It is hard to imagine the modern packaging industry without atmospheric plasma.
Outer packaging, which used to be made of "printed cardboard," is now made of plastic or of cardboard with a foil coating. These new materials place different demands on the base surface.
It is impossible to create an adhesive bond if the surface has not been activated with atmospheric plasma.
Selective ultra-fine cleaning or activation of surfaces on the production line is a steadily growing market.
More and more components, assemblies, etc. are joined or fixed in place by adhesion, making pre-treatment essential. This requires single-nozzle or multiple-nozzle heads or multi-systems, depending on the product, material and geometry.
Homogeneous plasma pre-treatment of thermally sensitive substrates at low operating speeds.
With the EDC feature, the operator can control the plasma intensity as a factor of the line speed. This ensures that pre-treatment at different speeds produces virtually the same results on the substrate.
EDC can be used not only for single plasma discharges but works just as well with our established plasma systems Plasma Multi MEF.
A wealth of electrical and electronic systems makes our life easier. Such systems are often used outdoors. Just think of automatic gate and garage door openers. The equipment is constantly exposed to humidity and fluctuating temperatures.
Outdoor use means that electronic components have to be encased in casting compounds to ensure that they function properly. Both components have to be activated for the casting compound to bond securely to the electronics as well as to the casing surfaces.
Handles, tubes, bottles, flacons, flower boxes, writing instruments, toys, painting supplies, tools, covers, front panels and innumerable other plastic products are activated before printing to ensure that the paint or ink bonds properly and permanently.
The best activation method is determined based on throughput, the surface energy required, the surface to be printed and many other parameters. All of our systems that work with atmospheric pressure are worth considering - Plasma MEF, Plasma CAT and T-JET technology.
Sensitive, 100 percent, consistent, reliable, lasting, careful - there are just a few of the properties essential to a medical technology manufacturing process.
Whether bonding needle tips or adapter pieces, printing syringes or insulin pens: The ink or adhesive has to bond extremely well. This can be achieved only when the surface is treated by ultra-fine cleaning or activation.
TIGRES GmbH has been a leader in the field of atmospheric pressure plasma treatment since 1993. Our system solutions for activating, ultra-fine cleaning and coating surfaces are being used in the most varied industries all around the world. Many materials used in the automotive, aerospace, electrical, medical, consumer appliances, printing, textile and packaging industries are modified with our equipment before further processing.
We would be happy to answer your questions and introduce you to our equipment at these events:
Be convinced of the benefits of our technology before investing!
Make an appointment with one of our sales reps. It is best to run tests at your plant. But you can also send us components, samples, etc. to test in our product and development lab, where the complete range of plasma systems is available for your applications.
