SURFACE TREATMENT FOR PLASTIC FILM MANUFACTURERS & FILM EXTRACTION
Plastic film producers manufacture films with tailor-made compositions and characteristics, making them ideally suited for their intended use. Whether utilized as packaging material, surface-finishing film, a laminate layer, or as the foundational product for converters, the film’s surface tension is paramount. It dictates the wettability and printability of a film’s surface. To enhance these characteristics, manufacturers subject freshly produced films to corona treatment, optimizing surface treatment.
Plastic films are produced in vast widths, sometimes exceeding 10 m in the case of BOPP films. Such dimensions necessitate specialized treatment systems capable of consistently delivering high power levels across expansive electrode widths. SOFTAL has specialized in crafting these treatment systems for decades.
Over 50 years of experience are reflected in the construction and manufacturing of our treatment stations, evident in meticulous attention to detail and sophisticated design. One notable example is our patented Intelliblade™ electrode, ensuring a homogeneous discharge and a consistent electrode gap across the entire width, even under high power and heat conditions.
Naturally, maintenance-free operation and professional service are foundational for a brand that has become emblematic of quality, craftsmanship, and reliability.
We are proud of our growing global customer base, which 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, allowing for customer-specific changes and the rapid development of new systems and processes. This ideal starting point enables us to meet customer demands and achieve results. Guaranteed.
SOFTAL has been part of the corona and plasma industry for more than half a century. Our engineers and developers know what really matters at the end of the production day. Factors like easy maintenance and service, low operating costs, long life, and optimum operator safety are considered early in the development process to ensure maximum user-friendliness and uptime.
The numerous hardware and software solutions provided by our treatment systems ensure seamless integration into customer-specific systems and processes. Starting from proven standard components, our systems can be tailored to suit any material and/or process. We specialize in the surface treatment of your materials, so you can focus on your core business.
SOFTAL generators are setting the industry benchmark for efficiency and cost effectiveness. Careful balancing between generator, transformer and treatment station ensure that the system operates at resonance frequency. This means that the treatment system operates at maximum efficiency, keeping the operating costs as low as possible over the entire lifetime.
