Lectro Engineering Co. of St. Louis bills its LT Cold Flamer as a replacement for flame treaters for in-line surface treatment of plastics.
The indirect electrode method of surface treating plastics has been used for years, in limited applications. Lectro is moving it into the plastics arena.
Benefits of the Cold Flamer include lower insurance premiums from removal of open flames in plants, elimination of scraped parts, lower utility bills in climate-controlled buildings and quick product changeovers, Lectro said.
Lectro also said its Automation Technology Inc. division is offering its production-line design services to plastics manufacturers.
