We currently use under-stencil wipe for in-process stencil cleaning. Our product goes in sensitive optical equip. Our customer is finding microscopic fibers we believe are coming from stencil wiping paper. Can anyone recommend a different process or device that can be used in-process? We also use UT water cleaning but need something that can be used in-process.

You don't say what type of / source of cleaning paper... there are many and some are certainly more prone to leave fibers behind.

We have used different suppliers including direct from MpM and from a couple other sources who sell comsumables. Do you have a recommendation?

I have always had success using the Dupont sontara material... many suppliers offer. Recently have two customers of mine who swear by the results using the Aquavator for lint free and cleaning result without solvents.
