Corona & Plasma Surface Treatment

Modern, dependable film and web surface treatment

AFS designs, develops and manufactures high quality corona, plasma and perforating systems. With 30 years of experience, AFS has established a reputation for producing innovative systems made to the highest of standards in the film and web treatment industry. In fact, AFS is the preferred supplier to many machine manufacturers due to AFS systems’ superior performance in functionalizing difficult-to-bond materials.

AFS aims to protect the customers’ bottom line with flexible, robust design, and trouble-free, around-the-clock, continuous operation. AFS is located in Horgau, Germany and is represented by 3DT in North America. Are you interested in German engineering with state-side sales, service and support? You’ve come to the right place.

The AFS Advantage:

  • Surface treatment for a wide variety of substrates: plastics, paper, metals and textiles
  • Maximum bonding of inks, lacquers, coatings, and adhesives
  • Consistent, repeatable functionalization of surfaces
  • Systems are customizable to your application
  • Designed to easily integrate into your current production lines
  • AFS generators run at the resonant frequency for maximum efficiency

Corona for printing, laminating, coating 300E AFS


Look to AFS for solutions to your printing, laminating, coating and packaging needs. AFS’ advanced corona treating systems meet the challenges of complex composite materials. In converting applications, it is often necessary to refresh or boost the existing surface energy level, especially with water-based or UV inks and coatings. For this reason, AFS and 3DT offer standard and customized stations, working closely with OEMs in this area.

AFS Modular Generators


A revolutionary new concept: modular generators, designed to keep your production up and running and to provide new power differentials for demanding lines. The modular generator’ plug-and-play technology allows these modules to be quickly exchanged. The failure of one does not mean downtime- just a reduced output of power. Importantly, more modules mean more power. As a result, demanding corona treatment lines can maximize their output by increasing the number of modules.

AFS sets the standard in generator design for the surface treatment industry. They are reliable, efficient and user-friendly. All AFS generators operate with the same innovative technology developed and improved over many years. An efficiently operating generator, at the resonant frequency, ensures the longest possible life and the greatest energy yield.
