Intertronics brings Piexzo-brush PZ2-i to production equipment
The automation-ready “i” version of the Relyon Piezobrush plasma treatment unit has been announced by Intertronics.
The PZ2-i is enhanced for use with automated production equipment and ready to be mounted on a robot or machine for semi-automated or automated applications. This brings the benefits of the handheld Piezobrush PZ2, namely its small size and “cold” plasma technology, but makes it simple to integrate into a production process.
The Relyon PZ2-i Piezobrush ionises atmospheric gas to plasma clean and activate surfaces, for improved adhesion of adhesives, or for wetting prior to printing or coating. This is especially useful for surfaces that are difficult to bond or print onto. The low temperature cold plasma discharge is often superior to mechanical or chemical methods of activation/cleaning, especially for delicate parts.
The PZ2-i Piezobrush can activate surfaces prior to the use of adhesives, coatings or inks in industries such as electronics, medical device manufacture, automotive, packaging, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and in laboratory and development work. It aids surface wetting for inkjet or pad printing and encoding for parts across all industries from automotive to consumer.
Using the Relyon piezoelectric technology, the PZ2-i transforms low input voltage into high electric field strengths, dissociating and ionising the process gas, which is normally ambient air, although nitrogen or other gases can be used. The Intertronics PZ2-i Piezobrush is convenient and requires only mains electricity and a compressed air source.
