Kyzen VP Tom Forsythe to Discuss Cleaning Innovations at Joint Workshop in Dallas

May 28, 2013

Kyzen announces that Vice President Tom Forsythe will present at a joint cleaning and reliability workshop held in cooperation with Aqueous Technologies, FCT Assembly and Nordson DAGE. Tom’s presentation, entitled “Cleaning Technology Innovations Needed to Clean Highly Dense Assemblies,” will take place Thursday, June 13, 2013 from 10:45-11:45 a.m. at SpringHill Suites Dallas Richardson-Plano in Texas. Tom will discuss the collaborations between cleaning agent and cleaning equipment suppliers with assemblers to develop improved cleaning processes.

Flux residues bridge conductors making cleaning highly difficult. One of the most challenging issues is the selection of an appropriate cleaning process that will clean flux residues under these extremely tight geometries. Cleaning agents must be designed to remove strong covalent (hydrophobic) and weak ion (hydrophilic) bonds. Cleaning machines must be designed to move the cleaning agent to the source of the residue and either extract or create a flow channel to remove residues under component gaps. Tom will discuss recent solvent and aqueous cleaning agent and cleaning equipment innovations that have been developed to bridge this gap.

Tom has personally been involved in cleaning technology for more than 20 years. Since joining Kyzen in 1992, Tom has been personally involved in taking Kyzen from a start up to the industry leading, multi-national organization focused cleaning material technology that it is today. Tom is a graduate of the US Naval Academy and also has an MBA from Boston University. He is a frequent author and sought after presenter on the topic of high technology cleaning at industry forums across the globe. An active IPC and SMTA member, Tom is currently serving as a Vice President and Member of the Board of Directors for the Global SMTA organization. Kyzen is a corporate member of both SMTA & IPC, and Tom has participated in more than 100 industry trade fairs throughout the world.
