AST Charging Station
The AST 60 charging station is a non-contact system which guarantees a secure fix between materials in preparation for lamination. The high efficiency of our system and our experience in the field of electrostatics over a number of decades is our basis for the designing of proficient solutions to individual customer problems. The world’s largest manufacturers of short cycle laminating presses are long time users of AST systems due to the positive benefits which they bring to their products.
Non-contact, tape free, automatic roll changing system, suitable for all winding machines
This innovative process was developed to facilitate the automatic changing of rolls in winding applications without the need for costly adhesive materials (tapes, etc.). The web is fixed to the core electrostatically during the cutting operation.
Following the successful transfer of the web to the new reel, the charging unit is deactivated and, if fitted, the discharge bar is switched on. The system can be supplied with either standard charge bars or with the maintenance free, air-assisted ESA1000 charge bar, designed to resist dirt contamination.
