AUXILIARIES Hand-Held Plasma Treater A new universal atmospheric plasma treater from Enercon Industries, Menomonee Falls, Wis., enables hand-held surface treatment of a wide variety of materials and applica- AUXILIARIES Hand-Held, Super-Accurate Micrometer The new High-Accuracy Digimatic Digital Micrometer from Mitutoyo America Corp., Aurora, Ill., is billed as the first micrometer to offer 0.1-μm resolution, making high-accuracy measurement possible in a hand-held tool. It utilizes a patent-pending Absolute rotary sensor that is said to reduce instrument error to ±0.5μm. The Absolute system eliminates the need to reset the origin each time power is turned on, enabling measurement immediately upon start-up. In addition, the measurement origin can be preset to any value within the display range to reduce setup time and improve repeatability. The display can be zeroed at any position, making comparison measurement easier. Transference of body heat to the instrument is reduced by use of a removable heat shield, minimizing errors attributable to thermal expansion during hand- held measurements.

The Dyne-A-Grip IT cleans, etches, and function- alizes surfaces to enable inks, adhesives, paints, and other coatings to adhere to the treated surface The prod- uct, introduced at NPE2012 last month, is designed for lab environments, feasibility studies, and light produc- tion. It generates gentler and lower-temperature plasma than comparable production-grade units, which makes it suitable for delicate surfaces of plastics, rubber, silicone, and other materials.
