KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, will exhibit at RAPID + TCT 2022, scheduled to take place May 17-19, 2022, in Detroit, Michigan. The KYZEN clean team will discuss the KYZEN 3D5701 and KYZEN 3D5420 3D Printing Process TPM Resin Cleaners at Booth #1348.
KYZEN 3D5701 and 3D5420 are cost-effective cleaning chemistries designed for cleaning resin residues remaining from the Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing process. Both chemistries have proven effective with many standard UV cured resins used in the 3D printing processes.
Environmentally safe, KYZEN 3D5701 and 3D5420 are free rinsing, low odor, and effective at ambient temperature. The resin cleaners are designed for use in spray-in-air and ultrasonic cleaning systems.

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.
