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.
Even if it is more appropriate to use fully automatic cleaning systems for these tasks, there is sometimes the necessity ro manually clean SMD tools such as squeegees and spatulas stained with residue from solder paste and adhesive right after use in order to avoid hardening and to ensure trouble-free use again.
Sometimes other manufacturing tools also have to be cleaned manually e.g. of burned-in fluxes or rosin-free-free, no-clean flux residues, while e.g. process areas of wave solder systems or reflow ovens can only be cleaned manually.
