The quality characteristic „technical cleanliness“ has become an important performance requirement due to the development of ever smaller and more efficient components and systems. If you too are responsible for manufacturing, assembling and the distribution of components and systems under the requirements of technical cleanliness, the IPS Engineers will be delighted to assist you. With our help, you build control loops that allow you to take targeted action and check and focus on the essentials. Always true to the motto: „What we have to do, not what is anything we can do“
The IPS Engineers carry out standard cleanliness analyzes in accordance with the specifications of VDA 19.1. With our expertise and our associated laboratory, we are able to measure the environmental cleanliness according to VDA 19.2. In addition to the analysis capabilities, we also have broad experience in defining technically feasible cleanliness thresholds to interpret the existing process sequences with appropriate expectations in the direction of technical cleanliness and conceptual Show weaknesses.
For the second level of cleanliness analyzes, our expertise lies in the targeted assignment of contaminants to the relevant particle sources. Building on the cause-and-effect analysis, performing Clean-Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a commonly used method to further develop the analysis towards appropriate avoidance strategies. For this, we rely on a solid fund of expertise, for example for the construction of particle catalogs and the associated data analysis, which are suitably adapted and used in the application. The derivation of targeted avoidance strategies, selection, and integration of cleaning technology or the creation of cleaning plans are just a few of the improvement measures that have been developed.
In addition to the process-based preparation of test plans and a process-related reporting of relevant cleanliness KPIs, it is important to develop and establish suitable escalation strategies and to establish it in the consideration of technical cleanliness in more detail in cleanliness/process audits. In addition to these methodological and organizational measures, the training of employees at all levels, the clean design of equipment and processes, and last but not least, the more and more relevant clean construction are the subject of our approach to the development of sustainable structures in the field of technical cleanliness.
