3DT Celebrates 25 Years

Plastics Decorating

3DT LLC, Germantown, Wisconsin, celebrated its 25th anniversary in August.

In the 1990s most automotive, medical and packaging manufacturers were using chemical primer baths, physical abrasion and flame treatment to increase the surface tension and bonding on 3D parts. The drawbacks of these methods were huge, including being costly and hazardous to the environment and health. As a result, the new, safe, quick and less labor-intensive corona treatment took off, particularly with 3DT’s reliable and highly effective equipment.

Today, 3DT produces a complete line of surface treatment systems developed to manage difficulties on nearly all substrates and configuration of parts. 3DT covers the spectrum in surface treatment solutions from microcleaning Petri dishes for cell growth to improving the adhesion of flocking on rubber profiles. Their systems range from compact tabletop units to mammoth 10 treating head systems. 3DT represents two German companies for North America: SOFTAL and AFS.
