2018 PCMI Short Course

Hilton Long Beach Hotel
Long Beach, CA, USA
9:00 am – 4:00 pm

The A-Z of Photochemical Machining

Presented by: David Allen, Emeritus Professor, Cranfield University

Photochemical Machining (PCM) is a multi-stage process involving photoresist imaging and chemical etching technology that requires strict control at all stages for the successful manufacturing of high quality products at prices. By popular request of the PCMI membership, this new one-day short course has been specifically designed to educate delegates with a limited practical experience or theoretical knowledge of PCM. The course covers the basics of the PCM process through all its stages from “Design” to “Finished Product”.

The course will cover both technical and economic aspects of PCM and the “buzz words” of PCM from A to Z in an informative but light-hearted approach, as the course is intended as an enjoyable experience in addition to being an educational exercise.

Particular attention will be paid to:

  • PCM products and the role of PCM in the economic production of parts,
  • Liquid and dry film photoresists – how they are used and patterning techniques for the future,
  • Chemical etching and the basics of etchant regeneration,
  • Inspection, defects and quality control.

All delegates will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance on completion of the Short Course.

Fees | US Dollars $
PCMI Members – $250.00
Non-Members – $500.00
