Decorating/Printing: Versatile Corona Treatment System

Said to improve the surface tension on numerous materials resistant to printing, adhesive, and coating processes.

A new, versatile, high-performance corona treatment system from 3DT LLC, Germantown, Wis., is said to improve the surface tension on numerous materials resistant to printing, adhesive, and coating processes. Called the PolyDyne Pro, the unit is engineered with multiple feedback devices for precise performance monitoring.

Features include:

 

  • Universal input that allows operation between 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
  • Remote interface that can be used to enable the generator and set and monitor output power level.
  • Color touchscreen where a user can monitor all system parameters, view the data log, the alarm history and receive troubleshooting help.
  • Programmable for various treatment modes: product sensing, timed, or continuous operation.
  • Convenient data log records operation history to ensure maximum efficiency
  • Compact design allows for easy integration into production lines.

 

The device is reportedly ideal for prepping surfaces for marking and printing applications, such as numerous medical parts, syringes, bottles, respules, vials, surgical instruments, tubing, etc. Additionally, labware such as Petri dishes and multicell wells treated with corona treatment “wet out” for improved cell culture growth.
