In order to achieve optimal results in coating processes and in wire bonding of battery contacts, reliable and reproducible results are essential. Plasma pretreatment is used to prepare and clean the surface before bonding. Depending on the material and process to be treated, air or forming gas is used as the process gas in the plasma nozzle.
Forming gas consists of at least 95% nitrogen and up to 5% hydrogen. The low hydrogen content is in an uncritical mixing ratio. The forming gas reduces the material and can, for example, reduce oxidized copper or silver back into bare metal in a very short amount of time.
TIGRES plasma nozzle systems can be easily integrated into fully automated inline production processes and are therefore ideal for high production speeds and quantities.
