About Us

Product range imagePlasma and Surface Science

Henniker a leading manufacturer of plasma treatment systems for cleaning, surface activation to improve adhesion, and functional nano-scale coating.

Our innovative plasma treatment equipment is trusted globally in both critical industrial manufacturing settings and by leading academic research groups where it is used in biomedical research, life sciences, energy storage, filtration and many other areas of materials science in general.

Founded in 2008, we design and manufacture innovative plasma surface treatment systems and processes that bring immediate and lasting benefits to our customers, both industrial and academic.  Our products range from low-cost bench-top plasma cleaners to high throughput production scale equipment for surface activation and for the deposition of nano-scale coatings.

Plasma surface treatment is capable of producing unique properties over the entire surface of any material that is processed. Material properties are greatly enhanced, adding significant functional and commercial value to a product and/or replacing other costly and inefficient process steps. Plasma treatments take just minutes and there are no harmful waste products.

 Driven by expertise

If you think that your product may benefit from the unique effects that only plasma treatments can deliver, we have a number of options for you including;

    Let’s discuss your application and then we will provide a quick, no-nonsense, free-of-charge feasibility study.
    We carry a range of our standard equipment on stock at any one time and available at great rates for immediate dispatch. We even offset part of the rental payment against eventual outright purchase.
    Our technical staff will be happy to discuss contract treatments, from small one-off batches to regular, large throughput requirements.
    We have invested significantly in laboratory facilities to assess, test and investigate all aspects of plasma surface modification on a wide range of materials. Coupled with extensive in-house and real-world knowledge, we can usually deliver a tailored treatment quickly and efficiently to suit your individual your product or production needs.
