IONICS is proud to present a brand-new application: the ionPOWDER low pressure reactor. The equipment allows the surface modification of micrometric powders, fibers and loose parts using the Hardion ion source. Hardion is an industrial ion gun solution solving different technical and economic issues generally associated to the process. It enhances the surface properties of your material without any coatings and using an environmentally friendly technology. The system can also be equipped with PVD and PECVD low pressure plasmas deposition processes. The fields of application are numerous: additive manufacturing, thermal spraying, sintering processes, catalysis, mechanical parts, connectors,… The innovation is supported by the Walloon Region through the WALIBEAM project which gathers major industrial actors in the fields of surface treatment of glass, metal and polymer. An R&D scale functional equipment will be present on our booth at HANNOVER MESSE 2019.
