Cirrus & Nimbus Atmospheric Plasma Treatment System Release Henniker are pleased to announce the launch of the Cirrus & Nimbus atmospheric plasma treatment systems which solve a number of manufacturing issues associated with poor adhesion.
Available as both single and dual nozzle versions ideally suited to surface activation and cleaning of a wide range of materials including polymers, metals, glass and ceramics.
Both models are extremely simple to operate via the front panel soft-keypad and can also be interfaced with external control equipment using the rear panel Sub-D connector providing a variety of I/O control inputs and status read-back to ensure seamless operation with production lines or robot cells.
The Cirrus & Nimbus operate from a standard single-phase electrical outlet and require only compressed air for operation. The compact controller features an interlocked airflow regulation unit as standard so that no ancillary equipment is required. The Cirrus & Nimbus address a range of specific material treatments including;
- Plasma cleaning
- Plasma surface activation to improve adhesion
- PEEK & other engineering polymers
