Kyzen, together with HumiSeal, Stoelting and Nordson ASYMTEK, will present a cleaning and reliability workshop hosted by ACI Technologies on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Philadelphia, PA. The free workshop, entitled “Cleaning and Conformal Coating Printed Circuit Boards,” will address the latest products, processes, equipment and techniques for the cleaning and conformal coating of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Kyzen’s North American Sales Manager Debbie Carboni will present “Cleaning technology Innovations Needed to Clean Highly Dense Assemblies.”
As components reduce in size, the distance from the board to the underside of the component reduces. 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. Debbie will discuss new solvent and aqueous cleaning agent and cleaning equipment innovations that have been developed to bridge this gap. To achieve the process objective, cleaning agent and cleaning equipment suppliers collaborate with assemblers to develop improved cleaning processes.
Debbie Carboni joined Kyzen in 2007 as a Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. A 15-year veteran of the precision cleaning industry, Debbie’s primary expertise is in the cleaning sector of the electronics industry. Recognizing Debbie’s talents and expertise, Kyzen soon named her North American Sales Manager for Kyzen’s Electronics Division. Debbie serves as an active member of the SMTA Philadelphia Chapter, where she received an award for outstanding individual support and contributions for 2009. Debbie actively contributes as an author of technical papers that focus on precision cleaning and wave soldering and presents at various forums and workshops across North America. She brings a unique understanding of cleaning equipment and processes, making her a valuable resource for addressing emerging cleaning challenges.
