Why is surface treatment that important? Where can treatment be applied in your process/facility/production? How can costs be reduced with surface modification? If these are questions you deal with during your daily work, you are invited to participate in this Plasma Talk from Tim Smith, CTO of Plasmatreat North America.

Plasmatreat offers more than 100 applications within the automotive manufacturing industry. Next to established applications like printing, bonding and painting for interior and external vehicle parts, Plasmatreat is focusing on new technologies like adhesive bonding - the joining process of the 21st century. Plasma treatment can play a significant role in protection for sensitive electronics and sensors, bonding for displays, and emerging applications for e-mobility such as battery production.


You will learn to use Plasma:

  • as a key technology for treatment of multi material parts
  • to reduce costs in your production while ensuring your production quality
  • as an environmentally friendly process for surface treatment

Plasmatreat would like to stimulate/foster discussion and ideas for new products and processes.

The Plasma Talk will run for between 40 - 60 min including a question and answer session. If you have a specific problem or question then please send your question in advance of the PlasmaTalk to so we can include it in the program.
