Cleanroom products up to ISO Class 1

In the case of cleanrooms, the requirements regarding the abrasion-resistance of moving components are especially high, as every contamination impairs products and processes. This costs money. At igus®, we develop and test our high-performance polymer products in our in-house cleanroom laboratory. In addition, in order to provide solid data that our products are suitable for use in cleanrooms, the Fraunhofer Institute subjects them to further tests. This enables a broad product portfolio with the best possible cleanroom classification (ISO Class 1).

    World premiere ...

    ... predictive maintenance in cleanroom with i.Cee EC.S

    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.

    Frequently asked questions about cleanroom technology products

    Do the igus® cleanroom products meet the increasing demands?

    As the quality requirements for cleanroom technology applications 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: • the respective pairing of shaft and bearing material • further parameters such as load, speed etc. Therefore, there are no clearly defined cleanroom materials for our plain bearings, but instead they depend on their use.
