Sensor Technology - Atmospheric plasma treatment of circuit boards
The international sensor manufacturer Novotechnik calls the employment of the integrated Openair technology “a milestone” in the further development of their sensor production. The technical journal PRODUCTRONIC (11/2009) reports about the application in detail.
Cleaning without contact – Plasma for pretreating glass
The way in which pretreatment with Openair® plasma reliably ensures the successful coating, bonding and decoating of plate glass is described in the technical journal GLASWELT (Glassworld) in its 10/2009 issue.
In its September issue reporting on the FAKUMA 2009 exhibition the German technical journal KUNSTSTOFFE (“Plastics“) describes in a specified article how a novel rotary process from Plasmatreat makes it possible to pretreat large-area lightweight composite panels at high speed in a continuous process.
Plasma and adhesion to rubber, plastics substrates
World-class, fully automated manufacturing processes rely more and more on advanced, environmentally friendly surface treatment technologies. RUBBER & PLASTICS NEWS (USA) reports in its June 15th issue on how Openair atmospheric pressure plasma allows inline rubber and plastic manufacturing processes to become fully automated with total process control.
Pretreatment with atmospheric-pressure plasma allows the joining of materials that in principle are incompatible, such as metal and plastic. The German journal MEDIZIN & TECHNIK (Medicine & Technics) carries a report on how with the aid of Openair plasma complicated composite fittings for use in oxygenators are reliably manufactured at low cost.
Pretreatment with atmospheric pressure plasma is arousing ever more interest among users who require microscopically fine precleaning and high activation of surfaces prior to the finishing process. The American journal PROCESS CLEANING (5/6-2009) reports in its 6-page cover story about the secure and cost saving Openair® process.
The trend towards the use of modern composite materials in aircraft makes numerous new demands on the surface pretreatment and coating. The lightweight construction magazine LIGHTWEIGHTDESIGN (2/09) carries a report on the possibilities for atmospheric-pressure plasma pretreatment.
Treatment of the finishing coat with atmospheric-pressure plasma after a “spot repair” avoids the very dusty sanding of the paint. The German journal of surface technology JOT presents a report on the innovative technique.
Automotive: atmospheric plasma – eco-friendly and cost saving
„Micro-cleaning of surfaces and improvement of adhesion” is the title of an article written by Plasmatreat CEO Christian Buske, which has been published in April in ATZ-PRODUKTION, one of Germany’s leading automotive trade journals.
Press Release: Plasmatreat manufactures production cells including automated solutions for surface treatment of connector strips
In addition to the Openair-Plasma Systems for surface treatment Plasmatreat GmbH also offers individual production cells with automated solutions to ensure seamless integration in the production lines. Plasma Treatment Units (PTU) are tailored to the customer's technical processes and are equipped with various operating options. Here Plasmatreat offers the solution of coordinated process automation combining efficient surface treatment and a perfectly coordinated handling of assemblies and components.
Plasmatreat and Wise are cooperating in plasma processing and activation of copper surfaces in circuit board manufacturing
Earlier this year Massimo Fiorani, Managing Director of WISE s.r.l. from Italy and Christian Buske, Managing Director of Plasmatreat GmbH, signed an international cooperation agreement for the use of Openair-Plasma in PCB-FPC and chemical milling market; Plasmatreat's technology was applied on the new Wonderwise 220 machine from Wise.
