Integrated Process Systems Develops New Hole Cleaning Technology!

Bridging the gap (or clearing the path) between drilling and the electroless process Integrated Process Systems has developed a Horizontal Conveyorized Hole Clean Line that effectively and affordably cleans and wets the tiniest holes.  The newly developed process has four modules and is flexible enough to allow the circuit board manufacturer to use as a final clean.

Module 1 uses a high-pressure blow off with airheads shuttling 110 psi to blow debris from the holes, while it is drying. The system also has a vacuum and filter to collect the debris removing any chance for the debris to re-enter the holes.

Module 2 ultrasonically cleans with 25KHZ and 28KHZ ultrasonic transducers to remove any remaining debris from the holes, and to wet the holes. The ultrasonic is followed by a 1200-psi high-pressure rinse and a final rinse

Module 3 is a dryer that can be turned off so the parts can be loaded wet into the electroless copper line.

Having the hole clean and wet going into the electroless copper line eliminates the need for ultrasonic transducers in the process tanks on the IPS electroless copper line, separating Integrated Process Systems from its competitors.

With this system, your production will be high quality and cost effective, helping your bottom line. Integrated Process Systems Horizontal Conveyorized Hole Clean Line is highly effective as the panels are ultrasonically cleaned individually. The circuit board panels get 100% coverage from the ultrasonic and subsequent process modules.
