The dielectric prevents short circuits between the high-voltage electrode and counter and ensures that the discharge energy is evenly distributed over the entire width of the electrode. To achieve a homogenous discharge pattern and a high surface treatment quality, the electrodes and the dielectric located between them, are chosen specifically for the treatment process.
From the viewpoint of the user, the main criteria for a high-quality dielectric are reliability, short repair times and low cost. Silicone rubber fulfils these criteria and has become the material of choice all over the world.
The silicone coatings used in Europe today are economical, robust and suitable for highest web speeds. Minor defects in a silicone sleeve can be repaired without removal of the treater roll from the treatment station. Heavily damaged silicone sleeves are quickly and easily replaced at low cost.
SOFTAL offers suitable replacement sleeves for corona stations in all variations.
|Adhesion guaranteed||We are proud of our growing global customer base that includes manufacturers of film production lines, finishers, film producers and research companies.
Naturally, the portfolio of products offered by SOFTAL is just as multi-faceted as our customer base. This is made possible by the modular design of our treatment systems, which allows customer-specific changes and a rapid development of new systems and processes. This ideal starting point allows us to meet customer demands and achieve results. Guaranteed.
|Customer-specific interfaces and solutions||The numerous hardware and software solutions offered by our treatment systems ensure seamless integration into customer-specific systems and processes. Starting from proven standard components, our systems can be modified to suit any material and/or process. We specialize in the surface treatment of your materials - so you can concentrate on your core business.|
|Electrodes||Shape, material and position of the corona electrode assembly, along with the characteristics of the related treater roll, determine the homogeneity and efficiency of the plasma discharge. Constant further development of our electrodes has generated a number of patents, including our Intelliblade™ electrode and our liquid cooled ceramic electrodes, both of which have been tried and tested hundreds of times.number of patents, including our Intelliblade™ electrode and our liquid cooled ceramic electrodes, both of which have been tried and tested hundreds of times.|
