For large production throughputs and minimal component diversity, in-line cleaning machines are a time-efficient and cost-effective solution when cleaning electronic assemblies. The printed circuit boards run automatically on the conveyor belt through the individual process steps, where cleaning, rinsing and drying are performed in separate chambers.
Before deciding on an inline process, its necessary to consider the footprint. Inline machines require larger floor space in comparison to batch cleaning machines. An inline system can only be integrated into the production line when the entry and exit of the assemblies as well as the cleaning itself are fully automated.
