AFS is reliable. Always.
The PlasmaJet ®
An innovative process for the treatment and modification of surfaces.
The Plasmajet® (registered AFS trademark) produces a plasma without a vacuum. The plasma, generated by high voltage in combination with any process gas, is blown out of the unit, and is potential-free. It is used for surface modification.
The system comprises of a plasma reactor with nozzle, a high-voltage generator with transformer and high-voltage rectifier.
Advantages of this process
Plasma is an electrically conductive gas consisting of positive and negative ions, electrons, excited and neutral atoms and molecules. In physics, it is often referred to as the 4th state of matter. Plasma is not stable and requires a permanent supply of energy.
A PlasmaJet® system always consists of a high-voltage generator and a plasma nozzle. Inside the plasma nozzle, the plasma is generated by a high-voltage discharge between two electrodes. The process gas flows around the electrodes, where it becomes plasma and due to its flow exits through a nozzle to the outside. This is referred as remote plasma and the low-cost process gas is air.
Excellent treatment results can already be achieved with this. By selecting the right outlet nozzle, it is also possible to treat workpiece geometries which are difficult to access. The low weight of the plasma nozzle and the flexible gas and energy supply make the PlasmaJet® universally applicable.
AFS Generators: Unprecedented power output
The generators, especially developed for PlasmaJet® applications, enable unprecedented power output. For surface treatment, 500 W per nozzle is sufficient. For welding and cleaning, a maximum of 1000 W per nozzle power is required.
Generator in 1/2 19″ housing for one nozzle with max. 1000 W effective power output
Generator in 1/2 19″ housing for two nozzles with a max. effective power of 1200 W
Generator for one nozzle with max. 500 W effective power output for multi-nozzle applications (exclusively for control cabinet installation)
