Meech – Showing new Hyperion SmartControl
USA • Last chance to see Meech’s product portfolio at Labelexpo Americas 2018 (stand 551). On display is the company’s new Hyperion SmartControl, the Hyperion 233v4 Pulsed DC Controller, Meech’s Hyperion range of anti-static bars (971IPS-15, 971IPS-30, 929IPS, 924IPS), the Hyperion BarMaster programmer, the CyClean non-contact web cleaning system, and IML generation equipment.
According to the company the SmartControl has been developed to allow easy communication between connected Meech Ionisers though either a LAN or WAN network. Through the SmartControl, connected Meech Hyperion equipment is able to be adjusted quickly and remotely through a single online platform, reducing the need to monitor static control issues on site. Only one SmartControl is needed for the central control of up to six Hyperion ionisers, with expansion kits available where more devices are needed to be monitored.
Comprising the 929IPS, 924IPS and 971IPS, Meech’s Hyperion range of ionising bars are also on display. Providing mid-range ionisation, the 929IPS bar offers extremely powerful static control, while the 924IPS short-range bar is one of the most compact pulsed ionising bars on the market. The Hyperion range provides industry-leading static elimination, with the bars’ default settings allowing quick and easy installation for use on converting lines. Showcased alongside them will be Meech’s Hyperion 971IPS-15 and 971IPS-30 bars, designed for even longer ionisation ranges. The 971IPS-15 offers ease of installation and eliminates the need for high voltage cabling, while the 971IPS-30, the most powerful ionising bar in the Meech range, is for extra-long range applications (operating distance of 450 to 1500mm).
Rounding off Meech’s anti-static bar solutions at Labelexpo is the 924. A short-range ionising bar used on web paths on converting machinery or printing presses, this Pulsed DC ionising bar’s compact and lightweight size offers ease of installation and reliable static control between each pass.
Also on the stand is Meech’s Hyperion 233v4 Pulsed DC Controller. Suitable for use in a wide variety of sectors, the 233v4 is a compact and powerful controller that includes Meech’s ion current monitoring. According to the company this allows greater control of the ionisation performance of up to two Meech pulsed DC ionisers. Maximum output voltage is 15kV,.
Representing Meech’s web cleaning technology will be the non-contact web cleaning system, CyClean. Compact, with optimised cleaning efficiency, the CyClean is capable of removing contamination to below 1 micron.
For the in-mould labelling (IML) market, Meech presents its 994CG. A lightweight, compact static generator developed to fit on the end of a robot arm, the 994CG is designed for use with Meech’s Hydra in-mould labelling pinning system and features 4 x 25kV outlets without the need for a splitter.
