Dispensing Needle Cleaning

When cleaning dispensing needles, primarily epoxy glue (e.g. SMT adhesives), they must be removed from tools. Only when cleaned regularly, one can guarantee the right amount of dispensed glue.  If the needles are not properly cleaned, remaining SMT adhesives cure over time and make it almost impossible to clean them at a later stage leaving them useless.

Cleaning dispensing needles can be done manually as well as in an automated process, e.g. in an ultrasonic tank.  For this application, ZESTRON offers modern cleaning agents that are formulated on the basis of modified alcohols.  These products feature excellent cleaning power as well as a long bath life if used in an automated system.  These maintenance cleaners are available in aerosol cans and numerous container sizes.

Our engineered cleaning agents as well as the respective cleaning equipment provided by leading international manufacturers can be tested at a ZESTRON Technical Center under production floor conditions.
