43. ak-adp workshop in Leipzig
From April 26-27, 2023, relyon plasma will present the piezobrush® PZ3-i at the 43. ak-adp workshop in Leipzig as part of the #ZukunftADP 2021.
With relyon plasma plasma technology, the surface treatment of various materials for further and better processing is possible quickly and easily. With the surface treatment you can thoroughly clean and disinfect surfaces, strengthen the adhesion of adhesives and lacquers and thus improve the overall result. All this is very environmentally friendly as it does not require any chemicals and does not generate any running costs.
A market-leading company in the development, production and distribution of surface treatment tooling solutions uses the new piezobrush® PZ3-i in conjunction with the KEYENCE MK-G1000SA continuous inkjet printer to safely and effectively mark PTFE fabrics.
The highlight of this year’s trade show appearance at Bondexpo is the presentation of the compact integration solution piezobrush® PZ3-i for the first time ever. The cold plasma device is designed for integration into existing production lines and is therefore compact, safe, and efficient. Thus, it is ideally suited for pre-treatment prior to gluing, printing, and laminating.
Without the application of plasma technologies, many industrial processes cannot be realized, or can only be realized at great expense. That is why Relyon Plasma has developed a concept to automate the handling of plasma generators – with robots of Kawasaki.
Surface energy Determination of surface energy by means of test inks and contact angle measurement, enhancement through plasma treatment Wettability is of major importance for all kinds of surface treatments like printing, varnishing and gluing. It describes the behaviour of liquids on solid surfaces which is dependent on the surface tension of the liquid and […]
Plastics are usually characterized by inert surfaces with surface energies between 20 and 40 mN/m. In order to wet a surface, however, the surface energy of the polymer must exceed the one of the paint or the adhesive. This condition can be achieved through a plasma treatment of the surface and is called "activation“ in plasma technology.
The high temperatures which are reached in most plasma applications make many users wonder about process safety, especially when highly sensitive materials are treated. This article addresses open questions concerning temperature and heat conduction during plasma applications and cites critical examples which substantiate the suitability of plasma for temperature-critical processes.
Through a simple measurement of the surface energy, the activation capacity of a surface treatment may be evaluated and quantified. This allows for a quantitative comparison of the performance and efficiency of various methods of surface treatment using a physically defined quantity.
