The company announced in January 2018, the development of its Engineering Department in the Hauts-Sarts industrial zone. Today, together with his partners, IONICS is installing the first pilots for surface treatment by plasma and ion implantation. Here is a brief overview of the machines being installed (from left to right) :
- The “ionPRO” vacuum system is a brand-new production line dedicated to the treatment of large flat parts and products from 1600 to 1800 mm with speeds of 150 mm/s, well suited for industrial upscaling steps and small productions;
- The “ionPOWDER”, an innovative low-pressure plasma coating process to treat powders and loose parts with PVD and/or implantation treatment;
- The “ionLAB” equipment, a semi industrial system able to treat flat substrates up to 400 x 400 mm with a speed 200 mm/s.
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.
