Matt Fyffe, general manager at Meech Static Eliminators, says, "Labelexpo Americas provides Meech with the perfect platform to highlight the ways in which our technologies can improve product quality in the labeling and flexible packaging markets.
"We strive to develop products that suit our customers' needs. Our range of static elimination, static generation and web cleaning technology that is present at Labelexpo Americas is testament to this and we're excited to be showcasing a new product alongside them: the Hyperion SmartControl."
The SmartControl has been developed to allow easy communication between connected Meech ionizers though either a LAN or WAN network. Through the SmartControl, connected Meech Hyperion equipment is able to be adjusted quickly and remotely through a single online platform, reducing the need to monitor static control issues on site. Only one SmartControl is needed for the central control of up to six Hyperion ionizers, with expansion kits available where more devices are needed to be monitored.
"Using the Hyperion SmartControl, operators of Hyperion equipment can access their static bar performance information on a remote device and adjust the operating settings to achieve maximum productivity and quality output," adds Fyffe.
Comprising the 929IPS, 924IPS and 971IPS, Meech's Hyperion range of ionizing bars are also on display. Providing mid-range ionization, the 929IPS bar offers powerful static control, while the 924IPS short-range bar is one of the most compact pulsed ionizing bars on the market. The Hyperion range's bars come equipped with default settings that allow quick and easy installation for use on converting lines. Showcased alongside them is Meech's Hyperion 971IPS-15 and 971IPS-30 bars, designed for even longer ionization ranges.
The 971IPS-15 offers ease of installation and eliminates the need for high voltage cabling, while the 971IPS-30, the most powerful ionizing bar in the Meech range, is for extra-long range applications (operating distance of 450 to 1500mm).
Rounding off Meech's anti-static bar solutions at Labelexpo is the 924. A highly effective short-range ionizing bar used on web paths on converting machinery or printing presses, this Pulsed DC ionizing bar's compact and lightweight size offers ease of installation and reliable static control between each pass.
Also on the stand is Meech's Hyperion 233v4 Pulsed DC Controller. Suitable for use in a wide variety of sectors, the 233v4 is a compact and powerful controller that includes Meech's ion current monitoring. This allows greater control of the ionization performance of up to two Meech pulsed DC ionizers. Offering flexibility and a maximum output voltage of 15kV, the 233v4 is suitable to use in a wide range of applications
Representing Meech's web cleaning technology is the non-contact web cleaning system, CyClean. Compact, with optimized cleaning efficiency, the CyClean is capable of removing contamination to below 1 micron. Best suited for high speed presses, it can handle virtually any substrate, providing a future proof solution to the labeling industry.
For the in-mold labelling market, Meech presents its 994CG. A lightweight, compact static generator developed to fit on the end of a robot arm, the 994CG is designed for use with Meech's Hydra in-mold labeling pinning system and features 4 x 25kV outlets without the need for a splitter.
Fyffe concludes, "Our extensive and comprehensive range of products present at Labelexpo allows us to demonstrate how Meech can be of help to companies in the labeling market. Whether it's static removal or generation, web cleaning or in-mold labeling, guests interested in our solutions can see equipment in action on our stand and have their questions answered by our team."
