SCHMID Group Installs PlasmaLine at Hofstetter PCB AG


Reading time ( words)

SCHMID Group installed first PlasmaLine comprising ICP etch and sputter deposition of its Korean JV SCHMID AVACO at Hofstetter PCB AG in Switzerland.

It is PlasmaLine D-R tool intended for process development and small scale production (up to 20 half-panels per hours for upgraded tool).

PlasmaLine is a series of modular inline plasma systems for touch-free, simultaneous double-sided or single-sided vertical processing of high end HDI+ PCBs and IC substrates with a capacity of up to 4 panels/min. By combining etch and sputtering process modules, the system can be configured flexibly for almost any application. 

These advantages make the PlasmaLine to a new state of the art solution for high frequency applications, mSAP, SAP and embedding boards:

- High flexibility of materials which can be processed

- Increased capabilities of high copper adhesion

- Low roughness

- High energy savings

Solder Mask Tack Dry

11/08/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
As a general rule, the tack-dry temperature should be as low as possible; in other words, it should only be as high as necessary. If the temperature is too low, the evaporation rate for the solvent will be to slow, and the solder mask will not dry in a reasonable amount of time. If the temperature is too high, however, the dry time certainly will be excellent, but it could create a solder mask lock-in with repercussions by the developing time.
