Atmospheric Plasma System

The Cirrus atmospheric plasma device localised improvement of the adhesion characteristics of a wide range of materials.

It is a compact standalone instrument which delivers a continuous plume (8-10mm wide) of low temperature plasma to the surface and can easily be integrated with assembly/production lines with or without robot handling. The Cirrus operates with compressed air and doesn’t require any special gases or other services. A rear panel sub-D connector allows start/stop triggering of the plasma via an external signal supplied by the line.

The Nimbus atmospheric plasma device is the dual nozzle version of the Cirrus atmospheric plasma device. Plasma zones can be applied to different areas or overlapped to cover wider areas.

Atmospheric plasma advantages:

  • Fast localised atmospheric plasma pre-treatment of parts prior to bonding
  • Ultrafine atmospheric plasma cleaning
  • Surface activation with atmospheric plasma
  • Highest quality treatments
  • Very low operation cost & easy integration with automated lines

Atmospheric Plasma Applicators

The functionality of the Cirrus and Nimbus has been extended by the introduction of three new application specific nozzle attachments. These are user replaceable and can be supplied with a new system order or for retro-fitting to any existing system.
