associated options always offer a tailor-made solution.
Seven different system types cover the blown film line widths, all typical resin types and installation situations are catered for.
From the simple, hand-operated treater station to bus-controlled plant with pressure rollers, drives and water cooled rollers can be integrated into your production line.
Our safety standards are subject to continuous testing. The corona treatment requires high voltage. We have encapsulated all live parts with a completely metal housing. As insulation material we only use glazed ceramics. The electromagnetic radiation remains at the lowest level due to the metallic shielding.
We will only use first class materials in our construction, a critical point for permanent corrosion resistance. With proper maintenance and care our systems are still in operation decades later.
For larger segmented electrodes, a spring loaded retention bar design prevents inactive segments from falling back while keeping the active segments perfectly aligned in their correct position.
Stainless steel shim rings between each electrode key. Allows for ease of movement and prevention of clogging.
3-, 6-, or 9-finger in aluminium or stainless steel and in various widths according to customers wishes.
If a segmented electrode is not required, then a good alternative is our stainless steel tubular electrode with “smart hinge” mounting as also used on Cast Film Lines.
AFS Generatoren für höchste Porduktionssicherheit und Produktivität
Our latest generator technology combines reliability and efficiency with optimal process integration at low operating costs introducing the industry 4.0 standard by allowing for remote maintenance.
Isolated air flow cooling duct for the electronic components avoiding maintenance intensive filter cleaning at our S/SE series.
The new M-Generator series of AFS is built upon a modular approach ensuring your production reliability and sustaining your productivity. The number of modules can be tailored to every application.
A built–in fully automatic system which at low power level, will pulse the generator output to ensure a homogenous corona discharge across the entire width thereby avoiding the risk of patchy treatment.
In areas of high humidity, the problem of condensation forming during any down-time can result in production delays while the station is dried out manually to avoid stoppages due to flash-overs.
The damp start feature gets you back into production faster by burning off this condensation in a very short time enabling production to recommence.
In addition to the standard error message and operator action log in every AFS generator, the look back feature will store all parameters on an internal SD Card with recall and trending features available via the generator display. Additional extensions to the system are a USB download portal or a LAN interface to copy data files for offline storage and viewing.
Corona treatment generates ozone of which the KAT-System eliminates approximately 99%. AFS can supply the right catalyser for every station.
