Engineered Coatings for Roller Surfaces in Non-Woven Production – Recorded 7.23.2020

WATCH ON-DEMAND HERE

Presenter: William Bradley
Steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber rollers can get expensive when buying new rollers on a regular basis due to damaged roller surfaces.

Join us, Thursday, July 23rd, as we explore how you can save money, keep your existing cores, and reduce or eliminate web defects.

Register today to learn how you can:
– Protect roller surfaces from defects/knife cuts/damage.
– Eliminate scraps due to fiber buildup.
– Reduce cleaning downtime with a “non-stick” surface that still provides optimum traction.
– And so much more that you’ll have to join us to find out!

Eliminating Buildup in Blown Film Manufacturing – Recorded 5.13.2020

Watch ON-DEMAND

Presenter: William Bradley
The Blown Film Industry has evolved over the last several years with increased processing speed, new film substrates, and slip agents that bring unique properties. With these advancements, it is more difficult to control the web, there are increased film defects, and sometimes catastrophic web breaks, digging into your bottom line.

In this webinar, we’ll review the best practices to eliminate downtime and quality issues caused by buildup on rollers and loss of web traction.

Learn about:

  • Advanced polymer technology in dual layer coatings, increasing traction and overall control to your web
  • How to add crowns to existing rollers with engineered coatings, instead of having them ground into the roller
  • “Non-stick” surface of rollers, that reduce and even eliminate build up of debris and slip agents
  • How important it really is for your web to travel at the same speed as your roller
  • How long does a coating last? Why should I invest? What is the payback (ROI)?

Eliminating Buildup in Flexible Packaging Manufacturing – Recorded 4.22.2020

Watch ON-DEMAND

Presenter: William Bradley
Flexible packaging products have evolved over the last several years, introducing new formulations, tighter requirements, and increased FDA regulations. Helping mitigate the production issues these changes are causing is the use of coatings on rollers.

In this webinar, we examine the best practices to eliminate downtime and quality issues caused by buildup on rollers, as well as what options you have based on the products you’re making.

Join us to learn about:
– The latest advances in dual-layer coatings, increasing traction and overall control to your web
– How to add crowns to existing rollers with coatings, instead of having them ground into the roller
– How important it really is for your web to travel at the same speed as your roller
– Advanced polymer technology on dual-layer coatings provide release, but also another key performance factor
– How long coatings last and what’s the typical ROI
