Web contamination on printing, coating and slitting machines

The Proact web cleaning system has been designed and manufactured for maximum cleaning efficiency with a minimum maintenance.

The web cleaning system removes contamination particles from your process which reduces customer returns/rejects and creates higher profit for you.

The web cleaner is a revolutionary approach to cleaning webs. It combines high powered anti-static bars, a powerful air jet bar and high-pressure vacuum slot in one compact unit.

Contamination of the web is mostly caused by static electricity that attracts factory dust particles to the web like a magnet. The majority of substrate reels used will also have slitting dust and particles trapped between the layers.

Web Cleaning System operation

  1. The Proact web cleaner first removes the static charge with a high powered anti-static bar and by eliminating static, breaks the bond attracting debris, dust and particles to the web.
  2. The second stage is the vacuum extraction slot where negative air pressure removes all unwanted debris and particles off the web.
  3. The third stage is the air jet bar which produces an invisible wall (blade to web) which blocks any particles passing by. The air jet bar also creates a positive air pressure that scrubs the web of any stubborn debris pushing it into the negative air pressure at the vacuum extraction slot.

Non-contact Web Cleaning advantages

  • No substrate scratching
  • No change to web tension
  • No change to substrate surface tension, rubbing off your treatment
  • No static generation from contact friction
  • No expensive consumables (such as adhesive sheets)

For machines with:

  • Web widths: 150 – 2500 mm
  • Line speeds: up to 250 mpm
  • Web contamination from 1 micron to 2 mm in size
  • Low migration inks
