Kyzen's Bixenman Held Successful Discussion at SMTA Michigan Chapter Presentation

May 20, 2009

NASHVILLE - May 2009 - Kyzen, a world leading provider of environmentally responsible precision cleaning products for electronics and high-technology manufacturing operations, announces that Mike Bixenman held a successful discussion at the Michigan Chapter of SMTA's Technical Presentation on PCB Cleanliness and Cleaning Technologies in Detroit, MI. His presentation, titled �PCB Cleanliness and Cleaning Technologies,� took place Friday, May 15, 2009 from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m.

The focus of Bixenman's presentation was on change and meeting today's cleaning challenges. He discussed the need for cleaning due to the implementation of miniaturization and utilization of lead-free technology. Bixenman also discussed process integration, and the importance of selecting the proper chemistry to match process needs and equipment. The discussion was well attended with more than 40 members in attendance, and well received. The audience discussion lasted for an hour, with many thought-provoking questions asked and answered.

�A few years back, cleaning was considered a nuisance issue, due to the success of no-clean solder materials. With today's leading-edge circuit designs, reduced spacing between conductors increases cleaning relevance. Cleaning materials and cleaning machine companies are working together to design processes that meet that challenge,� said Bixenman.

Bixenman is CTO of Kyzen and current Chairperson of the IPC Cleaning and Alternatives Handbook and IPC/SMTA High Performance Cleaning Symposium. The SMTA membership is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
