Coatings That Help Packaging, Printing and Non-woven Equipment Keep Pace With Aggressive Production Demands

To meet your aggressive production targets against short turnaround times, you need fast, reliable packaging and printing equipment. To this end, we engineered our surface treatments to protect your critical equipment against common industry threats like sticky adhesives, wear, abrasion, corrosion and harsh chemicals.

Whether your goal is around-the-clock automated production, fast lead times, easy changeovers, on-demand labeling or reliable converting of plastic films, our coatings will give your parts and machine surfaces the properties they need to withstand demanding conditions so you can improve your operational efficiency.

Application Examples

Feeder Rollers in Packaging Equipment

Feeder rollers must typically endure strong impacts. Plasmadize, which can be applied either in thick or thin layers, restores worn surfaces and offers exceptional wear and abrasion resistance.

Engineered Coatings Boost Throughput, Solve Problems in Packaging Applications

Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.

Case Studies

High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers

The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
