PE-50 XL Benchtop Plasma Cleaner

PE-50 XL Benchtop Low Pressure Plasma System

The PE-50 XL is a feature packed, low cost, entry level option for low pressure plasma systems.

This is a robust machine that is perfect for small production facilities, research labs, universities, medical facilities, or any industry needing a small-scale, cost-effective plasma processing solution. It has all the features of the PE-50, but also features a larger chamber size for larger processing applications, including production level plasma surface modification.

If you are looking for a fully automated solution, our PE-50 XL Venus plasma cleaner combines the high value of the PE-50 XL with fully automated processing. The Venus system includes the same laptop control found on our larger systems.
