New cleaning system maintains contact cleaning rollers better than IPA

July 30, 2012 — Teknek debuted an elastomer roller care system for all contact cleaning rollers, used during the manufacture of semiconductors, displays, solar cells, and other products. Unlike isopropyl alcohol (IPA) cleaning, the elastomer Roller Doctor rejuvenation pad exfoliates the roller surface with a precise quantity of proprietary cleaning solution.

The cleaning pads are impregnated with the solution, controlling cleaning liquid quantity.

Teknek recommends that this cleaning procedure is carried out every quarter to ensure the roller is delivering the highest possible performance and removes concerns about any debris on the roller entering and potentially damaging the cleaner.

Teknek provides contact cleaning equipment for a number of sectors including semiconductors, converting, printing, medical and solar cells. Teknek is a wholly owned subsidiary of Illinois Tool Works Inc., which operates businesses in welding, automotive OEM, industrial packaging, food equipment, construction, polymers and fluids, test and measurement, electronics, decorative surfaces and automotive aftermarket, and more.
