Meech to highlight the importance of contamination removal at E-TECH EUROPE 2024

Meech is exhibiting at E-TECH EUROPE 2024, 7th to 8th May at The Bologna Exhibition Centre, in partnership with its Italian distributor, AIREX.

Meech is exhibiting at E-TECH EUROPE 2024, 7th to 8th May at The Bologna Exhibition Centre, in partnership with its Italian distributor, AIREX. Specialising in electro-static control and surface contamination removal, Meech and AIREX offer market leading products and technical support to machinery builders and battery manufacturers.

Static Control and surface cleaning are critical in the battery manufacturing process for the removal of contamination to ensure optimum, high-quality output. Meech offers a dedicated approach to surface contamination and static charge removal with a range of solutions, tailored to the battery manufacturing industry, which can be matched to the material, process, and contamination type.

Meech products on display at E-TECH EUROPE include:


Unlike other brush cleaning web cleaners on the market, RoClean combines dynamic air flows and a high precision rotating brush technology. The battery web passes through an ionisation cloud on entrance and exit, while the brush rotates in the opposite direction to the web or electrode sheets for thorough disruption of unbonded and semi-bonded contamination particles. Contaminants are drawn into the vacuum chamber, while the positive air flow not only disrupts contamination on the web, but it also ensures that any contamination left on the brush is also blown towards the vacuum chamber.

CyClean R

CyClean-R uses carefully balanced, powerful air flows to thoroughly clean sensitive, low-tension web surfaces.

Ideal for use in a wide variety of applications, including narrow, mid and wide web, CyClean-R is available as a single-sided and double-sided web cleaner. From its position on the web roller, it delivers optimal, consistent removal of dry, unbonded contamination from any web material (particle removal to 0.5 micron is achievable).

Air Handling Units (AHUv3 Range)

The Meech AHUv3 range is integral to the CyClean-R™ and RoClean™ specialised surface cleaners. The AHUv3 provides positive and vacuum pressure airflows and houses the system filter bag and optional HEPA filter, which is particularly important when working in a cleanroom. It can be operated independently or integrated into the production controls. It is of robust design and requires minimal maintenance.

SmartControl Touch

SmartControl Touch harnesses the power of Industry 4.0 within scaled-up battery manufacturing applications by connecting multiple ionisation bars and sensors for advanced monitoring and control. By combining devices, it creates a single control system for static control offering improved productivity, quality and safety assurance. The unit allows users to monitor, control and adjust the performance of multiple connected Hyperion ionising bars and sensors either via an integrated touchscreen, or remotely via a mobile phone, tablet, desktop or PLC.

Hyperion Feedback Sensor

Meech’s Hyperion Feedback Sensor introduces a cutting-edge closed-loop feedback system for static control, auto adjusting the DC ionising bars based on variations in charges detected on the material. This innovative system is achieved by installing the sensor as part of the SmartControl which can accommodate up to 30 sensors/bars combinations forming a comprehensive closed-loop feedback control. The goal is to achieve a perfectly neutral web, even when charges vary due to changes on conditions. This dynamic and responsive process operates in a continuous loop, constantly measuring and fine-tuning to deliver the highest standard of static control for the sensitive battery production processes.

Hyperion bars

Meech’s Hyperion pulsed DC ionising bars, the 924IPSv2, 960IPS, and 971IPS, provide short, medium and long-distance static elimination respectively, meaning there is a solution for every manufacturing environment to ensure fast and hassle-free production.

Ian Atkinson, Sales Director at Meech International comments: “We look forward to showcasing our extensive range of static control and web cleaning solutions at E-TECH EUROPE. This is one of many international battery and fuel cell related exhibitions that Meech is exhibiting at this year, as we continue to become a trusted partner to machinery builders and battery manufacturers for static control and contamination removal around the world.  In partnership with AIREX, we offer Italian customers experienced support in the battery sector.  We have worked on many different battery materials and designs and have a deep understanding of the environment needs – operating in expensive clean and dry room zones. The show provides an ideal platform to demonstrate our expertise and connect with those within the industry.”
