The production of cardboard boxes involves punching the unprocessed cardboard into the desired shape. After adhesive has been applied to the edges of the box, it is placed onto a transport device for further processing. Frequently, the cardboard boxes become stuck in the blunt metal rails of the transport device, particularly when there is a buildup of adhesive and residues from the punching process. The result: constant cleaning and reduced production speeds, meaning fewer boxes are produced.
By coating the conveying tracks with our PlasmaCoat® anti-friction coating, the production speed can be increased significantly. Thanks to improved anti-friction properties, the cardboard boxes will no longer get caught in the tracks, meaning the machines don’t need to be stopped and regular cleaning isn’t required. The result? Lower production costs.
