Nordson MARCH Receives Vision and Innovation Awards at NEPCON China for its RollVIA Self-contained Vacuum Plasma System

May 31, 2018

Nordson MARCH, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), a global leader in plasma processing technology, announces that it has received the VISION Award from SMT China magazine and the Innovation Award from Electronics Manufacturing (EM) Asia magazine for its new-generation RollVIA™ plasma system. The awards were presented at NEPCON China, held in the Shanghai EXPO World Center, Shanghai, China, on April 24 and 25, 2018. The RollVIA™ plasma system is used for plasma applications such as surface activation for improved adhesion, carbon removal and descum/desmear for cleaner surfaces, and etchback, which removes a slight amount of dielectric contamination between internal copper planes during printed circuit board (PCB) production. The RollVIA provides uniform plasma treatment of substrates as thin as 25 microns. 

The RollVIA is a completely self-contained plasma system with production-proven roll-to-roll material handling for flexible PCB manufacturing. The vacuum system, plasma chamber, control electronics, and 40kHz power supply are housed in a single enclosure for cost effectiveness. The integrated roll-to-roll material handling system ensures precise control of roll speed, tension, and edge guidance for substrates. Optical-based edge guide detection allows for reliable control during rewind operations. Substrate loading is simple with easy access to the load and unload sections via three doors. The system is configured for vertical processing so that equal plasma treatment can be applied to both sides of the substrate, maximizing product quality and throughput. The fast vacuum pump down and process cycle times further add to the throughput and productivity. It's configurable with 1, 3, or 5 plasma cells to meet process requirements.

"Receiving these awards from SMT China and EM Asia magazines is especially meaningful to us because the China market is an extremely important one for Nordson MARCH," said Desmond Hor, sales director, Nordson MARCH. "Nordson MARCH has had offices in China for many years to provide complete engineering, application, and sales support. The RollVIA system fits the China market because it presents unique vacuum and gas flow technology, electrode designs, and superior temperature management. The careful balance of these critical design elements and process recipe parameters deliver a system that creates the most uniform treatment for key applications like desmear and landing pad cleaning."
