The Folding Carton Div. of Green Bay Packaging (www.gbp.com) is benefiting from the recent installation of an atmospheric plasma treater from Enercon (www.enerconind.com). The carton converter 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 less costly cold-set adhesives rather than hot-melt

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