Altus Group has announced a partnership with Kolb Cleaning in the UK and the commencement of a new venture with Reading-based contract manufacturer Active-PCB Solutions.

This collaboration was initiated following discussions at the 2023 Southern Manufacturing and Electronics exhibition, leading to Active-PCB Solutions' investment in a Kolb cleaning system to enhance its PCB cleaning operations.

Active-PCB Solutions, known for its quick-turn solutions and high-complexity assemblies in small to medium batches, sought to augment its PCBA cleaning capabilities. After a comprehensive review, the company chose the Kolb PSE LH7 for its superior cleaning performance and technical capabilities. This selection was influenced by the system's advanced cleaning technology and chemistry, alongside the detailed consultations and robust support from Altus Group.

Joe Booth, CEO of Altus Group, expressed his enthusiasm for Active-PCB Solutions' decision, commending their methodical selection process. He praised Kolb for their in-depth explanations of their systems and the critical aspects of PCBA cleaning, emphasising the value of such information for customers.

Luke Minnis, Manufacturing Product and Process Engineer at Active-PCB, shared his satisfaction with this new alliance and the acquisition of advanced cleaning technology. The collaboration with Altus and Kolb has been positive, and the anticipation for the benefits the new system will bring to their production is high. Confidence in the ongoing support from Altus has been solidified through validation tests and the established relationship.

The Kolb PSE LH7 stands out as an automatic, high-volume cleaning system designed for the advanced cleaning of PCBs, featuring a dual-tank, triple-circuit function with ClosedLoop water recycling for efficient and economical operation. Its capacity for quick cycles and large volumes positions Active PCB to efficiently produce products of exceptional quality.
