Cleanroom products up to ISO Class 1

Whether in a display robot or in pick-and-place applications in semiconductor manufacturing and microelectronics:
igus offers components for every cleanroom that bring Tech up and Cost down

In the case of cleanrooms, the requirements regarding the abrasion-resistance of moving components are especially high, as every contamination impairs products and processes. This costs money. We develop and test our high-performance polymer products in our in-house cleanroom laboratory with utmost care. Moreover, in order to provide solid attestation that our products are ideal for use in cleanrooms, the Fraunhofer Institute subjects them to further tests. This enables a broad product portfolio with the best possible cleanroom classification (ISO Class 1).
Advantages of our cleanroom products:
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Low noise and low vibration
  • Fast delivery and easy assembly
  • Easily openable e-chains for quick cable replacement
  • Tested and proven long service life with guarantee: 50 million double strokes
  • Chains, cables and connectors available individually from batch size 1 - or as a complete system from a single source

The huge motion plastics sample box

Making trying things out easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics at hand that are suited for your individual industry sector. 
We will bring the display to you, set it up upon request and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.

Cleanroom compatible products

Energy chains

Energy chains in a cleanroom environment have to be especially abrasion-resistant as airborne particles above the strict limits specified in standards are released and can contaminate the cleanroom.
e-chains for cleanroom applications

Cables and hoses

Pneumatic hoses and various cables with IPA ISO class 1 and 2 - also available ready for connection, suitable for Bosch Rexroth, Festo, Parker, Siemens and many other manufacturers.
Flexible cables for cleanrooms

Linear guides

In our product range of dry-operating linear guide systems, we offer four models that are certified for use in ISO class 6 to 3 cleanrooms.

    ... predictive maintenance in cleanroom with i.Cee EC.S

    In this cleanroom highlight, the smart ultrasonic sensor technology is used to continuously monitor the current sag of the e-skin® flat with support chain. The e-skin® flat with support chain SKF.S is equipped with a defined bend radius and therefore enables unsupported lengths in cleanrooms. As soon as a critical condition of the energy supply system can be detected, predictive maintenance recommendations are issued.

    Cleanroom tests in accordance with ISO 14644-14 for the rapid development of products for customers

    In order to be able to develop new motion plastics that are suitable for use in cleanrooms, the Fraunhofer IPA, working as a development and certification partner on behalf of igus, has designed and built a tailor-made cleanroom laboratory with an ISO Class 1 cleanroom system in Cologne.
    In the new laboratory, we can carry out customer tests and new developments in advance under real conditions within a very short time.

    Questions & answers regarding cleanroom technology products

    Do the cleanroom products meet the increasing demands?
    Since the quality requirements for cleanroom technology applications as well as those on the part of the customers and test standards are constantly growing, igus® is continuously working on improving its products. For this purpose, igus has been carrying out tests for cleanroom suitability in its own test laboratory since 1997.  In addition, appropriate products are tested externally by the Fraunhofer Institute.

    Are igus bearings suitable for cleanrooms?
    The cleanroom suitability of our iglidur plain bearings is determined on the basis of the wear particles released in the application. The size and quantity of the released wear particles  depend on:
    • the respective pairing of shaft and bearing material
    • further parameters such as load, speed etc.
    Therefore, there are no clearly defined cleanroom materials for our plain bearings, but instead they depend on their use. Our experts will be happy to help you choose the right material (contact form).
