Surfx Technologies Leaves No Excuse to Skip Plasma Surface Preparation for Critical Processes

Reading time ( words)

Surfx Technologies, LLC, the most trusted name in atmospheric plasma, is pleased to offer its STA-10iL Automated Plasma Machine designed for high-volume manufacturing. The STA-10iL offers a slim footprint, fast lead times and flexible configurations, leaving no excuse to skip plasma surface preparation for critical processes.

Inside the STA-10iL, a three-axis gantry selectively applies the most advanced atmospheric plasma to substrates. Surfx’s Atomflo™ controller operates with low voltage, radio frequency (RF) power, and generates a uniform, particle-free and electrically neutral plasma that is safe on the most sensitive electronics. 

Surfx Technologies’ versatile conveyor design allows for rapid surface preparation of electronics, including all types of IC packages. Whether for cleaning dies, silicon wafers, medical devices or molded plastic parts, the STA-10iL easily can be configured for any job with a working volume of 550 x 760 x 60 mm.

Surfx argon plasma systems clean and activate a wide variety of material surfaces, including glass, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors and metals.

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.

Cavity Board SMT Assembly Challenges (Part 1)

06/26/2019 | By Dudi Amir and Brett Grossman, Intel Corp.
The concept behind Component-in-Cavity (CiC) is straightforward. If the tallest component(s) on the motherboard can be placed into a recession created in the motherboard, their thickness relative to the components on the surface of the PCB will thus effectively be reduced. While this concept may be straightforward, its implementation is not. That implementation is the focus of this paper. Read on.
