Bigger, faster, better - today's fast-moving "way of life" does not stop at cleanliness technology. Demands for maximum cleranliness are increasingly being supplemented by the need for mobility, flexibility and a connection to the digital world. A balancing act that constantly confronts companies with new challenges.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA has been dealing with the facets of cleanliness technology for more than three decades and has also been focusing for years on digitization processes, automation systems and machine learning in a cleanliness-controlled environment.


»CAPE®« - the flexible cleanroom environment

This cleanroom system is mobile, flexible, cost-saving and quickly installed. It is as compact as a tent, but allows an air cleanliness class up to ISO 1.



CAPE® - Highlight of mobile and flexible cleanroom solutions


»Assessment of airborne molecular contaminations«

Smelling minimal outgassing as quickly as possible can enable fast intervention and prevent major damage.


The mobile factory ­ »CassaMobile«

The mobile mini factory in a container provides solutions to problems and opens up new possibilities. Companies can produce flexibly next door to their customers.


»Mobile IPA®.Snow-Clean«

The cleaning method, which is particularly gentle on the environment and material, offers numerous (new) possibilities through efficient, local and dry cleaning.


»Particulate and molecular contamination«

Manufacturing under highest cleanliness conditions is necessary for more and more products.



FlexNote documents all information quickly, transparently and completely in digital form and communicates it simultaneously to all relevant persons.



InsideOut is a combination of real machine data and animated virtual machine models. For this purpose, real-time data is transferred from the PLC to the model and the model is thereby moved.


»Cleanroom Reliability Equipment Monitoring System« (CREMS)

Innovative early warning system for the cleanroom (CREMS): Early detection of wear and contamination using sensors, thus preventing damage.



The tool for high-speed data acquisition of machine data. The focus is on the connection and analysis of existing systems and the testing of new functions for the digital expansion of future systems.
