American Standard Circuits Installs New Plasma Etching System


Reading time ( words)

American Standard Circuits has recently installed a new Model MK II Plasma Etching System from Plasma Etch.

The Plasma Etch MK-II plasma etching system offers technological advantages such as the unique combination of process temperature control and electrostatic shielding. Both work in harmony to produce the most consistent, most uniform, and most reliable etch rates obtainable across an entire board's surface.

The MK-II is an excellent choice for use in industrial clean room settings as a plasma etching system and works very well for treating flexible circuits. Flexible circuits may be placed on the horizontal shelves to prevent movement and shorting between electrodes.

“After a great deal of research, we felt that this was the best system for us to invest in at this time,” commented President and CEO Anaya Vardya. “The fact is that in the past three years our flex, rigid-flex and mixed material business has tripled making the addition of this system more important than ever. As always, our goal at American Standard Circuits is to provide our customers with the very best process solutions available in the industry today, and this plasma etching system represents just that.”

The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

06/03/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
