Plasma in the watch-making and jewellery industry

The right process for your application

Start an inquiry

 

To meet the high demands of the watch-making industry in the beauty, functionality and longevity of its products, plasma is used increasingly. Thanks to the possibility of ultra-fine cleaning at low treatment temperatures and extremely good penetration into cracks, plasma applications are becoming more and more important. The fact that the parts require no subsequent drying is another major advantage. The environmentally friendly plasma process leaves no cleaning residues on the part, resulting in low to non-existent disposal costs.

Also for the jewellery industry, this plasma process is highly significant.

Materials cleaning

Plasma technology offers solutions for any type of contamination, for any substrate and any post-treatment. In the process, molecular contamination residues are decomposed as well.

Activation of materials

Good wettability is a prerequisite for the adhesion of binding partners in painting, gluing, printing or bonding.

Etching materials

Plasma technology allows for anisotropic and isotropic etching. Isotropic etching is done by chemical etching and anisotropic etching by physical etching.

Coating of materials

With low-pressure plasmas, components can be tempered with various coats. This is done by supplying gaseous and liquid starting substances into the vacuum chamber.

Frequent applications of plasma in the watch-making and jewellery industry

We have the solution!

In the watch-making industry, the focus is on beauty, functionality and longevity. Cleaning the minuscule parts is a difficult-to-manage task. Most processes use detergents which leave residues on the parts and require time-consuming drying. Visible detergent residues in a high-quality product like a watch are completely unacceptable. For the jewellery industry, the need for the parts to dry off after cleaning means major time losses. Since most of the detergents are harmful to the environment, their disposal is expensive.

Plasma application offers ultra-fine cleaning at low treatment temperatures, making subsequent drying of the parts redundant. The environmentally friendly plasma process leaves no cleaning residues on the part, resulting in low to non-existent disposal costs.
