Plasma surface treating technology is used to modify the surface of solid objects, such as plastics to solve adhesion and wetting problems.
Plasma treaters work by issuing a stream of electrically charged ions that positively charge the surface molecules making them more receptive to any applied substance such as inks or adhesives for printing, painting, coating, bonding and labelling applications.
Plasma treaters offer a highly targetable and precise form of surface treatment for three-dimensional objects aimed at increasing output and reduce reject rate. They can effectively treat extruded, pultruded, moulded and formed materials. Treatment is ideal for PE, PP, PET, nylon, vinyl, polystyrene, polycarbonate, PVC and all other types of thermoformed and thermoset plastics.
Plasma treaters can also be used on metals and foils to clean and promote adhesion.
Enercon’s range of plasma treaters can be for all robotic applications where inline production can bring speed, accuracy and cost benefits.
