Plasma Etch, Inc. expands FREE sample plasma cleaning

Logo-Color

CARSON CITY, NV – Plasma Etch Inc, a leader in plasma innovation, recently expanded a free sample plasma cleaning program. The company is offering free plasma cleaning to any company, government agency, or university to demonstrate the abilities of their products.

Overnight shipping is available to customers in the United States, allowing next day processing in the customer’s own facility. “The free sample program allows potential customers to see the advantages of plasma for themselves,” say company representatives.

Plasma cleaning is popular on materials including glass, plastic, rubber, and even metal. By removing 100% of organic material, the company touts the ability to improve the strength of bonds.

The company is also able to modify the surface of a sample to improve its ability to be printed on. This allows printing on surfaces that are generally too glossy to allow printing without smearing.

Plasma is the most environmentally friendly way to clean and etch. There are no chemicals involved and no hazardous waste to dispose of.

Have you seen the future of etching?

Have you seen the future of etching?  The Magna Series PCB etching system is the first plasma etching system used in the manufacturing production of PCBs without CF4! Our patented system uses only 3-phase power and compressed air. Magna

The technology inside the Magna completely eliminates the need for CF4 gas which is presently used by PCB manufacturers’ plasma etching systems, including desmear and etch back systems.

Magna is the next generation replacement for our time proven MK-II line of systems for desmear and etch back applications.  As the results show, Magna sets new market standards in several key areas.

Magna’s revolutionary technology provides faster etch times, lower operating cost, lower power usage, and incredible process uniformity not achievable using any other technology.  Magna provides precision and uniform etching on both sides of panels simultaneously.

The Magna is a great choice benefiting both customers and our environment. Magna customers experience higher levels of uniformity and lower operating costs. The environment also benefits from a reduction in green house gas exhaust.

Plasma Bonding

Plasma-Bonding-Benefits-small

Plasma Bonding

A strong, reliable bond couldn’t be more important for the longevity of today’s products.  Today’s plasma technology can reduce electrical resistance, while increasing physical strength of solders and bonding agents.  Bonding two dissimilar materials is especially difficult, but plasma helps secure a superior bond every time.

Increased Strength

Plasma treatment allows a strong bond between two dissimilar materials, such as a wood and rubber.  The plasma treated surfaces are cleaned to the atomic level, allowing a similar bonding agent to properly bond to both materials.

As a general rule, a line pull test can measure the bond strength.

Better Printability

Printing on glossy surfaces such as plastic or Teflon has the potential to result in a poor quality.  Plasma treatment cleans and modifies the surface so that ink will apply to a glossy rubber as if it were paper!

Plasma can even allow printing colors on Teflon!

Failure Rate Reduction

Plasma cleaning and surface modification can reduce failure rates among PCB manufacturing, including wire bonding.  This results in more reliable products through stronger bonds and less electronic resistance.

The surface modification effects are not permanent. The time available for processing ranges from just a few hours to a few days. Although the effects of the plasma treatment are temporary, they allow plenty of time to complete the manufacturing or printing process on the materials being treated.

How Plasma Cleaning Works

Plasma Cleaning made Simple

How Plasma Cleaning Works!

1. Suck out the Air!

Plasma is created in a vacuum. The first step is to suck all of the air out of the chamber.

2. Add Some Gas!

Cleaning is done with Oxygen or Argon gas. Highly accurate valves control the gas flow into the chamber.

3. RF Power!

The plasma is created with radio frequency (RF) power is introduced to the chamber.

4. Plasma!

Without air, the RF reacts with the gas and creates plasma! The fourth state of matter!

5. Vent it!

After the plasma cycle is complete, the plasma cleaner automatically turns off the gas and slowly vents air back into the chamber. Perfectly clean every time!
