Meech International will be showcasing its recent technological developments at the K Trade Fair (Hall 11 – B60, Messe Düsseldorf, 16th – 23rd October 2019), including the new CyCleanTM R web cleaner, Hyperion IonCharge50 (75W) and IonCharge30 (15W) static generators and the Hyperion 960IPS – Meech’s newest static control bar. Meech will also be displaying its full, long-standing and well established static control and web cleaning product range at the largest exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry.
“K is a huge event in the calendar for Meech,” explains Ralph Simon, Sales Director at Meech Elektrostatik SA. “With so many specialist companies in attendance, the platform the event provides for us is invaluable. We are delighted to be highlighting the role that Meech plays within the plastics and rubber manufacturing industries by presenting both our well established products and the newest additions to our web cleaning and static control ranges.”
Ideal for wider webs where lower tensions are common, Meech’s CyCleanTM R is a single or double-sided non-contact web cleaner that uses positive and negative airflows to clean low-tension plastic webs. “CyCleanTM R possesses all the qualities found in our original CyCleanTM,” continues Simon. “It’s compact, making it suitable for use in tight spaces, and is capable of handling high speed webs up to 800m/min. What’s more, it only requires a low level of air consumption to operate, meaning energy usage is kept to a minimum.”
Meech’s newest static generators – Hyperion IonCharge30 (15W) and IonCharge50 (75W) – are versatile, technologically advanced, compact and simple to install. They are suitable for use within a range of plastic-based applications that require temporary bonding of materials.
IonCharge30 is compact and simple to install, while IonCharge50 is Meech’s most powerful static generator. “They deliver excellent performance, reliable connectivity and ease of use,” says Simon. “They are compatible with existing PLC networks and their touch screen interfaces allow for the monitoring and alteration of their performance.”
Meech’s new mid-range, Pulsed DC Ionising Bar, Hyperion 960IPS, is versatile and simple to install. With adjustable voltage, frequency and balance, the bar possesses extremely powerful ionisation of up to 15kV and provides 50% greater maximum working distance than the popular 929IPS ionising bar, though it retains all the other key features of its predecessor. Meech’s Ion Current Monitoring technology is incorporated, ensuring performance is maintained and that local and remote alerts signal when the bar needs to be cleaned.
“Our newest static control bar is joined by our long-standing Hyperion range, including the short-range 924IPS and long-range 971IPS. All of these bars, suitable for use in a variety of plastic applications that require static elimination, can be controlled via Meech’s Industry 4.0 solution – Hyperion SmartControl – which gives operators access to static bar performance information on a fixed or remote device and enables them to adjust the operating settings to achieve maximum productivity and maximum quality of output.”
Meech’s comprehensive range of web cleaners will also be on display at its stand. The CyCleanTM and ShearCleanTM will be demonstrating their non-contact cleaning capabilities, alongside contact cleaners TakCleanTM and VacCleanTM.
Simon concludes: “Our extensive range of products has been manufactured following close consultation with companies within the plastics manufacturing sector. We invite all those attending K 2019 to visit Meech’s stand and see for themselves how our technology can help them reduce waste and boost productivity.”
