Megatech is introducing a new affordable yet high-quality Atmospheric Pressure Plasma system for surface treatment and thin film deposition. Manufactured by Surfx Technologies, it is designated the Atmo 400 and is suitable for high-speed treatment of two- and three-dimensional surfaces prior to bonding, marking, painting or coating. It delivers consistent and uniform treatment for quality and reliability.
Designed for ease of operation, it features locked and timed modes, with real-time data logging to enable rapid integration into manufacturing processes. The intuitive control panel benefits from a large graphical LCD screen. CE and ETL certification qualify this system for use throughout the world.
The Atmo 400 plasma system is provided with a variety of Surfx's applicators, which can be selected to suit the surface requirements. The applicators are lightweight and can be handheld or integrated within automated or robotic systems. There are no moving parts for trouble-free use, and setup can be completed within 10 minutes.
Atmospheric pressure plasmas eliminate the need for harsh chemicals or inefficient vacuum chambers, which can also be difficult to integrate into the process flow. Atmoflo tools are suitable for a variety of applications including bonding composite materials, treating, cleaning or sterilising medical-grade plastics and metals, stripping organic contamination, and depositing glass films.
In operation the system generates a stream of reactive gas at low temperatures. Materials that can be treated range from polymers, fabrics, and composites to metals, glass, semiconductors and integrated circuits. The target material is placed within 1cm downstream of the plasma source; ions remain trapped between the electrodes, thereby avoiding causing damage to sensitive materials in the vicinity.
In the Atmo 400 the plasma operates near room temperature at atmospheric pressure, with helium as the primary gas and a reagent gas such as oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen or carbon tetrafluoride. The process chemistry is determined by the reagent gas employed.
This versatile system has applications in the electronic, manufacturing, processing, general engineering, laboratory and medical industries.
