Concord, CA, July 15, 2004 – Nordson MARCH announces its twentieth year anniversary of providing gas plasma treatment equipment to customers worldwide. Founded in 1984, their mission is to continuously expand its product offerings to provide innovative, quality solutions for the semiconductor, PCB, medical and webbed material industries.
In 1999, March Instruments was acquired by Nordson Corporation. In December 2002, Advanced Plasma Systems (APS), another Nordson subsidiary, merged with March Instruments. APS is a leader in gas plasma, specializing in the manufacture of plasma treatment systems used in the fabrication of PCB and medical products. With this merge, Nordson MARCH now offers a complete range of plasma systems that address all markets.
New packaging technologies, such as stacked die, QFN, SIP and flip chip demand contaminant-free active surfaces prior to die attach, wire bonding, encapsulation and other processes. "Nordson MARCH is developing flexible systems with universal architectures that accommodate a wide assortment of material handling configurations," reports Peter Bierhuis, President. "We're seeing a growing need in the semiconductor market for increased process flexibility and higher throughput equipment."
Over the years, Nordson MARCH has earned several industry awards that recognize their innovations in plasma technology, including the 2001 Excellence Award for their ITRAK series, the 2002 Advanced Packaging award for the XTRAK Series, and the Excellence Award in 2003 for the XTRAK-IFP series.
