Meech’s Hyperion range of static control bars to feature at Labelexpo Europe ‘15

Meech’s Hyperion range of anti-static bars will be prominent on stand 6C34, at Labelexpo Europe 2015 (Brussels Expo, 29th September - 2nd October). The company will highlight the ways in which static control technologies can help improve safety and product quality in the labelling market. Meech will also showcase its unique range of web cleaning systems.

David Rogers, Technical Director at Meech, comments: “As a well-established supplier to the international labelling industry, Meech understands the challenges that this sector faces and for this reason we look forward to demonstrating the ways in which our systems can help maintain efficient, safe and productive manufacturing environments. Versatility plays a key role in the design of Meech’s systems, and this is reflected in our Hyperion range and in the four different technologies we employ for our web cleaners.”

Visitors to the stand will be able to view first-hand the complete range of Hyperion static control systems, which comprises the popular 971IPS and 929IPS anti-static bars, as well as some exciting new additions to the range. Also on show will be the ancillary enhancements, the distance sensor and feedback system. The development and expansion of the Hyperion range has been possible thanks to Meech’s close collaboration with its customers in order to understand their needs and demands. The end result is a range of systems that provides class leading static elimination, with the bars’ default settings allowing quick and easy installation for use on label production lines.

David explains that Labelexpo Europe is the ideal event for launching its latest additions to the Hyperion series. “By updating our technologies and introducing new systems to our ranges, Meech is showing a commitment to providing the best static control solutions possible for our customers in the label market.”

Also on display at the show is Meech’s complete range of web cleaning systems, which includes the TakClean and CyClean. The TakClean, a contact web cleaner employed within the label printing sector, features specifically formulated TransTak elastomer contact cleaning rollers and perforated adhesive rolls, which make it ideal for narrower and slower presses. The CyClean is a compact non-contact system designed to remove and extract contamination. Meech have optimised the cleaning efficiency of the CyClean to remove contamination to below 1 micron. It is best suited for newer, high speed presses and can handle virtually any substrate. As a result, with new ink jet printable webs becoming available, the system provides a future proof solution.

“With a long heritage in static control and web-cleaning, our key objective for Labelexpo is to show visitors to what extent Meech solutions can benefit companies in the labelling sector and advise them on the issues caused by static if left untreated,” concludes David. “We are very much looking forward to showcasing our offering to a wide, international audience”.
