Jigar Patel, ZESTRON, to Present at the 2015 Medical Symposium

Manassas, VA – September 14, 2015 ZESTRON, the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that Jigar Patel, M.S.Ch.E., Senior Process Engineer, ZESTRON Americas, will present “Electronic Assemblies & Devices for the Medical Industry: Cleaning & Material Compatibility Challenges” at the 2015 Medical Electronics Symposium.

Within the medical industry, electronic parts and medical devices must meet the highest quality standards as failure is not an option. Whether manufacturing electronic assemblies or devices, precision cleaning of flux and/or metal processing residues is of utmost importance, without adversely affecting material compatibility.

For electronic assemblies, partially removed or untouched residues can lead to component and product failure resulting from electrochemical migration, dendritic growth and electrical leakage currents. Regarding medical devices, contamination from the manufacturing processes such as electro-polish solution, coolants, paraffin lubricants, and soda blast residues must be completely removed in order to meet the required cleanliness standards.  Within this presentation, two case studies are presented detailing the challenges presented and solutions offered to two manufacturers, one producing Class 3 electronic assemblies and another medical devices.

The 2015 Medical Electronics Symposium will be held at Marylhurst University in Portland, OR. Mr. Patel will present during the “Components and Designs for High-Density Medical Electronics” session of the symposium on September 16th, at 9:45 AM.
