Nordson MARCH's ModVIA Plasma System is a fully integrated, flexible system that doubles its capacity from 4 to 8 cells (8-16 panels) to easily accommodate manufacturing production growth and to increase capacity for production demands. The compact design and small footprint save valuable floor space while delivering time-tested results and proven technology to treat printed circuit boards for desmear, etchback, and to provide surface activation. This innovative, cost effective plasma system fits the needs of small- to medium-sized businesses or R&D institutions that process low-volume, high-mix products.
The NPI award, sponsored by Circuits Assembly and Printed Circuit Design and Fab, part of UP Media Group, recognizes creativity and innovation, compatibility with existing technology, cost-effectiveness, expected reliability, flexibility, performance, and user-friendliness.
