Explaining his Company’s decision to develop and launch the C8, Vetaphone CEO Frank Eisby stated: “Converters’ needs for simple Corona treatment are well catered for. We have designed the new C8 for the increasing number of demanding applications. Many of the new substrates have a more complex chemistry and consequently require higher power Corona treatment to achieve the necessary Dyne level. The C8 applies more Corona power per square metre on the modern presses that are adapted to run these challenging materials.”
Having eight electrodes in the unit means the C8 can apply high power Corona at high running speeds. Available in web widths from 362mm (14.25”) to 572mm (22.5”) and capable of treating at speeds in excess of 300m/min (985ft/min), the new C8 Corona Treater, which is both CE and UL approved, has already found a market in the digital printing sector, where its compact efficiency is adding to productivity.
