Meech to exhibit static control and web cleaning solutions

Meech International will exhibit at ICE Europe 2015 (10-12 March, Munich Trade Fair Hall A6 Stand 233) where its range of static control and web cleaning solutions will be showcased including two recently introduced enhancements to its static range.

As a well-established supplier to the international converting community Meech understands the challenges that converters of flexible web materials including paper, film, foil and nonwovens face, helping them to maintain efficient, safe and productive manufacturing environments.

This will be the first opportunity for this specialist audience to view Meech’s new distance sensor and feedback system introduced at the end of last year. The 971IPS and 929IPS static control bars, the latest enhancements to the company’s successful Hyperion range are designed to help monitor and control static with greater precision in a variety of applications including packaging and labelling.

“Customer feedback is important to us and this is reflected in the enhancements to our static control range,” says technical director David Rogers. “The converting sector has seen a strong increase in global demand for flexible packaging solutions and as a result plastics is being used more often, increasing the risks of operator shock and contamination. Our systems can reduce or eliminate these risks, leading to much greater operational efficiencies.”

In addition, contact and non-contact web-cleaning solutions, to minimise wastage and achieve higher levels of productivity will also be on show, including the CyClean non-contact web cleaner. A compact, double-sided blow and vacuum-based web cleaning system which flows contaminants into an inline filter unit, the CyClean can clean webs up to 2m in width is capable of removing 0.5 micron contaminants.

“What makes Meech stand out from the competition is that we are the only web cleaning system manufacturer that uses four different technologies for our products,” comments sales director Adam Battrick. “As a result we have a variety of options that can help answer the converting sector’s needs.”

Meech’s alternative non-contact web-cleaning solution is the ShearClean available for web widths of up to 2.1 metres and web speeds up to 450 metres/min. Two choices of contact web-cleaning systems: the TakClean with continuous single or double sided cleaning capabilities and capable of removing particles as small as 0.5 microns; the VacClean is available in two versions (F4 and F5) featuring compact extraction or vacuum fan extraction respectively.
