Green Bay Packaging's Folding Carton Div. Installs Plasma Treater

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI | Enercon Industries Corp. announces Green Bay Packaging's Folding Carton Div. (Depere, WI) is benefiting from its recent installation of an Enercon atmospheric plasma treater.

Green Bay Packaging (GBP) identifies four significant benefits from using the Dyne-A-Mite™ IT Elite system when running certain types of polycoated materials:

  • Stronger glue flap bonds
  • Increased production speeds
  • Elimination of mechanical preparations such as skiving
  • Ability to use cold set adhesives rather than hot-melt (cold set is generally less expensive and allows for quicker make readies)

Tom Vogel, GBP's plant engineering manager, says, “Previously, folder gluer press speeds were limited by glue application speed and dwell time. With atmospheric plasma surface treatment press speeds can be significantly increased while maintaining and even improving quality.”

The Dyne-A-Mite IT Elite is said to provide tremendous flexibility, featuring four treatment heads, an advanced touch screen interface, and portable design.
