Teknek to reveal world beating web cleaning range at Labelexpo India

Teknek, the global leader in yield improvement technology, will be unveiling a new world beating suite of products for the web cleaning sector with the launch of no fewer than four new contact cleaning machines. The new line up offers the best possible yield improvement technology for webs ranging from 150mm to 2500mm and includes:


XWCH – a top of the range machine for wide web cleaning up to 2500mm.  Robust yet still lightweight, it has been designed to fit a wide range of lines even where space is at a premium.  A patented slide system allows quick and easy access to replenish rollers and adhesive rolls.  A brand new control system means integration times are reduced and up time improved.  This range is complemented by the new Nanocleen Plus adhesive which not only introduces static dissipating function to the adhesive roll but is now available in widths up to 2,200mm – an industry first.


SL and MWC – low profile cleaning range.  Designed for the narrow web industry, these new machines have the lowest possible profile offering a wider range of lower cost integration options.  Widths available range from 150mm to 1,100mm and each machine is compatible with the full range of Teknek’s unique cleaning rollers and adhesive rolls including Nanocleen Plus.  The MWC is available in both single and doubled sided versions and features full pull out side access for easy replacement of rollers and adhesive rolls.


TCH – this is a compact entry level machine offering superb value for money.  It is designed for a wide range of single sided applications from 200mm to 1500mm and is clean room compatible.  Capable of operating at web speeds up to 150 mtrs/min it is an excellent “mid-range” solution for many cleaning applications.


Stephen Mitchell, managing director of Teknek, said: “With the introduction of the new range Teknek will be able to offer the label and converting sector the most comprehensive selection of yield improvement solutions from any manufacturer worldwide.”


He added: “Teknek pioneered the development of contact cleaning over 20 years ago and we have continued to innovate and develop the products to remain at the forefront of yield improvement.  We are now the supplier of choice for the label and converting industries globally.”


Contact cleaning equipment is employed world-wide in a variety of industries from label and converting to electronics and printing to improve yields and reduce wastage by removing contamination in critical production processes.  The company pioneered the development of contact cleaning equipment over 20 years ago and is now the global market leader in this field with over 16,000 “clean machines” installed in the field.  It is estimated that the company’s technology has saved customers in excess of $2bn.
