KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, is thrilled to announce that after a short intermission, the highly anticipated Tech 2 Tech series is returning. During the short break, the KYZEN team worked diligently to create a new and improved structure and design as well as how the sessions are created and received by the public.
Previously, Tech 2 Tech required viewers to register for their AM and PM sessions that occurred every Thursday. Now the sessions will be delivered directly to their inbox every Thursday so viewers can watch exclusive content at their convenience, regardless of time zones.
Each session is still focused on a specific industry that KYZEN serves globally, including Electronic Assembly Cleaning, Metal Finishing and sometimes both. These sessions are designed and facilitated by the world’s leading cleaning experts, with access to thousands of cleaning research papers, case studies, and more.
Tech 2 Tech’s new and exciting topics can only be accessed after subscribing to the program with the option to receive content for Electronics industry, Metal Finishing industry, or both. Previous sessions as well as Technical Articles and Q&A sheets will still be available for viewing on the Tech 2 Tech website.
Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?

Nolan Johnson speaks with Ryan Bonner, CEO of DEFCERT, about government regulations for data and cybersecurity. A key component of moving to a digital factory will be to ensure security of the data required to operate a digital factory, and most importantly, customer design data.
