Surfx Technologies at Semicon® Europa

Surfx will be exhibiting at Semicon® Europa in Munich on November 14-17, 2017. We will introduce our new product, the AtomfloTM 500 outfitted with a 100-mm-wide argon plasma head. Please come see us at booth B1.1602, hosted by Novel Technology Transfer GmbH.

The 100-mm-wide argon plasma is truly a unique product that provides customers with the highest possible throughput for in-line surface treatment. The plasma is a capacitive discharge that uniformly fills the exit slit with a high concentration of reactive species. It provides for variable chemistry by selecting the process gas to feed with the argon. For example, 1.0% oxygen in argon rapidly cleans and activates glass, ceramic and polymer surfaces for bonding. By contrast, 1.0% hydrogen in argon quickly removes copper oxide from copper for subsequent die attach and wire bonding to lead frames.

The AtomfloTM 500 atmospheric pressure plasma system is an outstanding product for in-line surface treatment. It comes with the following features: low voltage, low temperature, handheld or robot driven, two process gas lines controlled with digital MFCs, automatic tuning of the RF matching network, and real-time monitoring and control of all the process parameters.

I look forward to seeing you at Semicon® Europa!

Composites Manufacturing 2014

Covington, KY, April 2014 – Dr. Thomas Williams was at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center this week for Composites Manufacturing 2014 presented by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.  Dr. Williams gave a presentation titled “Atmospheric Pressure Plasma as a Method for Improving Adhesive Bonding” during the Bonding Prep & Inspection Processes session.  His presentation topic was centered on the use of Surfx’s plasma products as a fast, safe and effective method for automating the surface preparation of structures composed of materials such as carbon-fiber-reinforced composite, stainless steel, aluminum, polyetheretherketone, BMI and others.  A detailed discussion of the bond strength improvements achieved with our plasma activation process was based on peer reviewed literature.  Please contact us for a copy of the presentation slides.
