At Labelexpo Europe 2019, Meech International (stand 6C34) will be presenting its latest technological developments to support label production, including CyClean R, Hyperion IonCharge 50-75w and IonCharge 30, and the Hyperion 960IPS. Meech will also show its other static control and web cleaning products.
‘Labelexpo is a major event in Meech’s calendar – it provides the perfect platform for us to demonstrate how our products prevent problems and improve productivity within label production,’ said Ralph Simon, sales director at Meech International. ‘We’re delighted to be presenting four new products this year, each of which has been designed following close consultation with our customers within the labelling and packaging industry.’
An enhanced version of Meech’s original CyClean, CyClean R is a single or double-sided non-contact web cleaner that uses positive and negative airflows to clean low-tension webs. It is claimed to be ideal for wider webs where lower tensions are commonplace. It is compact and capable of handling high speed webs while using low levels of air consumption. Meech’s 924IPS bars are also installed as a part of the system.
‘CyClean R possesses all the qualities of our original CyClean,’ continued Simon. ‘It has a compact design, making it suitable for use in tight spaces and can be used on narrow webs of up to 700mm.’
The Hyperion IonCharge 30 and IonCharge 50 are upgrades of Meech’s 992V3 30kV and 50kV generators respectively. IonCharge 30 is compact and simple to install, while IonCharge 50 is Meech’s most powerful static generator. Combined with Meech’s range of static generator bars and pinning heads, these new generators are suitable for use within a range of applications that require temporary bonding of materials.
‘Via their advanced controls, these generators deliver excellent performance, reliable connectivity and ease of use,’ said Simon. ‘They are compatible with existing PLC networks and their touch screen interfaces allow for the monitoring and alteration of their performance.’
Meech’s new mid-range Pulsed DC Ionizing Bar, Hyperion 960IPS, possesses powerful ionization of up to 15kV and provides 50 percent greater maximum working distance than the 929IPS ionizing bar. Versatile and simple to install, the 960IPS has fully adjustable voltage, frequency and balance, making it suited to use within a wide range of applications.
‘The Hyperion 960IPS, while more advanced in its ionization and working distance than its predecessor, retains all the key features that made the 929IPS such a success,’ said Simon. ‘Meech’s Ion Current Monitoring technology is incorporated, ensuring performance is maintained and that local and remote alerts signal when the bar needs to be cleaned.’
Meech’s long-standing range of Hyperion products will also be on display, including Hyperion static bars 924IPS, 929IPS and 971IPS, which are suited to short, medium and long-range applications respectively. All of these bars can be controlled via Meech’s answer to Industry 4.0 – the Hyperion SmartControl. This automation device gives operators access to static bar performance information on a fixed or remote device and enables them to adjust the operating settings to achieve maximum productivity and maximum quality of output.
Meech’s range of web cleaners are also on display at its stand. The CyClean and ShearClean will demonstrate their non-contact cleaning capabilities, alongside contact cleaners TakClean and VacClean.
