ALDYNE™ treatment solutions
A number of our plasma treatment stations allow the user to displace ambient air in the reaction atmosphere in which the plasma arc is ignited and treatment performed by injecting Nitrogen. ALDYNE™ by SOFTAL goes one step further and allows the user to specify the exact composition of the gas atmosphere . In addition to the treatment station, corona generator and Nitrogen supply components, an ALDYNE™ system has one further component: The gas mixing panel.
The gas mixing panel of an ALDYNE™ system uses Nitrogen and inert gases to generate a process gas mixture for injection into the treatment station’s electrode gap. The composition of the process gas can be adjusted, until the process gas atmosphere and plasma discharge fit the requirements of the related material perfectly. Of course, the gas mixing panel control systems allows for different gas recipes for different materials.
In combination with the extermely high power levels that can be achieved with patented liquid-cooled electrodes by SOFTAL, ALDYNE™ offers perfect results where other systems fail. It is a more cost-effective alternative to wet chemical primers and a giant step forward towards environmental protection, process optimisation and long-term cost reduction.
We are proud of our growing global customer base that includes manufacturers of film production lines, finishers, film producers and research companies.
Naturally, the portfolio of products offered by SOFTAL is just as multi-faceted as our customer base. This is made possible by the modular design of our treatment systems, which allows customer-specific changes and a rapid development of new systems and processes. This ideal starting point allows us to meet customer demands and achieve results. Guaranteed.
Customer-specific interfaces and solutions
The numerous hardware and software solutions offered by our treatment systems ensure seamless integration into customer-specific systems and processes. Starting from proven standard components, our systems can be modified to suit any material and/or process. We specialize in the surface treatment of your materials – so you can concentrate on your core business.
There are films that require an extremely high-powered plasma discharge to achieve the desired effect, others are so sensitive to electric discharges that they would be destroyed, even in a standard low-power plasma discharge. There is a solution for every film – just ask us.
Shape, material and position of the corona electrode assembly, along with the characteristics of the related treater roll, determine the homogeneity and efficiency of the plasma discharge. Constant further development of our electrodes has generated a number of patents, including our Intelliblade™ electrode and our liquid cooled ceramic electrodes, both of which have been tried and tested hundreds of times.number of patents, including our Intelliblade™ electrode and our liquid cooled ceramic electrodes, both of which have been tried and tested hundreds of times.
The environmetally friendly alternative
Plasma treatment is the better alternative to wet chemical primers! The high costs for storage and disposal of chemicals are eliminated as well as the high energy and time consumption of the process steps for primer application and drying.
Exact control of treatment atmosphere
ALDYNE™ is the modern alternative to wet chemical primer applications. Instead of wet chemicals, ALDYNE™ utilizes a locally produced process gas mix of Nitrogen and inert gases, which is absolutely harmless. In most cases a process gas control panel is used, which allows the operator to adjust the process gas mixture to the demands of each material to be treated on an individual basis.
The portfolio of products offered by SOFTAL is as diverse as the possible applications of corona technology. Our corona and plasma systems are always based on our tried and tested standard components, but specifically chosen and adopted to meet the demands of your materials and processes.
SOFTAL corona generators are, of course, just as adaptive as our corona stations. It goes without saying that the products of a company that has been successful in the market for decades offer the ease-of-use, robustness, low maintenance and service costs and numerous small and large solutions for smooth everyday production work that you expect form a global player.
