Nordson MARCH Announces New AP-600 and AP-300 Bench-Top Plasma Systems to Replace PX-Series

2009 News

01 Dec 2009


Concord, CA  Nordson MARCH, the global leader in advanced plasma cleaning and treatment systems, announced today it has released the AP-600 and AP-300 bench-top plasma systems. 

The AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems are designed as “medium” and “small” versions of the best-in-class “large” AP-1000 plasma system.  Based on advanced AP-1000 architecture, the AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems will replace Nordson MARCH’s current PX-series, which are currently the leading bench-top plasma systems in the world. 

The AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems are designed to be high-performance, low-cost plasma systems for cleaning and treating electronic components, small circuit boards, and medical & life science devices.  In addition to large production facilities, the AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems are well suited for laboratories, universities, and R&D centers that require the most advanced plasma systems available, but are also highly sensitive to the cost of capital equipment. 

“The AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems are clean-sheet designs, which leverage the best-in-class technology from the AP-1000 plasma system.  They are very advanced for their size and cost,said James Getty, Director of Applications and Business Development at Nordson MARCH.  The systems were designed to replace our venerable PX-series, which will soon be discontinued.  We’re excited to release the AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems at this time, as the market is looking for advanced plasma systems with an extremely attractive price point.” 

Both the AP-600 and AP-300 plasma systems are on sale now, and available for customers world-wide through Nordson MARCH's extensive sales and service network.
