The assemblies and components used in the production of semiconductors must be almost entirely free of contamination in the form of films or particles. In other words, all the stages and all the processes must comply with the highest standards of technical cleanliness. A current project demonstrates how this can be achieved.
In the automotive industry, film-type contamination is becoming an increasingly important consideration alongside the particle cleanliness requirements that have been the key factor until now. New manufacturing processes, innovative drive systems and autonomous driving all call for coordinated concepts for parts cleaning.
Enclosed machines are the ideal solution for the ultra-fine cleaning of parts with complex shapes
because all types of liquid chemical cleaning and drying processes can be used. In addition, new
technologies such as cyclic nucleation and hybrid procedures are available.
The current megatrends in the automotive industry, which include Industry 4.0, electric mobility and autonomous driving, will all have a significant impact on parts cleaning. In the past the focus has been on removing particles, but now contamination in the form of films of oil or grease is taking centre stage.
Ultrafine Cleaning procedure | Before sterilisation, the final product must be free of all residue from industrial manufacturing and toxic substances. A new patent-pending cleaning procedure from the seminconductor industry offers more options and could also be fo interest for medical technology.
Asia is a growth market and the demand for high-quality cleaning systems there is constantly increasing. This is why the Surface Alliance invited the Indian machine manufacturer NGCT, which is based in Pune, to become a member of the association of companies in 2010. Since then, production levels have constantly risen and the manufacturing site has been developed further. This article explains the bene ts of producing German products in India and the accompanying requirements.
