The overall package includes machines and systems for solder resist development, for chemical surface cleaning and for chemical etching and stripping. The total order, which is divided into several individual items, already reaches a volume of around EUR 1.2 million with the first delivery.

ILFA is thus consistently pursuing its modernization course, which envisages an investment volume of more than EUR 2 million per year and is intended to secure its competitive position in the market in the long term.
