Intuitive software

The nebular device ships with an intuitive touch-based control application specifically designed to adjust every aspect of your spray task without wasting time.

Main features:

  • Responsive UI: The user interface offers a preview function for the planned spray sequence and displays the task progress as well as the machine state in real time
  • Profiles: the built-in profile manager allows for easy and fast switching between user-defined spray sequences
  • Process Marks: user defined process positions are a powerful tool to adapt the automatically generated spray sequences to the individual needs of the user
  • Move-by-Touch: in addition to traditional input methods, the touch-based user interface allows for precise positioning of the spray head in real time simply by dragging a finger over the display
  • Safety features: sophisticated safety functions prevent the accidental execution of many potentially dangerous tasks

Be ready for your next task

Fast processing

Fast speed ramps reducing overspray area and enhance production time.

Simple cleaning

No wasting time by hidden tubing to minimize dust contamination.

Less overspray

Toward the Continuous Production of Multigram Quantities of Highly Uniform Supported Metallic Nanoparticles and Their Application for Synthesis of Superior Intermetallic Pt-Alloy ORR Electrocatalysts | 2021

A fast and facile pulse combustion (PC) method that allows for the continuous production of multigram quantities of high-metal-loaded and highly uniform supported metallic nanoparticles (SMNPs) is presented. Namely, various metal on carbon (M/C) composites have been prepared by using only three feedstock components: water, metal–salt, and the supporting material.
