PTi: U.S. Patent for Integral Anti-Static Coating Unit
Processing Technologies International (PTi), Aurora, Ill., USA, has been awarded a U.S. patent for its new integral anti-static coating unit which is incorporated in the frame of the pull roll unit of the G Series roll stand.
The integrated system is more economical, space-efficient, and convenient for operators compared to competitive systems, eliminating the need for a separate anti-static coating unit.
This latest invention is PTi’s fifth patent in connection with its innovative G Series linear bearing mounted roll stand.
The integral anti-static coating unit permits anti-static solutions to be applied to packaging grade sheet prior to thermoforming in order to minimize the static charge in the resulting container, cup, or lid.
