Plasma systems for production

Production plasma systems are designed for continuous use (24/7). The system is controlled via SPS.
The industrial PC provides both visualization of the process as well as controlling and programing of the various process. It also records process protocols for quality assurance and documentation. 

PlasmaActivate

This standard range of Plasma systems demonstrate their strengths in applications such as pre- cleaning, surface structuring and activation. They are also widely used for coating to make surfaces either hydrophobic or hydrophlic, to be anti fogging, order to modify the coefficient of friction.
The parts are loaded and removed via a sliding door to make handling quick and easy. Racks of parts can be filled externally and slid into the chamber. 


Popular plasma applications

Plasma systems are reducing costs and improving quality in a whole range of industries, there are a few examples below.

Plasma cleaning of metals, plastics and elastomers.
Films of oil and fat are effectively removed, even particles are reduced due to the anti static effects of the cleaning. This makes this an interesting option for pretreatment of parts entering a clean area.
Our dual door systems are designed as a pass through and cleaning station all in one. 


Plasma activation of metals, plastics and elastomers.
Provides surfaces for improved adhesion of paints and adhesives providing the best conditions for a more consistent finished product. 


Plasma etching of plastics
Generally used on high performance plastics like PTFE, PEEK or POM as a preparation for bonding. This process effectively roughens the surface providing a greater surface area for bonding. 


Plasma coating
This can be either functional or decorative providing either new look or improved performance by providing a primer to increase the quality and consistency of the adhesion of paint or adhesives.

 


Fields of applications

Inherently clean, sterile and environmentally friendly plasma system are employed in almost all branches of industry.


Plastics industry
Surface modification with out using aggressive fluids that create a high disposal cost.

Metal working industries
Allowing 3 dimensional cleaning of complex parts, corrosion protection and many forms of surface modifications.

Electronics Industry
An inherently anti static process for cleaning surfaces and particle removal. Corrosion protection, creating both conductive or none conductive surfaces.

Medical
None contaminating and inherently sterile coupled with the ability to create extreamly pure and clean surfaces make plasma an ideal process in this industry.

Automobile industry
It all comes together here, the need for good adhesion of paints, plastics to metal and to elastomers. Highly complex parts to clean. The need for consistent accurately monitored processes for excellent quality assurance all favor the use of plasma processes.

 Elastomer technologies
The bonding of elastomers to high performance polymers for example pump diaphragms for corrosive applications, the creation of high performance seals etc. All depend on a consistent reliable bonding technique that can be optimized and simplified by the use of plasma.
