Krauss-Maffei plastics engineering: Innovative supplement
In-Line application inside the injection mould: The Openair® plasma nozzle can be integrated directly into the user’s process.
Openair® plasma technology allows combinations of materials that until now used to fail because of reasons of adhesion. Krauss-Maffei as a leading manufacturer of plastics machines
has been enabled by this innovative technology to make totally new
applications accessible through the integration of the plasma process –
e.g. in the two-component injection moulding processes. For our
business, this technology is eligible for all material combinations
where otherwise no sufficient adhesion can be attained.
Aside the technological advantages „adhesion bonding” and
“reproducibility”, the economic aspect is of particular importance
here: The plasma pre-treatment can be executed in-line. That was one of
the decisive reasons for our choice of the Openair® plasma method,
since such a solution had not been on the market before. In the future,
this technology will be an essential system-constituent for the
fabrication of material compounds and could play a big role in medical
For Krauss-Maffei, Plasmatreat’s high innovative ability is a decisive precondition for a partnership!
