Items Often Coated for Packaging Machinery:
- Heat Seal Bars
- Cutting Blades
- Sealing Heads
This is by no means a complete list. This is because any item that has to withstand high heat and be nonstick, such as metal on metal rubbing parts, are ideal for an application of Teflon® or fluoropolymer coatings.
Nonstick Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings for Packaging Machinery Minneapolis
Packaging machines are required to handle a multitude of tasks. They can operate for one shift or all shifts, five days a week, or all week. This means they need to be in peak working condition at all times. And when they are working with thin films of plastic and labels and foils, there can be many opportunities for things to stick and become log jammed. Also, when metal parts rub against one another, this creates friction, which can cause machines to function poorly, thereby slowing down and stopping production as they are repaired. This is why covering parts with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating that provides excellent release is advantageous to the production of a company in Minneapolis. These coatings help all things run smoothly, stick-free.
Abrasion Resistance of Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings
When machines run nonstop, such as they normally do in the packaging industry, they are prone to wear faster, thereby causing work stoppages due to replacing parts. Coating parts with Teflon® or other fluoropolymers will increase their lifespan, saving businesses expenses from replacement parts and extra labor costs. Any parts that are at a high risk of stress or corrosion from continued use will benefit from an application of Teflon® or other fluoropolymer coatings. Coating Solutions can help you decide which coating will be best for your packaging machinery parts.
Heat Resistance Capabilities
Fluoropolymer coatings have superb temperature stability. Heat sealing is a basic step in the packaging industry, and the parts that are involved in this operation need to be resistant to heat. Fluoropolymer coatings have been found to help machine parts last as much as 50 times longer as opposed to non-coated parts. In fact, they have the ability to withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) for continuous use, and 600°F for sporadic use. Coating Solutions will coat your packaging machinery parts so that they will last much longer, increasing productivity and saving you money.
