Flexible cleanroom for micro-manufacturing
The intra-ocular lens eye implants are produced by MORCHER in an ISO 14644-1 Class 7 environment
With innovation driving the micro-manufacturing sector forward at a high speed, organisations are under pressure to ensure that their production facilities can cope with the fast growth and demand for mass production when a product is successfully launched on the market. Modular cleanroom manufacturer Connect 2 Cleanrooms looks to help companies make smart investments in the clean-air environments of their bespoke cleanrooms through modular constructions.
When German ophthalmic device manufacturer MORCHER required a clean air filtration system for its production area to achieve particle counts according to ISO 14644-1 Class 7, a modular cleanroom from Connect 2 Cleanrooms provided a perfect fit.
MORCHER is a leading international manufacturer of medical products for eye surgery. Specialising in intra-ocular lens eye implants, the company uses the latest micro-manufacturing methods to develop and produce implants for cataract surgery. Connect 2 Cleanrooms creates freestanding cleanroom solutions that use HEPA filtration to produce an exceptionally clean environment.
MORCHER dealt with Connect 2 Cleanrooms’ German head of sales, Stephen Trundle, throughout the project, who enabled a quick turnaround with the cleanroom installation and commissioning requiring just three days.
The cleanroom installed at MORCHER uses HEPA filtration, which is 99.99% efficient at 0.3µm with in-built fan units, to meet particle count and air change requirements of ISO 14644-1 Class 7.
The modular cleanroom’s HEPA filtration delivers its outstanding performance thanks to a combination of low sound, low watts and a low profile. Measuring only 51dBA, the 600mm x 1210mm HEPA filter fan unit (FFU) provides one of the lowest sound levels of any FFU. Running at 220W at 0.45m/s outlet velocity, the unit provides a versatile, compact and quiet solution for modular cleanrooms.
