The new Chemcut CC-8000 automated DES line includes the following features and capabilities:
- Thin Material Transport: The DES line will transport very thin and flexible material without the use of leaders.
- Excellent Etching Uniformity and Smaller Line / Space Features: The Chemcut CC-8000 system achieves fine feature formation by the unique design of the spray system and improved top side puddle management.
- Multiple Zone Control: Processing a ½ oz. over a 1 oz. panel is as simple as downloading the proper recipe.
- Recipe Driven Operation: This feature eliminates day to day, week to week, and month to month product variation due to improper machine set-up.
- In Line Filtration: The removal of the debris from the chemical baths helps to ensure process consistency and uniformity.
- Data Collection and Archiving: The system is configured for ease of adding a Data Logger to allow for real time and historical feedback and analysis. The data is time and date stamped and can be searched by time and date and/or product code.
- Remote Access via the Internet: Process Engineers can remotely create and share recipes between multiple facilities using any internet capable device. The machine can be accessed for diagnostic reasons or to implement programming enhancements.
Chemcut Corporation, founded in 1956, was the original developer of spray etching, a technique that made the chemical etching process practical for volume, as well as prototype production. Chemcut offers a complete line of spray etchers, developers, strippers, waste treatment systems, and auxiliary equipment. More than 15,000 Chemcut units are currently in operation around the world.
