Nordson MARCH Intros New Plasma Treatment for Flex PCBs
Plasma treatment system.
Concord, CA — New from Nordson MARCH is its new FlexVIA Plasma System, a completely self-contained vacuum plasma system designed for maximum efficiency and cost-effective treatment of flex materials. Plasma is used to treat the inner surface layer of flexible printed circuit boards prior to lamination, for improved adhesion and reliability. The dual-rack chamber accommodates up to eighteen 20 x 24-in. (508 x 610mm) panels in a single cycle. Both sides of the flex material surface area are treated in a single-step process enabling a rate of 80-120 units per hour (UPH).

The FlexVIA System has a space-saving, compact chassis 1651 x 1283mm deep (65 x 94.5-in.) and an advanced horizontal electrode design to provide optimum material alignment for uniform plasma treatment. Utilizing patented plasma technology, the system does not require the use of temperature control, a blower, or expensive fluorine gases. Environmentally friendly and cost-effective gas plasma solutions, such as argon (Ar) and oxygen (O2), are utilized for additional cost saving benefits.

The system is easily loaded with the flexible materials into the chamber  through two, optimum height, easy-access, front-loading doors with a maximum loading height of 1310mm (51.55-in.). Convenient carts smoothly slide the racks in and out of the system. The loading racks also include versatile slide-out trays to accommodate a wide range of flexible material sizes. The system is controlled by an intuitive touch screen GUI with a one-button start feature.
