Plasma treatment for adhesive tapes
Atmospheric pressure plasma has established itself as a pretreatment process for the successful bonding of adhesive tapes. The plasma pretreatment ensures significantly improved adhesion.
Get a good overview of the most important mechanisms of adhesion, the correct application and the essential influencing factors of pretreatment with atmospheric pressure plasma.
Maximum process security
Plasma pretreatment modules represent a key technology in automated production systems, in which maximum system availability is essential.
The multi-channel generators of the TIGRES M series also offer the highest scope of services in the area of process reliability.
Comprehensive process monitoring included!
Nozzle-specific power control
Thanks to the nozzle-specific regulation of the power output at the individual nozzles, system fluctuations can be compensated dynamically.
In contrast to multi-channel systems with static and manual power setting, a higher degree of process control and security can be achieved.
The process can be designed flexibly through individual power control of the individual nozzles, even during operation.
Individual nozzle control and monitoring included
The multi-channel system with full control over each individual nozzle - by implementing a separate control circuit for each channel.
A significant technological advance compared to the classic multi-channel systems with series or parallel connections of individual nozzles, which do not allow individual nozzle control.
The channel-specific SystemQualityIndex is a measure for evaluating all disturbance variables and already depicts much more than a purely optical nozzle monitoring.
The TIGRES Multispot system based on the M series generators is the only modular plasma system in the world with a scalable treatment width and full control of the individual nozzles.
Maximum process reliability through the use of M-series technology: real power control, real-time monitoring with SQI included, error log with analysis function, individually monitored and controllable individual nozzles and easy to maintain thanks to plug & play assembly of the individual nozzles.
Flexible treatment width and intensity thanks to various nozzle attachments. Expandable as required. Slot nozzle systems for homogeneous pretreatment with minimal thermal input for temperature-sensitive materials.
The plasma system is specifically designed to be used in laboratorys, research- and health institutions for research and development purposes.
This compact and user-friendly device fits in every lab. It is also suitable to treat non-flammable liquids.
A vast number of applications are possible due to the versatile chemical and physical aspects of the atmospheric plasma: i.e. modification of surfaces, improvement of adhesion, desinfection etc…
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.
Plasma pretreatment for printing
When printing on surfaces, optimal print adhesion and perfect print quality are requirements for successful and cost-effective production.
The steadily increasing customer requirements for printing, especially for plastics, also require a consistent high quality of the print so that high-quality and long-term stable printing can take place.
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.
The potential uses of atmospheric plasma technology are wide ranging. You have the application and we develop the right solution.
