Technical Cleanliness – Everything from a single supplier

High power densities, narrow tolerances, the use of sensitive materials and high production speeds are constantly increasing the requirements placed on the manufacturing industry. There is an increasing focus on technical cleanliness in topics relating to our present and future such as e-mobility, battery / hybrid systems and hydrogen. With the best possible cleanliness management, you can optimise your process results and the availability of your machines and fluid power systems. This allows you to reduce your costs in the long term.

We're a partner for highly automated production techniques and contributor to VDA Volume 19 / ISO 16232. From filtration and quality assurance in cleanliness labs to targeted process analysis. We support you with your cleanliness management across your entire process chain.

Component Cleanliness

Malfunctions, complaints or complete system shutdowns – contaminated components can make your costs skyrocket. As quality standards become stricter and stricter, expectations for the cleanliness and quality of your components are rising rapidly. To ensure that your processes always remain reliable, we're on hand to help with our range of products and services.

Component Cleanliness for your Technical Cleanliness

Residual contamination analysis

We determine the cleanliness of your components in our cleanliness laboratories or with our mobile lab on-site: experienced and trained laboratory staff enable component cleanliness tests to be performed professionally and in accordance with existing standards (ISO 16232, VDA 19.1, customer specifications). On request, we are also able to provide SEM/EDX analysis.

Cleanliness specifications

A written cleanliness specification for components or assemblies aids the dialogue with the supplier. With our experience and successful projects, you can count on our expertise. As a partner, we're happy to help you develop your own cleanliness specifications and/or support you in discussions with your suppliers.

Training in accordance with applicable standards

Challenging and sensitive technology requires properly trained staff! In our modular training sessions, we work on the most important cornerstones of technical cleanliness according to VDA 19.1. Whether it's an in-house training session at your premises, at HYDAC or in an online seminar, we adapt our training to your individual needs.

Process chain analysis

From incoming goods and delivery to your suppliers - we help you to reliably comply with specified cleanliness values. We perform our process chain analysis according to VDA 19.2 on all kinds of production lines.
