Our products

Product category: Equipment for the pre-treatment of substrates

Hot needle perforation

Many thermoplastic foils (e.g. PP) must be hot-perforated to ensure a high tear-strength. An electrically-heated needle roller, driven at web speed in combination with a heat resistant counter roller guarantee completely round holes with a clean well-formed rim.

This process fulfils the highest aesthetic demands, combined with optimum functionality.

Extrusion Coating

Extrusion-coating lines operate at extreme speeds. Corona treatment stations designed for use on these lines must be extremely reliable and robust. AFS systems demonstrate their capabilities in such applications.

Compact Design, Unparalleled in Robustness and Reliability

22 ceramic electrode bars surround a 400mm diameter treatment roller. Unrivalled, no other company builds such a compact design.

For extrusion-coating lines, it is necessary to transfer enormous amounts of energy at especially high web speeds. This requires a large number of electrodes to be installed in the smallest possible space.

Extremely Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

For extrusion-coating lines, it is necessary to transfer enormous amounts of energy at especially high web speeds. This requires a large number of electrodes to be installed in the smallest possible space.

Best Electrode Mounting on the Market

For this application, our patented electrode mounting make real financial savings.Expensive ceramic electrode bars must be especially-well protected at high web speeds. Large impediments in the web material hitting the brittle ceramic material at high speeds can cause the electrodes to break. For this reason, AFS have developed an electrode mounting which best protects the electrode bars. The bars swing back, and allow the impediment to pass through without damage. When the impediment has passed, the bars return automatically to their correct operating position.

The treatment station opens momentarily to allow a glued joint or splice (which occurs during a roll change) to pass through it. This is executed in approx. 1 second.

Plasmajet®

Plasmajet® (registered AFS trademark) is the name of our plasma-producing device, which operates at atmospheric pressure. The plasma is produced by passing a process gas through a high-voltage field, where it is blown out of the unit, producing a potential-free energy source which is used for surface modification. Applying the plasma to a plastic surface increases its wettability, metal surfaces can be cleaned, and welding of plastic materials is also possible.

The system consists of a plasma reactor with nozzle assembly, a high-voltage generator, a high-voltage transformer, and a high-voltage rectifier.

About us

Company details

AFS have been producing corona treaters and perforation machines for more than 25 years. Working closely with our customers broadens our knowledge everyday. Today we build the best AFS systems ever. Benefit from our experience and our innovations.

Machines for trouble-free, round-the clock operation
AFS machines are built to last. Early warning systems and simple control concepts practically eliminate down-times. This is important, because the greatest costs do not come from the investment in the treatment system, but in any down-time in the production line caused by a defective corona treater.

Just stainless steel, aluminium and ceramic
The design and manufacturing principles at AFS eliminates the use of plastic materials in the machines. This results in extremely sturdy machines. All internal components are easily accessible, which is important for the fast adjustment of the segments and facilitates easy cleaning.

And if you ever need support...
…then our world-wide service is available at the shortest of notice. Our team will make your machines work again without any fuss. Even after many years.

Satisfaction guaranteed
AFS offers you more than the mandatory warranty of quality. Our machines are guaranteed for two full years. We are convinced of our quality.
