  • Susonence a new multi-partner project developing advanced sonochemical processes to reduce chemical usage and decrease waste in the PCB and metal finishing industries

Circuit World paper
Goosey M., Circuit World, Volume 38, Issue 1 p38-39 ISSN: 0305-6120.
Abstract:-
The key aims of the Susonence project are to implement ultrasonically enhanced surface modification processes for removing surface layers, etching, and texturing a variety of widely used substrates (metallic, polymer, and ceramic) with greatly decreased chemical consumption that will enable a step change in competitiveness within the surface finishing and PCB manufacturing sectors, whilst significantly decreasing environmental impact. Susonence is a first application project bridging the gap between research and the marketplace and will take an already demonstrated new technology, via the design and scale-up of the ultrasound treatment systems, towards successful, economically viable industrial processes for both of the PCB target sectors.

  • Susonence: Reducing Chemical Usage & Decreasing Waste

PCB 007 Paper


A new European multi-partner development project has recently commenced to introduce more efficient and cleaner production into the PCB and metal finishing industries. The project will employ sonochemical processes that decrease hazardous chemical usage and minimise the amounts of waste generated. Energy consumption will also be reduced by the use of new processes that operate at lower temperatures for shorter times.
