Founded in 2008, KICTeam designs and manufactures custom cleaning solutions for maintaining equipment from todayís leading OEMís. KICTeam is the world leader in the design and manufacturing of cleaning cards, including the patented Waffletechnology products.
KICTeamís mission is to design and manufacture innovative disposables that reduce the maintenance and ownership cost of specialty hardware. We work closely with our partners to educate the market about the benefits of using our disposables.
The concept behind Waffletechnology is very simple: achieve complete access to critical components within the equipment. Because optical lenses are rounded and most sensors are recessed, access cannot be achieved through the use of flat cleaning cards. The solution is very simple: design a card that is not flat.
Waffletechnology cleaning cards incorporate flexible, raised platforms on their top and bottom surfaces. These cleaning platforms are essentially spring-loaded, significantly increasing the pressure applied to the internal components as the card passes through the mechanism. Not only is cleaning pressure increased, but the platforms actually spring up into surface cavities to clean recessed sensors. Additionally, the leading and trailing surfaces of rounded optical lenses are effectively cleaned. Flat cards do not touch recessed sensors and, at best, only come into contact with the convex tip of a rounded optical lens. As the card is accepted into the mechanism and as it is dispensed by the mechanism, it is cleaning all surfaces.
Five primary reasons to consider Waffletechnology as an innovative solutions award:
1. Allows for care and maintenance of machines without dismantling.
2. Concept is simple, yet ingenious.
3. Price/performance and ROI are exceptional.
4. Specifically engineered for individual equipment types and manufacturers.
5. Capitalizes on preventative versus corrective problem resolution.
