Atmospheric Plasma Treatment –
Harnessing the fourth state of matter

We learn that solid, liquid and gas are the three states of matter. Less known, however, is the fourth state of matter, plasma energy, and it’s produced within 3DT’s PlasmaDyne Pro.

PlasmaDyne Pro obliterates adhesion challenges in manufacturing

Bonding problems are pervasive in manufacturing because many materials refuse to bond to other materials as a result of their chemical structure. PlasmaDyne Pro overcomes these manufacturing and decorating challenges.

3DT’s PlasmaDyne Pro generates atmospheric plasma to treat a wide variety of materials used in manufacturing. It is designed to improve the adhesion of ink, paint, and adhesives prior to decoration, coating or the joining of parts. See it in action- watch the video to the right.

PlasmaDyne Pro produces a highly ionized plasma air stream (similar to lightning) that re-structures the chemical properties of material passed under its treating head. The invisibly altered surface is now capable of powerful bonding with another material. Some typical applications include: the improved adhesion of ink to plastic parts, adhering plastic tubing to medical devices and applying glue to automotive rubber seals prior to flocking.

3DT’s hardworking, classic atmospheric plasma treatment system, PlasmaDyne, has been thoroughly updated as a part of the company’s effort toward continual improvement. Updates include the newest in electrical engineering components and design. Renamed PlasmaDyne Pro, the upgraded system features an optimized, sophisticated control unit, adjustable plasma treatment levels, energy efficiency, modular replacement parts, and it’s compact and economical.

PlasmaDyne Pro’s features and benefits:

  • Adjustable power level up to 500W to achieve desired treatment levels- turn up the power to raise surface energy on resistant substrates or lower the power for delicate substrates.
  • Color touch display for monitoring all system parameters, including troubleshooting and fault log.
  • Modular power supply for treating heads allows for quick, easy changes to keep production running.
  • Active power correction for highest efficiency and lowest operating cost.
  • Compact and economical: PlasmaDyne Pro systems with 3 or more treating heads are now smaller than systems previously produced and more economical as a result.

Micro-clean and Activate Unresponsive Surfaces for Long-lasting Bonds

3DT’s PlasmaDyne Pro uses atmospheric plasma technology to treat a wide variety of surfaces such as plastics, rubber, glass, metals, paperboard and composites. Through this process, the atmospheric plasma (a highly ionized air stream) re-structures the chemical properties of the surface to create a powerful bond between the substrate and adhesives, coatings, laminates, paint, and ink. Plasma is also effective for cleaning surfaces by removing impurities, contaminants, residue, and organic compounds.

The Smart Technology Behind PlasmaDyne Pro-

PlasmaDyne Pro is designed with these unique features-

  • Plasma technology dramatically enhances bonding while eliminating inefficiencies, product damage.
  • State-of-the-art, solid-state microprocessor circuitry – for more precision and control than previously possible.
  • Treating heads are programmed to operate independently, providing the flexibility for numerous applications.

  • Standard self-contained units with one, two, four or eight treating heads include a compact, long-lasting welded and powder-coated steel cabinet and a control system, front door control panel, side remote connector, high voltage transformer(s), and air supply system for the treating head(s).
  • Fully customizable to meet your unique surface treatment application with up to 20 treating heads.
  • Equipped with flexible power treating range delivering a band of treatment from 3/8″ to 1/2 ” or expanded widths from 5/8″ , 1 1/2″, 2″ or up to 8″ with our rotating and or wide nozzle options.
  • A self-contained air supply system uses a DC, low voltage, self-monitoring air blower to avoid contamination from compressed air that occurs with other systems.
  • Low/high plasma treating level alarm to ensure consistent quality results. The system will stop if treatment is compromised.
  • Compact design easily integrates into new or existing production lines.

PlasmaDyne Pro Advantages for Your Bottom Line-

PlasmaDyne Pro is easy to use, cost-effective to operate, dependable and safe.

  • Ease integration and operation – Requires minimal space, is easily integrated onto a robotic arm or reciprocator and offers intuitive functionality for start to finish productivity.
  • Reduced downtime and maintenance – Combination of minimal elements, and state-of-the-art components means smoother operation and longer system life.
  • Designed for quick application changes – Easy programing and profile adjustments minimize downtime.
  • Environmentally friendly – Eliminates the need for toxic primers and solvents and reduces VOC emissions. Facilitates the use of water-born or UV technology.
  • Workplace safe – Produces no ozone and eliminates the risk of high-voltage shocks and hazards of open flame or chemical treatments.

Cost-Saving Durability and Flexibility-

Traditional ceramic treating heads lack flexibility, mechanical strength and require higher maintenance. 3DT’s PlasmaDyne Pro’s treating heads are all metal, extremely durable and are securely connected to the transformer via flexible air and HV hoses. With a compactly designed treating head and an all-in-one utility tube, PlasmaDyne Pro requires minimal space and is easily integrated into single or multiple orifice lines.

That means low maintenance and uniform treatment of your conductive, semi-conductive and non-conductive areas. Designed for quick profile changes and product positioning, PlasmaDyne Pro minimizes downtime while producing consistent treatment.
