The AtomfloTM 600 argon plasma system is ideally suited for in-line cleaning and activation of materials prior to bonding. The plasma produces a beam of reactive atoms that etch away contaminants on the surface all the way down to the atomic scale. The compact and lightweight plasma head, together with the low-voltage, radio-frequency power supply, make it safe and easy to integrate surface treatment into any assembly line. The beam of reactive atoms is low temperature and 100% electrically neutral. It treats metals, glass, and plastics. It will not damage sensitive electronics, or thin film polymers, such as polyethylene. An in-line production system can treat millions of parts per year at a cost of ownership of a few cents per part.
