An innovative process for the treatment and modification of surfaces.
The Plasmajet® (registered AFS trademark) produces a plasma without a vacuum. The plasma, generated by high voltage in combination with any process gas, is blown out of the unit, and is potential-free. It is used for surface modification.
When the plasma comes into contact with a plastic surface, the wettability is increased. Metal surfaces can effectively be cleaned, and it is also possible to weld plastic sheets.
The system comprises of a plasma reactor with nozzle, a high-voltage generator with transformer and high-voltage rectifier.
Atmospheric pressure process, no vacuum technology required
Extremely low operating costs (energy consumption per nozzle approx. 500 W)
Very safe and clean process compared to flame treatment systems
Potential-free plasma beam, hence conductive materials can be treated without any problems
Good operability of the plasma nozzles, both individually and combined as a group for complex applications
Separate function monitoring of each plasma nozzle
Plasma is an electrically conductive gas consisting of positive and negative ions, electrons, excited and neutral atoms and molecules. In physics, it is often referred to as the 4th state of matter. Plasma is not stable and requires a permanent supply of energy.
Air is the preferred process gas. For special applications, other gases and mixtures can be used without any problems, presume they are not flammable or even explosive.
