Austin American Technology marks 35 years as an industry leader in cleaning

Jan 04, 2021

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased toannounce the company’s 35th anniversary. The company first began as a provider of SMT rework systems and process engineering testing services. In 1988, AAT’s focus shifted toward the high-end electronics cleaning segment with the introduction of the world’s first automated stencil cleaner. In 2000, AAT became a market leader in inline cleaning systems with the introduction of the award-winning HydroJet® series. 

AAT was founded by Steve Stach in 1986. Stach is the founder, CTO, and Chairman of the Board, and holds seven patents in cleaning and soldering with others pending. Mr. Stachstated: “I am truly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with so many leaders in such a vibrant industry for over 35 years, and although it has been a wild ride, I would gladly do it all over again.”

With the HydroJet series, AAT incorporated patented cleaning and drying technologies into an energy and space-efficient format to set new standards for performance and low cost of ownership. Building on this success, AAT introduced the MicroJet® inline flip chip cleaner to provide high volume cleaning capability in a small footprint.  In 2013 AAT introduced the world’s smallest most efficient inline cleaner, the NanoJet®. The ExtremeJet® is the newest addition to the inline cleaning family, using the same industry leading technology in cleaning and drying, with new features in efficiency.

Today, AAT offers a myriad of batch, jet, solvent and stencil cleaning systems, including the multi-award-winning Mega ION® automated batch cleaning system. The Mega ION is designed for solvent based, high reliability applications requiring product cleanliness verification (IPC ROSE Testing).
