Tools cleaning tasks

Tools Cleaning covers all other cleaning processes that immediately affect the value-added chain. It includes fine cleaning misprints (bare boards) as well as stencils screens and PumpPrints, but also the maintenance cleaning of carriers, solder frames, filters, tubes, soldering ovens etc.


Printer screen cleaning

Optimal cleaning of precision screens is a must as well in electronics as in the solar industry to assure reproducible quality and low production rejects.

Stencil cleaning

Optimal cleaning of stencils (framed or frameless stencils) as well as VectorGuard stencils is a must as well in electronics as in the solar industry to assure reproducible quality and low production rejects.

PumpPrint cleaning

Optimal cleaning of PumpPrint stencils made of solvent resistant plastic is a must in electronics industry to assure reproducible quality and low production rejects.

Stencil underside cleaning

In addition to the machinery cleaning of the entire stencil, the stencil underside or flipside cleaning right in the printer is an important factor for a reproducible error-free printing result.

Solder frames cleaning

Solder frames need to be cleaned mainly from flux residues on a regular basis in order to reduce production rejects and to maintain the tools.

Solder carriers cleaning

Solder carriers need to be cleaned mainly from flux residues on a regular basis in order to reduce production rejects and to maintain the tools.

Solder pallets cleaning

Solder pallets need to be cleaned mainly from flux residues on a regular basis in order to reduce production rejects and to maintain the tools.

Soldering systems cleaning

Condensate residues, oils and greases in (wave) soldering systems and SMD reflow ovens, which can develop gradually, lead to reduction of diameters and thus to changes of air circulation parameters.

Condensation filter cleaning

Condensate traps, filters, coolers, cyclones, trays, reflow ovens, wave and selective solder systems - all these components must be cleaned regularly and thoroughly to maximize productivity.

PCB magazines, ESD boxes, container cleaning

ESD boxes, storage containers and magazines for the transport and storage of PCBs / assembled PCBs, bare boards or wafers need to be cleaned regularly and thoroughly to avoid secondary contamination of sensitive components and areas.

ESD areas cleaning

To avoid ESD damage to electronic assemblies or components with high internal resistance they have to be manufactured, handled, packaged and stored in an ESD protected environment.

Machinery parts cleaning

Components of production systems are often contaminated with condensate, flux, colophony, fat, grease oil etc., which easily disturbs the reliability of production processes.

Manual cleaning of SMD tools

SMD tools such as squeegees and spatulas stained with residue from solder paste and adhesive need to be cleaned right after use in order to avoid hardening and to ensure trouble-free use again.
