Meech International will be at the upcoming K Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, Oct. 19 to 26.

The show will provide Meech with an opportunity to highlight the role it plays in a number of applications within the sector.

“The plastics industry is a key area of interest for Meech, as it offers numerous business opportunities,” says Ralph Simon, area sales manager at Meech Elektrostatik SA. “Since the 2013 edition of the show, we’ve expanded further our technology offering, which we’re confident will successfully tackle the static control issues often encountered in a variety of plastic applications.”

One of these applications is web winding, in which machines are capable of generating large static charges on insulative materials. The presence of these charges can result in incorrect roll tension or lead to the attraction of dust to the plastic web surface, as well as cause electrostatic shocks to operators. These issues can be effectively countered with one of Meech’s Hyperion ionizing bars, removing all traces of static from the substrate’s surface.

“The combination of our innovative technology and industry knowledge places Meech in the position to answer all of the plastic sector’s static control needs,” Simon says. “Our extensive range of systems will be on display at K, which will likely generate significant interest in our product offering and services. We look forward to a very productive show.”
