CLEAN ROOM – CONVERTING IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT
Looking at the changing market dominated by new technologies and their effective development, we have noticed our customers’ growing demand for modern solutions. The new trends that we can already see in the business and media space, such as the electric drive with an increasingly greater range or autonomous cars, have led to the inevitable development of modern production methods meeting the strict requirements as to product cleanliness.
A clean room is designed to allow control over the amount of particles and microorganisms in the air, as well as parameters such as humidity, temperature, pressure and electrostatics. Clean room production is essential if a product requires a high level of atmospheric purity in each of its areas during the manufacturing process.
The room where we use the clean room technology is 165 m2 of space equipped with the most modern converting machines allowing for cutting of specialist materials and shaping them as the customer requires.
Specialized staff guarantee that all applicable standards of a clean environment have been met and that none of the indicated pollutants can be found on the workpiece.
Our company’s clean room has a separate machine park and a laboratory independent of other production areas.
We are able to constantly monitor the environmental conditions and to test production samples in terms of dimensions
THE SECTORS WE USE THE CLEAN ROOM TECHNOLOGY FOR ARE
YOU CAN BE SURE OF THE CLEAN APPLICATION
In CVGS, the clean room is made of dust-free, easily washable and detergentresistant materials. All devices and tools used in the converting process are subject to certification. Clean room technology protects against contact of particles with materials used during production of a workpiece.
Clean room production must comply with the EN ISO 14644-1:1999 standards defining the airborne particulate cleanliness in clean rooms and zones. Regulation of the Minister of Health of 9 November 2015 on Good Manufacturing Practice.
The strict requirements result from the necessity to meet certain cleanliness parameters by the product. Limiting particles in workpieces used in the electronics industry, cell production or in photovoltaics requires creation of the highest and repeatable quality. This is reflected in the law and ISO standards followed by us with the greatest care.
Classification of air cleanliness in clean rooms is specified by the ISO 14644 standard. It defines classification as the process of specifying or determining the level of air cleanliness in terms of the number of airborne particulates. CVGS’s clean room is of ISO 8 cleanliness class.
Particle counters are adapted to the ISO 8 air cleanliness class. The counters allow us to monitor the amount of particles in the air on an ongoing basis – both those visible to the naked eye (e.g. dust, dirt or sand) and those that are easy to miss or that can only be noticed under a microscope (e.g. metal particles, human epidermis, hair, particles released from materials, clothing and devices). Tests performed in laboratory conditions include:
- control of particles: ≥ 0.5 μm,
- measurements of adhesive materials adhesion,
- measurements of material density and compression,
- ageing tests using a climatic chamber
- (control range with humidity: from 10°C to 95°C; without humidity: from –42°C to 190°C).
