Vacuum Plasma Treater | VacuLINE

Standard and Customised Vacuum Plasma Treaters. The Tantec VacuLINE Plasma Treater is designed for the treatment of a variety of different injection molded 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 a power supply, and specially designed plasma transformers to provide voltage to the plasma electrodes.

Technical specifications

Easy to install and use Connects to main power and compressed air.
Fast treatment times High power impact enables treatment times from 20-180 seconds depending on materials.
Standard or customized chambers Chamber size can be designed for most applications.
Process gas Process gasses such as oxygen and argon can be used, but in most cases it is not necessary.
Process control The entire plasma process is controlled by the HV-X generator and PLC unit. All parameters are displayed on the touch panel. (Standard – Proface).
Cost-efficient surface treatment Due to the low power and no need for special treatment gasses, the unit is a very cost-efficient solution for improving surface wettability and adhesion.
Vacuum pressure plasma Enables treatment of both conductive and non-conductive surfaces.
Works in fully automated lines Integrates easily into robot cells or existing transportation lines.
