Ahlbrandt System develops new removable electrode cartridge

Industrial electronics specialist Ahlbrandt System has developed an electrode cartridge, designed to be used with its Corona Narrow Web system, primarily for narrow foil web processing and label printing

The Germany-based firm said that Corona treatment is a process that not only enables the production of coloured chips bags and fruit labels but is also used in the labelling of cosmetics tubes and jars, and is of extreme importance in foil processing and finishing.

However, according to the firm dust and dirt tends to collect inside the treatment system, which, over time, represents a hazard to the functionality of the entire plant, making regular servicing a necessity. When conducting maintenance, many corona plants only allow the removal of the internal electrode cartridge, while any dirt and dust that has collected in the machine remains there.

Ahlbrandt said that the cartridge is normally removed by a complex combination of vacuum suction and cleaning, during which time the plant is unproductive.

The firm said it has developed a new electrode cartridge to solve this problem.

“The Corona Narrow Web is equipped with the ‘Easy Change’ system, in which the electrode cartridge, that safely encapsulates any dirt and dust, can be removed together with the suction pipe. All the dirt can simply be emptied out and the cartridge replaced,” said Ahlbrandt System product manager Alexander Rau.

In a statement, the firm added: “The electrodes in the cartridge can be replaced just as quickly, and require only a few turns to remove. This means that the system can be serviced in less than three minutes, and there are no extended stoppage times. “
