Henniker has launched 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, Henniker explains that they are ideally suited to routine surface activation on a wide range of materials leading to much improved bond strength as measured using standard lap-shear strength tests.

According to Henniker, 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.

Henniker claims that 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 addresses a range of specific material treatments including;

  • Plasma cleaning

  • Plasma surface activation to improve adhesion

  • Engineering polymers & composites

  • Metals

  • Ceramics

  • Glass
