MiniGun torch

Minigun Plasma Torch

Originally developed in 1995 for thermal spray coating systems, this compact, co-axial plasma torch known as the MINIGUN is our most compact and inexpensive solution for thermal applications. The MINIGUN can be fitted for radial injection of powders into the plasma plume. Used extensively by our own team for internal lab and pilot scale work, the MINIGUN is perfectly suited for a research and development environment, as well as for small-scale production. The MINIGUN offers an economical, flexible solution for thermal treatment of metals, for nanotechnology, and for small-scale high-tech material fabrication. This torch provides a wide range of solutions to address customer requirements in both academic and industrial environments.
