Vacuum Plasma Treater | VacuLINE

Standard and Customised Vacuum Plasma Treaters. The Tantec VacuLINE Plasma Treater is designed for treatment of a variety of different injection moulded parts. The machine is ideal for in-line production, where no operators are needed. The VacuLINE system offers very fast treatment time and optimum adhesion properties for downstream coating, gluing, painting and printing applications.

In the treating chamber a vacuum builds up to between 1 and 4 mbar before an electrical discharge is created through the integrated plasma electrode. Treatment cycle times are often short, between 20-180 seconds depending on the material and its formulation.

The VacuLINE plasma treater, is appreciated for its simplicity of operation, reliability in production and fast process speed. Treating gasses, such as argon and oxygen, can be applied but in most cases, this is not necessary due to the high power delivered by the plasma discharge. VacuLINE uses the advanced Tantec power generator HV-X series as power supply, and specially designed plasma transformers to provide voltage to the plasma electrodes.
