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 vials.

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 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
