A box is made by punching out the desired cardboard shape, applying adhesive to the edges, then moving the cardboard along a conveyor system for further processing. The cardboard frequently get caught on the dull metal rail of the conveyor. The problem is amplified as remnants from punching and adhesive residue accumulate.
The machine operator has to clean the equipment constantly - which slows down production speed - so that production won't have to be stopped too frequently. Valuable production time is lost and fewer boxes are made.
Coating the transport rails with PlasmaCoat® significantly increases the speed of production. The improved sliding properties allow the cardboard to glide along the rails without getting caught.
Constant cleaning is no longer necessary and the production costs drop.
