Concord, CA, May 14, 2009 – Nordson MARCH, the global leader in advanced plasma treatment systems, announced today that it has qualified its advanced ProVIA™ plasma system at a leading European PCB manufacturer. The ProVIA™ plasma system will be used primarily for PCB through-hole and blind via desmear and etch-back applications.

“The ProVIA™ plasma system’s superior performance and value allows our customers to continue to adopt its advanced plasma treatment capabilities compared to older technology, even during these challenging economic times,” said James Getty, Director of Applications and Business Development at Nordson MARCH. “Simply put, the ProVIA™ plasma system delivers the high etch rates and excellent etch uniformity that our advanced PCB manufacturing customers require.”

“The ProVIA™ offers a reduced cost of ownership (COO) thanks in part to an optimized plasma chamber design that consumes much less gas and electrical power, while completing its processing in half the time,” said Peter Bierhuis, President of Nordson MARCH. “This patented design allows the ProVIA™ plasma system to consume more than 80% less process gas, versus a comparable process using older technology. Not only does this contribute to its lower overall COO, but it makes the ProVIA™ plasma system an environmentally-friendly “green” system by dramatically reducing the amount of exhaust gas.”

The ProVIA™ plasma system is designed to meet the growing market demand for advanced PCB plasma treatment. The high performance of the ProVIA™ plasma system was not possible with previous technology platforms, and Nordson MARCH is the only company able to offer the ProVIA™ plasma system’s patented plasma treatment technology to its customers.
