Product Description

Flame Treatment Machine Experts at Systematic Automation For Your Cylindrical Products

Systematic Automation is a leading global supplier of state-of-the-art automated equipment including our patented 360 Degree Flame Treatment Machine used in several industrial processes. We have more than thirty years of experience in designing, engineering, manufacturing and installing superior flame treatment, UV curing, and screen printing machines to manufacturers for various industrial processes worldwide.

Our Model FL (U.S. Patent# 6,397,491 B1) is a versatile workhorse of flame treatment systems, providing dozens of standard features to simplify your process while providing exceptional flame treatment to a wide variety of cylindrical products. With a simple loading station to place your product in the machine, revolving platens rotate your product beginning at an indexed 12 o’clock position and continue rotating as it exits the flame station, providing complete 360° exposure. The flame seam is precisely blended for even distribution to the entire circumference of your product.

The Model FL incorporates universal tooling making it simple to treat products of different shapes and sizes at the same time. With an adjustable Geneva drive mechanism, and platens with optimum vacuum force to hold your substrate firmly in place, this superior flame treatment machine accommodates mugs, glasses, drinkware and glassware of various diameters without the need of special tooling.

Flame Treatment Systems Utilize Patented Engineering Features

Systematic Automation has developed a revolutionary design by incorporating advanced engineering features with superior components for a simple flame treatment machine that requires little maintenance. We utilize a Geneva Indexer that provides smooth dial motion with harmonic acceleration and deceleration, driven by a 100-volt variable speed AC Tech brushless motor.

This patented mechanical design features a simple overload clutch engineered and manufactured in our modern facility. A chain connects the machine controller to the indexer drive and since no programmable logic controller (PLC) is used there is no risk of electrical component obsolescence.

The Model FL 360° flame treatment machine offers years of hassle free maintenance with superior functionality.

Applications for Flame Treatment Machines

Several industrial applications realize cost saving efficiencies with flame treatment systems used as a pretreatment machine on products for better adhesion of inks and exterior coatings that may be applied during a screen printing process. Flame treatment systems are also beneficial in manufacturing processes to burn off contaminants or excess flash on products. Our state-of-the-art flame treatment machines are used with several products including mugs, pint glasses, glass bottles, growlers, glassware, drinkware and plastic bottles.

Systematic Automation sets the industry standard with patented technology for high performing flame treatment systems. We manufacture all machines with quality components for long lasting cost savings. All machines are inspected and tested for reliable performance prior to shipping.

Engineering Features

  • Part flexibility for cylindrical and irregular shaped items. Sizes from ball point pen barrels to gallon containers.
  • Height and angular adjustment for burner.
  • Overload clutch.
  • Machine control technique entirely eliminates the problem of electrical component obsolescence.
  • Geneva indexer provides harmonic (smooth acceleration and deceleration) dial motion.
  • Entire print area is rotated 360 degrees through the flame to maximize adhesion. Uniformity of treatment is guaranteed.
  • Rotating through the flame allows for the fastest cycling time while ensuring thorough, consistent treating.
  • Once parts are loaded, no rollers, belts, or escapements adjust. Changeover from one part to the next can’t get any easier.
  • Whether promoting adhesion for UV inks, coatings, or adhesives, the flame treatment system allows adjustment of indexing and rotation speed as well as flame height.
  • Compact design.
  • Affordable price.
