As a Business Unit Manager or part of a Business Unit Team you will know that the cost and risk to your business of an unreliable product are inestimable and that the precise and consistent removal of electronic manufacturing residues and particulates prior to conformal coating, assembly or packaging is directly proportional to product reliability.

This rapidly developing sector creates ever increasing demands on your ability to keep pace with production techniques. To continue to produce a reliable product will rely very heavily on a final cleaning process which does not need to change when your production techniques or products do.

To formalise and future proof your cleaning process will require a knowledge and full understanding of the many and varied techniques involved and the wrong choice can have potentially disastrous consequences on future reliability.

Your Challenge

To improve and maintain your product reliability through clear and concise processes which are environmentally compliant, cost effective, repeatable, reliable and future proof.

Your Solution

Through partnership and in-depth consultation with you, including planning, testing and review, the team from Layton will provide our in depth knowledge of cleaning processes in your market sector to develop a tailored system to meet any changes in your production needs and exceed your expectations – no matter how big or how small..

At Layton, we don’t sell machines we remove risks.

Case Study

Layton Technologies, the specialist component cleaning equipment manufacturer, has developed a precision cleaning and drying process for the effective removal of flux and associated contamination from printed circuit boards.

Based on the application of the latest high solvency cleaning chemistries for removing residues from PCBs produced using “No-clean” and “No-lead fluxes”, Layton have worked closely with Dupont and their new generation of highly effective defluxing solvents – Vertrel SFR to provide a complete board cleaning process.

Layton developed the latest PCB cleaning systems to provide a more effective solution to manufacturers of high value electronics components destined for critical applications where cleanliness standards and validation are paramount.

The Layton Bluestone FRS system is a fully automated and enclosed system which offers the highest level of solvent containment is efficient, fast and gives controlled cleaning and drying with high standards of operator safety and environmental acceptance.

Overall the Bluestone package provides a much faster process than many conventional cleaning methods, with significant cost savings on solvent use and superior ionic cleanliness results.

Layton have a full demonstration and testing facility at their North Staffordshire manufacturing base and offer a complete cleaning trails and evaluation service for companies who wish to test the new cleaning process on their products and to view the equipment to establish its advantages and suitability.

Layton provides a range of cleaning technologies for the electronics, semi-conductor and precision components industries.  These technologies include PCB cleaners using a range of solvents, flammable solvent cleaners, wet-benches, vapour driers and aqueous ultrasonic cleaning systems.
