The reason a plasma treated surface will result in a stronger bond is because the addition of reactive species to the surface of a substrate. The delivery of these species to the metal allows for a chemical bond between the species and the metal. This forms a linking sites. These linking sites are an additional layer on top of the metal that facilitate the spread of the coating across the metal and act as a bonding layer between the metal and the coating. This results in a larger contact area between the metal and coating which enhances bond strength and delays the onset of corrosion.
This sealed system integrates easily into a robotic cell. No dangerous light emissions. Ideal for surface cleaning before welding. This model includes a plasma pen designed for attachment to an end effector and a serial port for digital control.
Engineered to do surface preparation in tight spaces and remotes places. Proven effective 300+ feet in the air on wind turbines. Also proven to withstand use in desert, arctic and coastal environments.
Hand held operation to use at a work bench or in a lab setting. This system is easily portable across a workshop. Setup and ready to go in about a minute with no settings required. The ergonomic plasma pen weighs less than one pound.
