We are currently in the development phase of a new clean machine - code name SmartBoundary.
The machine will be a contact-free cleaner and will drastically reduce or eliminate the boundary layer, thereby being able to remove contamination which until now has only been possible with polymer contact cleaners. The advantages compared to a polymer roller contact cleaner are:
- High web speeds
- The surface energy of the material being cleaned will not be affected - ideal for coating processes
- Lower operating costs
- Static electricity will not be generated
- Curved surfaces can be cleaned
We are collaborating with a German company and KSM Superclean and hope to have a prototype machine during the first half of 2019.
SmartBoundary is not intended to replace conventional contact clean machines but to compliment them for a range of applications which are not suitable for other types of cleaners
