Plasma Solutions for Hard Disk Drive Manufacturing

Plasma is an enabling technology in the manufacturing of components used to assemble hard disk drives for data storage, including disk drive suspensions, thin film read/write heads and magnetic media. Typical plasma applications for these advanced devices includes device cleaning, photoresist descum, stripping of materials such as photoresist and polyimide, etching unique materials and removing contamination.
