Plasma Etch, Inc.

Manufacturer of surface deposition and plasma surface cleaning and etching equipment offering reliable, repeatable cleaning and etching of PCBs and other materials.

Manufacturer of Assembly Equipment, Component Preparation, Contract Manufacturer, Research Institute/Laboratory

Plasma Etch has satisfied our customers for over 30 years by designing and manufacturing Plasma Etching Systems right here in the USA. We have the honor of being an industry pioneer innovator with Process Temperature Control and Electrostatic Shielding with our Plasma Cleaning Systems. We offer features that are unique to the Plasma Etch cleaning systems product line, including features which we developed and now provide exclusively to our customers.

Our PCB customers choose Plasma Etch to provide them with reliable, repeatable cleaning and etching of their circuit boards, eliminating costly and messy chemical etching processes prior to further processing and plating.

Our Chip packaging customers rely on us to ensure the utmost pull and shear strength in the wire bonding applications thus improving encapsulation, flow and bond.

A dry process, plasma leaves no hazardous wastes & no residue on the product. Possibly the SAFEST surface treatment, both to the environment and the substrate. Dramatically increases adhesive & bond strength. Contract Plasma Service also available.

Plasma etching technology offers a wide range of cost-effective, safe, and environmentally sound solutions to problems faced by manufacturers in the electronic (PCP boards & Semiconductors), industrial, medical, and solar panel sectors.

Plasma Etch, Inc. was founded in 1980 as a small service facility supplying “Contract Plasma Services” to the electronics industry in California. The ability to perfect plasma etching and a close working relationship to many industries led to the creation of Plasma Etch, Inc. Our company’s sole purpose is to serve our customers by providing equipment and services that meet their every criteria for quality.

Plasma Etch, Inc. held several patents to the invention, development and manufacturing of groundbreaking innovations which have paved the way for plasma technology and the enhancement of quality manufacturing everywhere.
