Cleanroom Approved Plastic Components from igus®

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.

Benefits:

  • Easy assembly and fast delivery
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Low noise & vibration
  • Easy-to-open e-chains for quick cable replacement
  • Tested and proven long service life with guarantee: 50 million double strokes
  • Chains, cables & connectors from batch size 1
  • Also as a complete system from a single source
Applications:
  • Linear system with air bearings for highly precise adjustments
  • Energy supply systems in semiconductor manufacturing
  • Wafer handling
  • drylin® TR high helix thread nuts for laboratory equipment
