Nordson MARCH Plasma System Wins NPI Award
Dan Hartley, Sr. Process Technician, Nordson MARCH, operates the NPI Award-winning FlexVIA plasma system.
Concord, CA — Plasma processing technology company Nordson MARCH has received the New Product Introduction (NPI) Award for its FlexVIA Plasma System, a completely self-contained vacuum plasma system designed for maximum efficiency and cost-effective etch, desmear and surface activation treatment of flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs).

The award, presented by Printed Circuit Design & Fab magazine, was determined by judging criteria that included innovation, cost effectiveness, environmental friendliness, ease-of-use, speed, throughput, design and performance.

The FlexVIA Plasma System is used during PCB manufacture to uniformly treat the inner surface layer of flex PCBs prior to lamination for improved adhesion and reliability. The system uses a space-saving, compact chassis and an advanced horizontal electrode design to provide optimum material alignment. 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 to maximize cost savings.
