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.
In this cleanroom highlight, the smart ultrasonic sensor technology is used to continuously monitor the current sag of the e-skin® flat with support chain. The e-skin® flat with support chain SKF.S is equipped with a defined bend radius and therefore enables unsupported lengths in cleanrooms. As soon as a critical condition of the energy supply system can be detected, predictive maintenance recommendations are issued.

In order to be able to develop new motion plastics that are suitable for use in cleanrooms, the 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.
In the new laboratory, we can carry out customer tests and new developments in advance under real conditions within a very short time.

The data for GMP and FED STD 209E only serve as a rough comparison and do not take other factors such as bacterial contamination into account. Please contact us to find the right configuration for your project.
Do the cleanroom products meet the increasing demands?
Since the quality requirements for cleanroom technology applications as well as those on the part of the customers and test standards are constantly growing, igus® is continuously working on improving its products. For this purpose, igus has been carrying out tests for cleanroom suitability in its own test laboratory since 1997. In addition, appropriate products are tested externally by the Fraunhofer Institute.
Are igus bearings suitable for cleanrooms?
The cleanroom suitability of our iglidur plain bearings is determined on the basis of the wear particles released in the application. The size and quantity of the released wear particles depend on:
