Plasma Cleaning in the PCB Manufacturing process

Plasma cleaning is a dry & environmental friendly technique answering the needs of the printed circuit board (PCB) and electronic component assembly industry. It is a well-established technique for removing residue (desmearing) left behind by laser drilling of vias.

Established PCB Manufacture can incorporate our user friendly & cost-effective cleaning processes easily and efficiently. Our plasma cleaning machines feature multiple loading racks that ensure excellent uniformity across the PCB, between PCB’s and from process to process.

Plasma cleaning PCB’s

  • Plasma Cleaning of PCB’s prior to bonding
  • Plasma Activation of printed circuit boards prior to potting & encapsulation
  • Etching & desmearing of epoxy, flex-rigid and Teflon printed circuit boards
  • De-oxidation of gold contacts
