ionR2R, an innovative reel to reel, air to air ion beam implantation system

The IONICS engineering team has designed a brand-new ion beam implantation system, dedicated to treat cables, metallic strips and connector coils industrial scale : the ionR2RTM. The ion beam implantation process enhances the surface properties (including corrosion resistance, hardness, friction coefficient, optical properties) of precious metal coatings like gold, which decreases the required amount of gold by 4 folds, leading to significant savings on electroplated connectors.  A continuous air to air, reel to reel process on industrial scale is achieved on account of a patented airlock system. A demonstration ionR2RTM system is available for test purposes and production at IONICS.
