Rang Dong Installs Vetaphone Corona Treater Rang Dong has installed its first Vetaphone corona treater on a Shaanxi Beiren laminator at its production plant in the Tan Do Industrial Park in Long An Province, Vietnam. The company is part of the Rang Dong Plastics Group that was established in 1960, and its production site cov- ers 8.3 hectares and employs many hundreds of people. The Vetaphone treater is a VE1C-D (4C) model, with a 1320mm web width and an operational speed to match the 200m/min laminating line. Used principally on 25-micron PET and CPP substrates that require a minimum dyne level of 38 for processing, the treater has a maximum power rating of 5kW. The Long An site includes a diverse product catalogue that includes middle pressing, zipper, vertical, liquid cover, and vacuum bags as well as shrink sleeves. The plant produces more than 13.5m square metres of flexible packaging per year and more than 10,000 tons of shrink film for markets such as food, confectionary, phar- maceutical, cosmetics, and agriculture. Rang Dong was the winner of two prizes at the 2022 Vietnam Packaging Awards – one for ‘Excellence’ and the other for ‘Creative Packaging’ with both products being produced for customer Nestlé.
