northern-lights

Inspired by the natural phenomena

Our brand refers to the northern origin of our solution. Aurion is an embedded system, that generates ionized air, which is blown to the cutting surface of the workpiece. Ionization is the process by which an atom or a molecule acquires a negative or positive charge by gaining or losing electrons. Similar to the process of Aurion, the Northern Lights (aka Aurora Borealis) occur in conjunction with air and electric charging. Electrically charged particles collide with the ionosphere of the Earth.
