Uyemura International Corp. (Southington, Conn.) and Europlasma NV (Oudenaarde, Belgium) have formed a partnership to bring advanced vacuum plasma treatment technology (Nanofics) to electronic manufacturing companies and board-makers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The immediate focus of this important partnership is twofold: This low pressure plasma technology will allow electronic manufacturing companies to apply conformal coatings to electronic components, and most notably, to fully assembled products such as headsets, hearing aids and mobile phones. It will also provide an effective and cost-efficient surface finish to protect board surfaces prior to assembly. For this reason, Uyemura says it is an excellent addition to the company’s line of final finishes.

Europlasma will install its plasma system at the Uyemura Tech Center in Southington, Conn., in late October, and train Uyemura technical staff in system operation. In addition to the application of Nanofics nanocoating technology, the system will also be used for low pressure plasma cleaning, etching, and activation.

Functional Zr, α-Ta, and (α-β) Ta Thick Coatings Obtained by Original Arc-Evaporator

Novel plasma-clustered deposition technique, called PVD Droplets, as well as its main principles of operation were described. New types of obtained thick, over 20 μm, functional coatings basing on Ta and Zr have been presented. Results of research in physic-chemical properties of the coating materials are listed including preliminary studies of superconductive properties. Comparative evaluation between of obtained coatings and sample CVD coating was made.
