Intelligent plasma treatment for automotive manufacturing

Plasma Treatment technology supplier, Dyne Technology, has introduced the PlasmaTEC-X Atmospheric Plasma System. The solution is said to provide an economical, efficient and environmentally friendly method of improving adhesion and wetting qualities of a wide range of substrates from traditionally ‘non-stick’ polymers to composite blends, ceramics, glass and metals.

This method of material preparation is often undertaken prior to bonding and coating applications on small, targeted treatment areas due to the high level of accuracy and repeatability offered. Example components treated include brake pads, centre consoles, instrument panels, engine control units, EPDM profiles, lighting units and a wide range of interior and exterior trim components.

The PlasmaTEC-X is claimed to offer a foot print of less than half the size of traditional Atmospheric Plasma systems and features Dyne Technology’s highest performance Atmospheric Plasma output yet. Boost Mode is said to further increases Plasma output by up to 50%, and is suitable for the high performance automotive industry.

The unit continuously monitors air flow to ensure that it is consistently running at its optimum performance levels ensuring high performance, reliability and repeatability.

For those with high demands, up to eight plasma nozzles can be operated via one control box and cable length can be chosen from 2 to 8m. The PlasmaTEC-X’s plug and play technology ensures the unit is easily installed with automation alongside new and existing production lines while the easy to set up timer mode allows for both simultaneous and independent nozzle operation.

The system also automatically monitors wear and tear of components removing the guess work for consumables replacement, minimising unexpected downtime and reducing the cost of consumables as you only replace parts when necessary.
