During Labelexpo Europe 2019, IEEC partners Lombardi, Multitec, Monotech and U V Graphics installed corona-treater on their presses.

Talking to PrintWeek India, Pramod Arage, sales manager, key accounts, IEEC, said the company takes care of all safety measures as their corona-treaters are CE marked confirming to the American and European safety standards. “Our plug-in connections make easy and fast installations of corona-treater,” Arage said.

In 2016, IEEC was awarded the prestigious India Design Mark from Government of India for the best design category of Narrow Web Treater.  

The company is now supplying its systems globally to end-users as well as flexo printing press manufacturers. It has installed many corona-treatment systems in Middle East, USA and Europe since the last Labelexpo Europe 2017.

“We did more than 100 installations globally through OEMs and at end-users,” Arage said. “We have a major share in the Indian market as well. The features we provide have been appreciated by our global customers.”

Arage said that ink anchorage is a serious problem during printing the label, and thus, inline corona-treatment is an effective and economical solution of increasing the surface energy of the base substrate prior to printing.

“Most label producers now understand the importance of corona-treater requirement on their presses. Corona-treater is the most economical technique to increase surface energy of a substrate for better bonding of ink with substrate,” he added.
