Dual Atmospheric Plasma Torch for Surface Treatment

The Nimbus is a dual nozzle atmospheric plasma torch where both nozzle applicators are driven from a single power supply. The two plasma treatment nozzles operate simultaneously, effectively doubling the treatment width of the single atmospheric plasma equivalent, but can also be applied in different areas.

Each nozzle delivers a continuous plume (8-10mm wide) of active plasma gas to the surface and can easily be integrated with assembly/production lines with or without robot handling. The Dual atmospheric plasma torch 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.

IN-LINE PLASMA ACTIVATION OF:

  •  Polymers
  • Metal
  • Ceramics
  • Glass
  • Hybrid Materials

 


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.

 

Mode

The ‘Mode’ nozzle is standard and suits 95% of all plasma pre-treatment applications

Finite

Our ‘Finite’ nozzle is best suited to confined areas or where a longer reach is needed, for example when treating channels or spaces between components.

 Scope

The ‘Scope’ nozzle produces a ‘curtain plume’ suitable for wider treatment areas and where multiple passes are not practical.
