kolb offers as manufacturer and specialist for cleaning in the electronics producing industry detergent soaked tissues e.g. for the thorough manual cleaning of squeegees and spatulas as well as manual oven, flux and rosin cleaners.
Although it makes more sense to use fully automated cleaning equipment for all zools cleaning these tasks, there is sometimes a need to manually clean SMD tools such as squeegees and scrapers that are contaminated with residues of solder paste and adhesive immediately after use to prevent the contamination from hardening and to ensure trouble-free reuse.
Other production tools may also have to be cleaned manually, e.g. of burnt-in fluxes or rosin-free no-clean flux residues. Process areas of wave soldering systems or reflow ovens, for example, can only be cleaned manually.
