KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, announced that Tom Forsythe, Executive VP, will present during the Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference. The presentation, “Electrical Twin for Monitoring and Controlling Acceptable Levels of Flux and Other Process Residues,” will take place on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, from 10:30-11 a.m. at the Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam.
Controlling the contamination levels in electronics can significantly enhance humidity robustness. When designing to a No-Clean standard, process flows and landmines must be understood and designed around. Tools that allow the OEM and assembler to test for the cleanliness of materials, components and manufacturing processes are critical for building a finished product that performs and survives in its end-use environment. Once the process has been validated, controlling the process from contamination that arises from the various process steps and handling is critical to product consistency.
Process mining benefits the organization when applied to the assembly operation with defined steps toward controlling flux and other process residues using control technology that produces time-stamped event logs. The process is built on the idea of analyzing Electrical Twin test coupons laid out in the panel of production boards. Those test boards are analyzed, to guide toward standardization, and then improving based on real-time data.
Controlling the process to achieve acceptable levels of flux and process residues is not possible without a holistic understanding of how the whole process is connected. Process mining is purpose-built to handle the inherent complexity and dynamism of the modern assembly processes. It delivers deep visibility and control into the minutiae of individual processes, the relationships between them, and the outcomes they deliver.
