The electronics and data storage industries have seen a dramatic increase in technological advances. Electronics are becoming more complex and everything revolving around storage is moving to the cloud. The problem is that all of these changes cause problems and the durability of the equipment is questioned. Particularly there are problems in cleaning. Since the electronics cannot be cleaned using any liquid solutions, manufacturers have accepted CO2 spray cleaning as a viable alternative. CO2 particles, or snow, are sprayed around the electronics without damaging the components. Especially effective in particle removal down to 0.3 microns.
During manufacturing of electronic circuits, solder flux can build up. If the flux is not removed, it can greatly affect the life and performance of the device. Solder flux removal with our CO2 spray cleaning improves the cleaning process without the need to handle the part.
Motor hub assemblies of Hard Disk Drives must remain very clean and precise. After the laser welding process, sub-micron soot contaminates the assembly. Soot removal using an automated CO2 cleaning solution allows for the components to be cleaned in-tool without damaging the delicate components.
