IPC/SMTA High-Performance Electronics Assembly Cleaning Symposium Announces Panel Discussion on Electronic Equipment Designs

Sep 29, 2008

ROSEMONT, IL � Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce that Dave Torp, IPC Vice President of Technology and Standards, will moderate a collaborative panel discussion on cleaning equipment designs. The panelists will comprise cleaning equipment experts including Steve Stach of Austin American Technology, Mike Konrad of Aqueous Technologies, Jim Timler of Steolting/Trek, John Neiderman of Speedline Technologies, Roger Travato of Technical Devices, and Eric Larson of Crest Ultrasonic. The symposium, jointly sponsored by IPC and SMTA, will be held at Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare in Rosemont, IL on October 28-29, 2008.

The Process Cleaning Rate Theory holds that the static cleaning rate (chemical forces) plus the dynamic cleaning rate (mechanical forces) must be understood to deliver a clean part. The focus of this panel discussion is to provide users with an understanding of cleaning machines. Attendees will gain an understanding of the benefits and tradeoffs of cleaning machine options.

Topics addressed include machine design considerations to meet the evolving challenges of cleaning miniaturization in circuit designs and lead-free flux residues. The session will address fluid management and environmental considerations such as closed-loop processing and reduced fluid emissions. Cleaning fluid costs to operate the process, energy requirements, and footprint on the manufacturing floor also will be addressed.
