New MK-II Plasma Etching System Features 24″ by 18″ Horizontal Shelf

Carson City, NV – Plasma Etch Inc, a leader in plasma treatment, recently introduced a new low cost version of the company’s patented MK-II plasma etching system. Designed exclusively for low volume and startup PCB manufacturers, the MK-II ECO is an unbeatable value, priced at only $49,900. It features a single 24” by 18” horizontal shelf and is capable of desmear and etch back.

The company has already seen a lot of interest from flexible circuit manufacturers. The horizontal shelf allows flexible circuits to be placed flat on the shelf, eliminating shorts between the electrode and the chamber – a common problem with vertical etching systems.

The company website explains “The MK-II ECO plasma etching system offers Plasma Etch’s industry leading technological advantages at used system pricing. Features you can’t get anywhere else…Our systems produce consistent, uniform, and reliable etch rates obtainable across an entire board’s surface.”

This system offers the same capabilities as the standard MK-II system.

The MK-II ECO may be viewed on their website: https://www.plasmaetch.com/MK-II-ECO-Low-Cost-Plasma-PCB-Etching-System.php
