ova Films & Foils offers a customised coating and converting service to industries as diverse as graphic arts to

electronics and industrial markets. The company, located in Bedford, OH, and its 13- strong workforce is headed by Rick Huskey, Larry Meinen, and Bruce Allaben, who bring their specialist talents to bear on a range of prototype, sampling and test products that may (or may not) go on to full commercial production elsewhere. Currently, more than 70% of the company’s output is customised work. Huskey explained: “Our compact size and

experience allows us to offer the flexibility that large manufacturers need but cannot supply without sacrificing technical-know-how of a large company. We have been successful in generating creative solutions where larger companies have tried, tried and failed, or were unwilling to try. We do not automatically say ‘No’ to crazy ideas.” With the emphasis on quality, Nova Films & Foils needs to choose its technology carefully if it is to meet our ISO 9001:2008 criteria. “Our workforce here is both highly skilled and flexible, with most people capable of multi-tasking across at least four machines. By keeping costs down and productivity up, we’ve enjoyed a steady year on year growth of around 15%,” he added. With a need to corona treat at least 50% of its

work, the company searched the market for the most reliable technology with ease of use, and hit upon Vetaphone, the company that invented the process in the 1950s and has pioneered surface treatment techniques ever since.

need for high quality corona treatment, and Vetaphone single and double- sided units were installed on the 65” wide machine that is capable of 600 ft/min. “We chose

Vetaphone because it was highly specified at a competitive price. It also looked better- designed and engineered, and we are convinced we made the right choice,” commented Allaben. The corona units drew particular praise for their small footprint and the ease with which they were integrated into the new coating line. “The design of the electrode cartridges allows easy access for cleaning and maintenance, and any after sales support we’ve needed has been prompt and efficient,” he added, mentioning the on-call technical back-up available from Vetaphone.

achieved by the corona treaters across a range of substrates has allowed the company to develop new products and be more responsive to its customers’ demands. “It gives us greater confidence in what we’re selling – and I get a better

night’s sleep too,” he said with a smile. Critical to the work handled by Nova is tight tolerance and consistent performance so that any future commercial production quality matches that of the prototype work produced. Materials handled vary from very high surface tension of 50 dynes/sq/cm or more, such as metals, to high surface tension with a rating of 35 – 45 dyne such as Polyester, Vinyl and Nylon, to ratings of 35 dyne or less, which includes PE, PP, and PVA.
