Cleanroom for laser plastic welding

LaserMicronics expands production spectrum

The demand for high quality manufacturing services with the laser is constantly growing. LaserMicronics as a specialist for laser micromachining uses the good market climate to place additional production offers. In June, the laser plastic welding branch in Fuerth had already moved into new, modern administration and production facilities. Now a clean room went into operation to add more sophisticated plastic products.
Cleanroom for laser plastic welding
The LaserMicronics cleanroom has two cells and meets the requirements of ISO Class. 5
Here LaserMicronics offers conventional welds with high hygiene requirements, but also relies on innovative technologies. A special feature is the clear-clear welding process. The ClearJoining technology combines similar transparent joining partners without additives. For this, a special laser welding system with a new clamping technology and a laser with a specific wavelength is used.

Roland Lindenberger, head of the branch in Fuerth confirmed the great interest: Just a few days after installation of the laser systems the production of batch components started.

Cleanroom ISO Class 5

The LaserMicronics clean room meets the requirements of ISO class 5 according to cGMP standards. This ISO class allows max. 100 particles of max. 0.5 microns diameter per cubic foot to be included in the air (3.5 particles per liter). The two production cells are equipped with separate goods receipt / exit gates.

In cleanroom a slight overpressure continuously prevails. The entire exhaust air from the installed laser systems is filtered and blown outside the clean area. A lock with protective clothing ensures that no contamination happens from outside. In addition, the workplaces are equipped with laminar flow units, to further reduce the number of airborne particles in the environment of sensitive microfluidics.

Depending on cycle time and size, 2 - 4 million parts per year can be manufactured in the new clean room.
