Chemcut, the United States’ leading manufacturer and supplier of Develop/Etch/Strip equipment, announced that it has installed and commissioned multiple wet processing systems at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL). SEL is an industry leader in digital products and systems that protect, monitor and control electric power systems. The processing systems, including Develop/Etch/Strip (DES), are part of the state-of-the-art equipment operating at the company’s new printed circuit board factory in Moscow, Idaho USA.
The 162,000-square-foot facility features a highly automated and environmentally friendly process for fabricating printed circuit boards, which are vital components in the electronic devices SEL manufactures in Pullman, Washington; Lewiston, Idaho; Lake Zurich, Illinois; and West Lafayette, Indiana.
“The Chemcut team has not only demonstrated their ability to provide exceptional products and services, but also their commitment to manufacturing in the United States,” said SEL Engineering Director John Hendrickson. “Their willingness to collaborate and their outstanding customer service have been key to the success of this project.”
The first of two Chemcut DES lines is now operational in the new facility, which began production on March 1, 2023. The second line is scheduled to be delivered and installed later this summer.
Mike Soble, Chemcut Technical Sales Manager stated “Working hand in hand with the people at SEL in outfitting their new PCB facility in Moscow, ID has been a joy and privilege for Chemcut. The expertise of the SEL organization and its unprecedented level of cooperation and collaboration with Chemcut, has resulted in the successful completion and launching of an outstanding world class printed circuit board manufacturing facility.”
