Printed Circuit Board Cleaning Our plasma cleaning systems provide reliable plasma cleaning including desmearing and etchback of printed circuit boards prior to electroless and through hole plating. Our plasma cleaners eliminate the problems associated with wet chemicals and acids.
Suggested Plasma System »


Flip Chip Plasma Cleaning Our flip chip customers rely on our plasma cleaners not only to ensure the ultimate pull and shear strength in wire bonding, but also to improve encapsulate flow and bond by increasing the surface energy of the lead frame or BGA package. Plasma cleaning / plasma reactive ion etching can greatly augment adhesion results.
Suggested Plasma System »


Connector Plasma CleaningOur connector manufacturer customers enjoy the quick and easy plasma cleaning preparation prior to bonding metal to plastic assemblies, reducing hand priming and de-burring for a superior product. This results in a pristine plasma clean surface free of contaminants and oxides, enabling a high surface energy bonding site to adhere.
Suggested Plasma System »


Medical Device Plasma CleaningOur medical device manufacturers delight in the ease of bonding dissimilar polymers, such as silicon and Teflon (PTFE) to metals like Gold, Titanium, and Nitinol, for the preparation of implanting modern medical devices in the human body. Plasma systems increase surface energy which removes contamination with excellent results.
Suggested Plasma System »


Semiconductor Plasma CleaningThe semiconductor industry, government research labs, and universities are using our reactive ion etching systems (RIE) to quickly strip resist and plasma clean other contamination from wafers up to 300mm. Other applications for our plasma systems include anisotropic (directional) reactive ion etching to form MEMS.
