It’s crucial for moving components in cleanrooms to be highly abrasion resistant, as any contaminant can damage products or impair processes. igus® develops and rigorously tests its high-performance polymer parts for abrasion resistance inside its 41,000ft2 lab and works with the Fraunhofer Institute to subject them to further testing. This enables a broad product portfolio with the best possible cleanroom classification (ISO Class 1).
Our cleanroom tests are in accordance with ISO 14644-14 for the rapid development of products. Fraunhofer IPA, working as a development and certification partner on behalf of igus®, has designed and built a tailor-made cleanroom laboratory with an ISO Class 1 cleanroom system in Cologne, Germany. In the new lab, we can quickly carry out customer tests under real-world conditions and develop new abrasion-resistant plastic components that are suitable for use in cleanrooms.
Cable carriers in cleanroom environments must be highly abrasion resistant to prevent particles from being released into the air, which can contaminate the cleanroom.
Pneumatic hoses and various cables with IPA ISO class 1 and 2 - also available pre-assembled ready for connection, suitable for Bosch Rexroth, Festo, Parker, Siemens and many other manufacturers.
In our product range of dry-operating linear guide systems, we offer four models that are certified for use in ISO class 6 to 3 cleanrooms.
The sliding elements of PRT-04 made of iglide® J minimize particle emissions, so they can be used in cleanroom applications.
