RTS POWDERED RESIN SURFACE TREATING EXTRAORDINARY METHOD TO SURFACE TREAT POWDERED RESIN FOR ENHANCED SURFACE PROPERTIES. PRESENTED BY:. Lectro Engineering Company 1643 Lotsie Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63132 USA Phone: (314) 567-3100 Fax: (314) 567-3466
The Lectro-Treat technology has been utilized to surface treat plastic parts for over 50 years.
Adapted the Lectro-Treat technology to treat resins to enhance adhesion & improve wettibility of all types.
RTS = Resin Treatment System
Surface Treatment lasts for 3+ years and counting
Adjustable treatment levels / Continuous process
Proven QC Methods relate to performance
Successful commercial testing
Significantly longer term effect as compared to past technologies
Surface properties not diminished 3 years after treatment per current testing - once you have modified the surface, you will not lose it!
Not effected by sunlight
Treated powdered resin put into molds
Powdered resin compressed with standardized time / pressure
Specific surface tension fluid added to each cube
Absorbed drops indicates treatment level
The auger is powered by a VFD controlled AC high efficiency motor. The system is geared to provide a very slow rpm of the auger while maintaining mid frequency of the AC motor. This is designed for easy disconnect when removing the auger for color changes.
This shows the silicone wrap and band clamp seal between the glass tube and stainless steel hopper. Silicone has a very long life in the treating environment.
The treated powder resin discharges into customer supplied roller totes or can be setup to discharge directly into Gaylords.
Easy access for quick change of resin containers.
Covers are clear for easy viewing of the process.
This shows the auger running through the 12” glass tube inside the High Voltage Discharge area.
This shows the discharge inside the glass tube before powdered resin has been augered into the High Voltage Discharge area.
The discharge end of the auger is easily accessed as well. Pull off the “Discharge Tee” and the screw is readily available to be pulled out. The augers are very strong, but are made from light weight materials for easy handling by just two people.
The drive end of the auger is very easy to disconnect. The chain and tension come off and are out of the way for removal of the auger. The hopper end plate is split and slotted for quick release removal through the resin hopper.
Since 1960 Lectro Engineering has been providing 3D
Plastic Surface Treatment Systems for companies
worldwide. In 2001 the company grew with the acquisition
of MTM Systems giving customers a one stop shop for
downstream blow molded equipment including Spin
Trimmers, Impact Deflashers, Demoilers, ID/OD Reamers,
and Takeaway Machines. Lectro also purchased
Automation Technologies Incorporated (ATI) in 2001. The
ATI division provides Custom Production Automation for
Manual, Semi-Automatic, and Turnkey Automated Systems
for a variety of industries. Lectro has representatives
worldwide providing solutions for the plastics industry.
