Free upcoming webinar: Adhesion Challenges — Corona Treatment vs. Plasma Treatments
TAPPI
Do you have a good understanding of the roots of surface treatment challenges for polymeric, metallic, and composite materials? Can you describe the corona and plasma treatment mechanisms which overcome those challenges? If not, then you should participate in the one hour webinar, "Corona Treatments vs. Plasma Treatments" at 10 a.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 25.

Corona discharges and Atmospheric pressure plasmas are valuable tools for the surface treatment of materials prior to printing, laminating, coating, painting, bonding, and other applications. They are used in a diverse number of manufacturing environments such as packaging, converting, medical, electronics, aerospace, automotive, solar, battery, and many others. The applications in these industries all have one thing in common – adhesion challenges.

Join Rory Wolf, Business Unit Manager for ITW's Pillar Technologies, in Hartland, Wisconsin, as he breaks down these challenges. This is a free webinar, however registration is required. Register now.

Mitigating packaging damage in the supply chain
Packaging Digest
Before putting together a plan to reduce package damage during distribution and transportation through the supply chain, you need to examine how damage occurs and ponder these questions. Even stretching the limits of extreme accountability, it’s virtually impossible for an inanimate object — say, a case of 24, 18 ounce cans of corn — to heed a common warning: "Travel at your own risk."

KM Packaging has fresh produce storage in the bag
Packaging Europe
The Unisold bagging system is manufactured from a renewable source which is not only very strong – resisting splits – but can also be printed to promote a current brand or promotion. This is in stark contrast to many of the current bagging systems available in supermarkets, which can offer a thin, anonymous bag that is too small, often splits and is rarely dispensed singly, leaving nearby produce displays littered with unused plastic.

Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements

Winding Machines, Mechanics and Measurements is the definitive book on the science of winding written by noted experts Dr. David Roisum and Dr. JK Good. This three-part book (with supplemental CD-ROM) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery commonly found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; describes how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; and discusses almost every method for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality. The book describes how and why many wound roll defects occur. In more than a few cases, it even describes when defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application. In these cases we have science at its best, a predictive tool. A CD with an easy-to-run winding model is included with every book. However, one need not be a scientist to appreciate and use this text. Much of it is written in everyday language describing the machines we work with, the defects we see and the many measures of roll quality. It is a book that most plants with a winding department would want to have.
