Thanks to its robot controlled inline technology, the Openair® Plasma process integrates very easily into headlight manufacturing lines.
The special characteristics of Openair® Plasma mean that the surfaces treated are not exposed to electric discharges as they would be with corona pretreatment, for example. With plasma pretreatment, the temperature increase in the materials being processed is very slight (as opposed to flame pretreatment). Chamber systems, such as required with low-pressure plasma treatment, are not needed.
The delicate and electrically conductive reflectors of the headlights can be pre-assembled and are not affected by plasma pretreatment, since this process is potential-free.
