PTS seminar “Secure gluing when processing paper and cardboard”

Knowledge of adhesive systems and their specific properties bring the often decisive added value for efficient production and process design, avoiding complaints and quality assurance measures. The course on June 17 and 18, 2020 in Heidenau (Paper Technology Foundation, Heidenau) provides theoretical foundations on materials and how adhesives work. The most important adhesive systems and their specific properties are presented. It also involves the detection of problematic adhesive surfaces, typical errors in the adhesive process and taking the right measures to ensure quality. Current adhesive research and the increasing replacement of crude oil-based substances with organic raw materials are also an issue.

Experts from practice and science report on the following content:

  • Gluing – Theories & Conclusions for Practice
  • Surface tension – term & measurement method for laboratory & field
  • Preparation of adhesive surfaces with corona, plasma & flame – modes of action & recommendations for use
  • Dispersion adhesives – production, mode of action, development trends, selection criteria
  • Hotmelt adhesives – production, mode of action, development trends, selection criteria
  • Adhesive application techniques – almost anything is possible
  • Quality assurance in bonding processes

Fiber Engineering – Your partner in fiber-blasting technology

The Fiber Injection Molding Technology (FIM) developed by Fiber Engineering enables highly efficient production of three-dimensional molded fiber parts. With FIM 3D fiber parts can be produced with all types of fibers in almost any shape. The special feature is that different densities can be generated inside the components as needed. This reduces weight and material costs to an optimum.

Fiber Engineering develops customer-specific FIM series systems and manufactures parts from almost all fiber materials – from one piece to small and sample series.
