At Adria, one of European’s leading manufacturers of caravans and motorhomes, the implementation of Openair-Plasma® treatment combined with an automated adhesive application process opened up a new dimension of innovation in the production process. One stop shop – plasma and bonding combined
AEC Illuminazione Srl has been manufacturing street lighting systems, as well as urban, industrial and tunnel lighting installations for over 60 years. All production processes, from the initial project to the final product, are carried out at the company’s headquarters in Tuscany, Italy. Surface cleaning with Openair-Plasma® for reliable lighting systems
Using Openair-Plasma® technology, TPU manufacturer BASF Elastogran was able to greatly expand and improve the bonding capabilities of TPU with other thermoplastics in multi-component injection molding. New compound materials
Since 1999, the polypropylene handles of hand-held blenders have been pretreated with atmospheric plasma systems from Plasmatreat before pad printing at the BSH plant in Slovenia. This process ensures a flawless print image on high-gloss plastic that would otherwise make printing difficult. High-gloss polypropylene pretreatment before printing
Before CeraCon brought the “Foamply” technology to the European market as a new, single-component foaming process in 2001, the company had been searching for globally available and accepted automation technology. Fun with foaming
New Research and Testing Equipment for Highly Technical Surface Treatment
Plasmatreat constantly faces shifting demands as a result of new ideas, regulations, and standards. Customers are increasingly approaching the company with unique and innovative project requests. Consequently, the capacities of the technology and research center will now be expanded to include a class-6 cleanroom.
Comprehensive Process Control for Openair-Plasma Systems
Plasmatreat supports digitized manufacturing with its Plasma Control Unit (PCU) and makes numerous controls, regulation, and monitoring functions available to ensure consistently high surface-treatment quality and reproducibility.
Plasma Instead of Chemicals – Using Openair-Plasma to reduce VOC Emissions
VOCs occur when solvents and solvent-containing products are used, and they are harmful to the environment. Nevertheless, manufacturing in many industries still involves pre-treating surfaces with primers, bonding agents or other chemicals that release VOCs. With its Openair-Plasma process, Plasmatreat offers an environmentally friendly alternative.
