Emerson & Renwick Chooses Vetaphone

Emerson & Renwick (E&R), a leading manufacturer of production machinery, announced its partnership with Vetaphone, a supplier of Corona and Plasma surface treatment technology. Developed in response to market demand from narrow web converters, Vetaphone’s universal range of web cleaning units are designed to complement the company’s extensive range of Corona treaters.

The intelligent design and use of high-quality elastomer contact cleaner rolls and perforated adhesive rolls reportedly ensures that any dry unattached particle, as small as one-micron, is efficiently removed from the web.

Available for single- or double-sided operation in web widths from 350 – 570 millimeters, the Vetaphone Web Cleaner is simple to service and maintain with the added advantage that its control can be integrated with that of the Vetaphone Corona treater for improved ergonomics.

The scope of E&R technology now spreads across markets as diverse as wallcoverings, heat exchangers, and web coating. Flexo, gravure and screen techniques provide the print capability for wallcoverings, while tube- and fin-forming and assembly facilities cater for the automotive industry’s requirements for heat exchangers.

The web coating division utilizes both vacuum and atmospheric technology for its custom coating lines and it is on the pilot coating line at the company’s HQ in Accrington that Vetaphone has installed a web cleaner.

“We chose to specify a Vetaphone unit for our pilot line because of our longstanding relationship with Vetaphone that has developed through extensive use of their Corona treaters. It seemed sensible to test the web cleaning device initially on our pilot coater that is located within our Technology Centre, so we could monitor its reliability and performance,” said Andrew Jack, sales director, E&R. “It quickly proved to be successful, so we decided to use it on a production coater that is producing touch panel displays, where it is running in combination with a Vetaphone Corona treater.”
