Cleanrooms play an essential role in contamination-sensitive applications such as semiconductor fabrication, pharmaceuticals, optics, medical devices/life sciences, and many more. Cleanrooms are designed to control the number of particulates in the air, such as dust, microbes, aerosols, etc. to avoid compromising the processes and products manufactured within. The standards for these enclosures are extremely tight, especially when motion systems are involved, but by following a few basic techniques, it’s possible to conduct operations while maintaining an appropriate environment. . .
