Enercon says two heads are better than one when cleaning substrate surfaces and raising their surface energy to promote ink adhesion. The new, dual-head Dyne-A-Mite IT is powered by a single supply, and its heads can be aligned to increase treat width, extend dwell time, or treat multiple angles of complex surface geometries. The blown-ion air plasma system is designed to deliver a high-velocity stream of charged ions to an object’s surface. Direct contact between ion particles and substrate leaves the surface positively charged, which increases surface energy and promotes ink receptivity. An optional tri-functional treat-switching device allows operators to use the treatment heads in unison or independently.
