Powersealer: the ideal solution for packaging in cleanrooms

cleanroom packaging

Introduction

In this article we will discuss the unique properties of the Powersealer and how they come into their own in the packaging of high-tech parts in cleanroom conditions.

Our vision on high-tech

Audion Packaging Machines has been the trusted supplier of packaging solutions to suppliers and leading companies active in precision technology and high-tech markets for many years. The high-tech industry continues to grow unabated. At the same time, we see that the demands placed on components are increasing. Companies and suppliers must continue to innovate and design, produce and assemble at the highest level in order to maintain their competitive edge. Packaging is extremely important, especially for high-quality equipment, machines, machine parts or loose precision components. This is mainly driven by the ever-increasing complexity and vulnerability of these components.

Powersealer in precision technology and cleanroom conditions

Many of the leading companies we supply to have a cleanroom environment. A clean room is a clean working environment that is designed to reduce or eliminate contamination of the product, production process or research taking place in that environment. The atmosphere in a (ISO 5) cleanroom must contain 10,000 times fewer particles larger than 0.5 µm than normal atmosphere. That’s from 35 million parts per cubic metre to about 3,500. Audion Packaging Machines has developed a vacuum sealer specifically designed for use in cleanroom environments. A number of important adjustments have been made for this purpose.  These adjustments were made after intensive cooperation with contamination experts from various companies. This has resulted in a range of sealers and vacuum sealers that fully meet all the requirements of an ISO 5 cleanroom environment.

Calibration and validation in cleanroom environments

Especially in the high-tech and medical world, there is a high demand for process validation. Each package must meet specific requirements. Especially in the medical world it is important to use sealers that can be calibrated, which makes validation of sealing processes possible. Validation of sealing processes ensures that guarantees can be given for the continuous quality of the seal. This concerns parameters such as sealing pressure, sealing time and temperature. The Powersealer can be supplied with a calibration certificate if required.

Innovation

Like many of our customers active in the precision and high-tech industry, we also continue to innovate, in terms of quality, operating comfort and convenience, but also in terms of connectivity and local/remote data analysis.

Audion Packaging Machines

Audion Packaging Machines was founded in 1947 and is a manufacturer of machines for packaging solutions. Our head office is located in the Netherlands and has production locations in the Netherlands and Germany. With a global network, we are represented in more than 65 countries. One of the unique features of Audion Packaging Machines is that, unlike other machine builders, we manage all engineering and production in-house. The advantage of in-house engineering and production is that, in addition to a wide standardised product range, we are also able to develop very customer-specific packaging solutions.
