Surface treatment of BOPP Film
Stretched in machine and transverse directions, BOPP films are high tech products with high quality specifications for stability and transparency as well as sealing and barrier properties. Film widths up to 11 metres and treatment speeds up to 600 m/min place high demands on the corona station with respect to the requirements for power density and robust yet compact construction.
With more than 250 installed corona systems for BOPP lines, and the world’s highest power generators and electrodes, SOFTAL is the market and innovation leader in this field.
SOFTAL corona stations are fitted with the patented Intelliblade™ electrode. The decisive advantage lies in the successful reduction of parasitic surface streamers at the electrode inlet and outlet at higher power density utilising up to 28 blade discharge electrodes.
Using electrode assemblies which pivot away in the web direction is a distinctive feature of SOFTAL corona stations. In the event of a web break the electrodes will move before damage to the electrode occurs.
World´s most powerful corona
The 9100 series presents a new generation of corona generators. These generators are distinguished from others by their multiple parallel switched inverter modules. This innovative design enables generator output power up to 144 kW to be achieved; more than double the current maximum available power. With technology leader SOFTAL as partner, treatment speeds up to 1000 m/min are attainable.
SOFTAL possesses expert Know-How through more than 50 years presence in the market. In our Technology Centre at company headquarters in Hamburg, we plan and develop new technologies to meet your needs.
