Vacuum treating chamber | VacuTEC

Tantec´s VacuTEC Plasma Treater is designed for plasma treatment of a large number of different injection moulded parts.The VacuTEC is available with both single and multiple tray configuration.The VacuTEC offers very fast treatment times and optimum adhesion properties for downstream coating, gluing, painting and printing applications. In the vacuum treating chamber a vacuum is built up to between 2 and 12 mbar before an electrical discharge is created through the integrated plasma electrode. Treatment cycle times are often short, between 2-120 seconds depending on the material and its formulation.The VacuTEC 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 exposed by the plasma discharge.VacuTEC uses the advanced Tantec power generator HV-X series as power supply and specially designed plasma transformers to provide voltage to the plasma electrodes.

Easy to install and use Connect to mains power and compressed air.
Fast treatment times High power impact enables treatment times from 20-180 seconds, depending on material.
Standard or customised chambers Chamber and part trays can be designed to most applications. Many available as standard.
Vacuum level The plasma discharge is active from 1-12 mbar depending on application.
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 the PLC unit. All parameters are displayed through the touch panel. (Standard – Proface).
Cost efficient surface treatment Due to the low power consumption and no need of 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.
Chamber doors Standard doors with manual opening or automatic motor driven doors available.
