Ceramic Electrode for Conductive Materials
The Intelliblade-C from Softal electronic GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, now additionally provides a dedicated technology for conductive materials. The introduction of the Intelliblade for nonconductive materials had already exerted an enduring influence on pretreatment in electrode manufacture due to great gains in efficiency and substantially higher production reliability. Softal has been recognized for more than 45 years for its know-how in the production of electrodes for corona pretreatment. The further development of the multiblade electrode to the Intelliblade in 2005 allowed the integration of a metal electrode in all corona units which made treatment in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications more efficient by 20%. While for achieving this same result the energy input could be reduced by a fifth, the temperature rise in the electrode was controlled in such a way that sliding discharges are prevented. In this way the risk of damaging sensitive materials was greatly reduced.
Due to the newly unveiled ceramic electrode conductive materials, such as aluminum and metallized films, can be pretreated with exactly the same efficiency. Starting in 2008 this version of the Intelliblade will be integrated in all corona installations provided for this field thus increasing the reliability and efficiency of these installations.
