Vetaphone, a manufacturer of corona and plasma surface treatment technology, has added a web cleaner to its portfolio of products for narrow web converters. The new unit, which can be single- or double-sided, is available in four standard web widths from 350mm to 570mm and has a maximum web-driven operational speed of 820 feet per minute.

The intelligent design and use of high-quality elastomer cleaner rolls and perforated adhesive rolls removes all contamination. The side access facilitates quick removal of used roll sheets, while the top opening gives access for web threading and cleaning of the elastomer rolls.  The adhesive roll has a quick-release device that allows a tool-free change, and the cartridges have a self-locking system to prevent movement during operation.

The web cleaner is designed for flexibility, and can be mounted in various locations to suit any press configuration and web orientation. The cleaner can be linked to Vetaphone’s iCorona Generator, which eliminates the need for any additional operating system. This means that one screen provides all the information required for both web cleaning and surface treatment.
