Belgium-Based Leader in Low Pressure Plasma Technology Also Announces New R&D-Center in Shenzhen, China

OUDENAARDE, Belgium, Jan. 2, 2018 - Belgium based Europlasma, a global leader in low pressure plasma technology, is proud to announce that it will feature its next generation of custom coating solution technologies and applications during its annual Product Showcase, held in Las Vegas, Nev., USA from Jan. 9-12, 2018 at The Mirage Hotel & Casino (suite TBD).

"As Europlasma has been quickly advancing nanocoating technologies the past decade, we are excited to present our technologies to the industry at our Annual Product Showcase," explained Filip Legein, Europlasma's managing director. "We are also excited to announce the opening of our new R&D-center in Shenzhen, strategically located in the south of China, to strengthen our link to Asia. We will now be better able to customize coating solutions together with our customers and factories in China, develop customers' SOP's to implement the coating solutions in their manufacturing process, and work with each customer towards optimal coating strategies for their product."

Europlasma was founded in 1993, and has dedicated all 24 years of its history to the development of low pressure plasma technology. Europlasma's nanocoating solutions are marketed under the "Nanofics®" brand name. Nanofics® refers to nanoscaled functionalization into the core of complex shaped materials and products. It is Europlasma's patented and patent pending nanocoating technology platform, first applied on industrial scale in 1996. Europlasma offers innovative nanocoating technology at a pricing model that becomes attractive to mainstream products, whereas Europlasma is unique in building large scaled production equipment that will allow the nanocoating technology to spread to an industrial scale.

Europlasma's best-in-class nanocoatings are used by a growing number of blue chip companies across multiple markets. In electronics, Nanofics® technology is widely used to corrosion protect or splash-proof handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets, Bluetooth speakers, and wearable electronics such as smart watches, earbuds, or headphones. Nanofics® oil repellent nanocoatings improve the efficiency of filter media for HVAC and respirator masks. And a growing number of players in personal protective, outdoor or sporting use Nanofics® to make textiles water repellent in a durable and environmentally friendly way.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
