Product cleaning is described as the cleaning of highly sensible components and is an integrated part of the value-added chain. This includes among other the demanding cleaning of assembled PCBs, Hybrids and DCB’s and misprinted PCBs (single side assembled).
Boards (assembled / mounted PCBs) must be cleaned thoroughly of production residues and possible environmental and handling dirt to ensure a reliable further processing respectively a trouble-free performance.
The trend towards miniaturization while increasing the reliability and operation of electronics in high temperature environments has driven the development of ceramic substrates.
Especially because of high power requirements these components must be absolutely free of production residues for further working processes such as wire bonding, coating or varnishing.
