Reading time ( words)

KYZEN's Mike Bixenman, Ph.D., will present during Session S20, entitled Cleaning, on January 30, 2019 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. during the IPC APEX EXPO 2019. Dr. Bixenman will present the paper entitled, "Methodology for Developing Cleaning Process Parameters," co-authored by Vladimir Sitko, PBT-Works and Mark McMeen, STI Electronics.

Electronic assembly processes range from the very simple to the very complex and involve a wide range of materials. Each step in the process and each material used will have some impact on the assembly, most affecting the cleaning process window.

The purpose of this research paper is to determine the feasibility of the five-step method for developing the cleaning process window followed by validating acceptability of the electronic assembly.

Dr. Bixenman has more than 20 years of experience in the design of electronic assembly cleaning materials and process integration. He was the chair of the 2008 IPC/SMTA Cleaning Symposium and is the current chair of the IPC Cleaning Handbook Task Group. Dr. Bixenman holds four earned degrees including a Doctorate in Business Administration.

New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
