Henniker are pleased to announce the launch of the CIRRUS & NIMBUS atmospheric plasma treatment systems which solve a number of manufacturing issues associated with poor adhesion. Available as both single and dual nozzle versions ideally suited to surface activation and cleaning of a wide range of materials including polymers, metals, glass and ceramics.

Both models are extremely simple to operate via the front panel soft-keypad and can also be interfaced with external control equipment using the rear panel Sub-D connector providing a variety of I/O control inputs and status read-back to ensure seamless operation with production lines or robot cells.

The CIRRUS & NIMBUS operate from a standard single-phase electrical outlet and require only compressed air for operation. The compact controller features an interlocked airflow regulation unit as standard so that no ancillary equipment is required. The CIRRUS & NIMBUS address a range of specific material
treatments including;

  • Plasma cleaning
  • Plasma surface activation to improve adhesion
  • PEEK & other engineering polymers
  • PCBs
  • Metals
  • Ceramics
  • Glass
