Cheapest But Effective Stencil Cleaner? | 25 August, 2008

There are a number of �low cost� stencil cleaners available. I am a manufacturer of one but I'll list a variety and let the others provide editorial on which is best. Basically, there are three technologies, manual cleaning (solvents and wipes), ultrasonic cleaning, and spray-in-air cleaning.

For manual cleaning, here is a partial list of suppliers:

Aqueous Technologies (Simple Green Stencil and Misprint Cleaner) www.aqueoustech.com

Microcare (various sprays) www.microcare.com

SmartSonic (440R) www.smartsonic.com

Spray-In-Air Stencil Cleaners:

EMC Global Technologies www.emcgti.com

Austin American Technology www.aat-corp.com

Ultrasonic Stencil Cleaners:

Aqueous Technologies www.aqueoustech.com

SmartSonic www.smartsonic.com

Pressure Products www.pressureproducts.com

Each of the above manufacturers offers a range of low-cost options (below $ 10K). Compare price, effectiveness, environmental impact, safety, and operating expense.

I hope this helps.
