Reading time ( words)

Sono-Tek Corporation has promoted Chris Cichetti to vice president, applications engineering. Cichetti has been invaluable in shaping Sono-Tek’s application engineering team since its inception in 2008.

Starting as an application engineer for Sono-Tek’s Electronics and Advanced Energy division in 2008, Cichetti was appointed Senior Applications Engineer in 2010, and he became Applications Engineering Manager in 2016. Under his supervision, Sono-Tek’s Application Engineering team has grown to include four full time application engineers and an Applications Specialist Lab Manager, as well as various interns and support personnel.

“Chris’ group offers customers access to decades of accumulated process knowledge and ultrasonic coating expertise, providing a strong bridge between the sales and engineering teams at Sono-Tek,” said Steve Harshbarger, Sono-Tek’s president. “This enables a very streamlined and highly intelligent process for providing unique coating solutions that are tailored to each of our customers’ needs. With a proven track record of expanding the ultrasonic technology into several new markets and applications, Chris is extremely well suited to his new role as VP of Applications Engineering.”

Sono-Tek has been a world leader in ultrasonic coating equipment solutions since 1975. The company’s application engineers work closely with customers to specify the correct equipment from the very beginning, with the option of in-house laboratory testing to leverage process knowledge to optimize coating processes. This unparalleled level of support prior to installation means that every Sono-Tek ultrasonic coating system will perform as needed when installed.
