PE-100 Plasma Etch Benchtop Plasma System Description:

Compact Plasma Etcher

The PE-100 is a complete system with vacuum pump designed to be reliable yet inexpensive enough to allow startup companies, medical labs and R&D facilities the opportunity to experience Plasma Etch technology.

The all aluminum chamber features over 240 square inches of active processing surface with the three level standard configuration. The clean design features an industrial powder coated frame to guard your processing environment from contamination.

When using the PE-100 as Reactive Ion Etch the electrodes are specially designed for directional plasma, which means the plasma contacts the substrates in a downward flow or drilling effect. This process is primarily used for drilling microvias or cleaning of small variations that are unattainable with chemicals since liquid flow is often restricted in these small spaces, such as vias.

Cleaning with Plasma yields increased uniformity of any surface treated and reduces or eliminates unwanted and often expensive chemical waste. Operation is through a simple to use, intuitive touch screen interface and offer safe and repeatable processes. We offer custom electrode configurations including RIE (Reactive Ion Etch) and process temperature control.
