The flexible printed circuit board was abour 6" x 8" x 1/8" Each board contained hundreds of holes. The first boards we cleaned were about 50% full of debris we believed was caused by the particles generated by laser cutting. They required counting of the debris left. Normally it took 5-6 runs to get 100% cleaned.
