3 Sigma Coating Line Nears Completion

Press release from the issuing company

3 Sigma is installing a wide format specialty coater, with production trials beginning in the first quarter of 2012.  The new coater, designed and built to 3 Sigma specifications, will accommodate 76-inch (193 centimeter) web materials and can apply multiple coatings and/or adhesives on both the front and back of the web.  A laminating station permits producing pressure sensitive constructions with liner or multi-layered product designs.
 
Announcing the new capability, Mike Sotzing, 3 Sigma Vice President of Operations, said: “This new 3 Sigma specialty coater will be our most versatile piece of equipment.  With it, 3 Sigma will be able to produce more complex applications and constructions for specialty and niche markets, as well as those we now serve.  When installation is complete, 3 Sigma will operate 14 coating lines.  We saw significant growth in 2011 and expect another major leap forward in 2012 by virtue of this expanded capability.”
