Mechanically self-adjusting plasma
Plasma discharges are an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly technology for cleaning, disinfection, pre-treatment, and functionalization of surfaces. This technology doesn’t require chemicals and only in some applications, cover gases are used.
Description of the Invention
The Plasma Swing technology uses a mechanically responsive system to ensure and maintain correct working distances, as it automatically adapts to changing dimensions and geometries of work pieces. This way, it eliminates the need for elaborate electronic regulation. The technology can be used on almost all conventional materials, including metals, ceramics, glass, polymer or bio-based materials. Applications reach from disinfection to coating, gluing, forming composites and many more.
As a simple and reliable application of a cold atmospheric plasma, surface treatments are now possible in a failsafe process.
