Cleanroom on demand
The smallest degree of contamination can lead to major quality issues across many industries. Should, for example, any impurities occur on microchips, space probes and lenses, this can lead to defects or faulty end devices. To avoid damage, companies tend to outsource the relevant manufacturing and assembly steps for high-quality products to cleanrooms. However, these are expensive, limited in their availability and fail to offer protection against contamination as a result of transportation. Fraunhofer IPA has now developed the world’s first mobile cleanroom system in the form of its “Clean Multipurpose Cover”. It can be set up flexibly and ensures the sterility of products during transportation.
