Advanced Plasma Surface Treatment Systems

Henniker’s advanced plasma surface treatment systems feature large format vacuum chambers along with many advanced features, all with the reliability of recipe driven PLC control. They are configurable tools that are both robust enough for reliable, repeatable industrial processing and at the same time flexible enough for the research into, and development of, leading-edge plasma processes.

 

The NEBULA range has been designed around our core technologies in plasma surface treatment and plasma process development. With chamber volumes ranging from 50L to 150L, each instrument may be configured with multiple parts tray/electrodes for either horizontal or vertical mounting arrangements. Additionally, a high capacity rotary drum mechanism can be chosen for the treatment of large numbers of small parts for example.

NEBULA plasma systems are used for cleaning, adhesion improvement and enhanced wetting of surfaces via plasma surface activation. Treatments can be performed equally on metals, polymers, composites, glass and ceramics.

A unique feature of each NEBULA system is the addition of an optional monomer dosing inlet. This is a fully automated device for the introduction of a wide range of liquid monomers to produce permanently functionalised surfaces via plasma polymerisation, greatly extending the range of plasma surface treatment possibilities in a single machine.
