Meech USA (Booth 1111) is hosting previews of its new HyperionTM IonCharge 30 and IonCharge 50 static generators and HyperionTM 929IPS v2 mid-range Pulsed DC Ionizing Bar at ICE USA 2019 (April 9 – 11, Louisville, Kentucky). Due to be officially launched in the second quarter of 2019, these latest innovations from Meech will be joined by the company’s wide range of web cleaning and static control equipment, as well as its industry 4.0 solution, SmartControl.
“ICE has always been a key event in the Meech calendar and we’re delighted to be exhibiting here once again,” says Matt Fyffe, General Manager at Meech USA. “Bringing together a vast audience in the printing, converting and plastics industries, ICE gives Meech the perfect platform to present the latest additions to its well established product ranges.”
The HyperionTM IonCharge 30 and IonCharge 50 are upgrades of Meech’s 992V3 30kV and 50kV generators respectively. Both versatile and technologically advanced, 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,” says Fyffe. “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, HyperionTM 929IPS v2, possesses extremely powerful ionization and provides 50% greater maximum working distance than the previous model. Versatile and simple to install, Meech’s latest static bar has fully adjustable voltage, frequency and balance, making it ideal for usage within a multitude of applications.
Fyffe adds: “The class leading Hyperion 929IPS v2 retains all the features of its predecessor, including Meech’s Ion Current Monitoring technology, which ensures performance is maintained and that local and remote alerts signal when the bar needs to be cleaned.”
The 929 IPS v2 is joined at ICE by Meech’s industry leading HyperionTM static bars: 924IPS, 929IPS and 971IPS. All of these bars, which are suited to short, medium and long range applications respectively, can be controlled via Meech’s latest Industry 4.0 solution, HyperionTM SmartControl.
SmartControl 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. Connected devices can be altered quickly and easily via remote monitoring and control through mobile devices, which allows operators to make alterations and adjustment to up to six static control devices.
“Helping to streamline various operations, automation is becoming increasingly crucial to converters, labelers, packagers and printers alike,” continues Fyffe. “SmartControl is our answer to the need for more control and visibility on production lines. Operators need to understand how its applications are functioning, while making quick and decisive changes wherever and whenever the need is greatest.”
Meech’s comprehensive range of web cleaners is also on display at its stand. The CyCleanTM and ShearCleanTM will be demonstrating their non-contact cleaning capabilities, alongside contact cleaners TakCleanTM and VacCleanTM.
Fyffe concludes: “Our stand demonstrates the large variety of ways Meech can help companies in the converting, printing and plastics industries to improve their productivity, while also tackling issues related to contamination and malfunctioning machinery.
“Our expert staff are on hand to answer any questions and explain how these innovations from Meech can help businesses maintain a profitable operation and reduce wastage in their facilities.”
