Fully automatic VDA 19 compliant in-line cleanliness testing
Filderstadt, August 2012 - Cleanliness is becoming an increasingly important quality criterion in the automotive industry and other manufacturing sectors. Residual particulate contamination is typically monitored and documented on the basis of VDA 19 cleanliness tests carried out by costly and time-consuming processes in the laboratory. Due to such delay in the quality control loop, there is a risk that already assembled parts may need to be re-cleaned. This risk is minimized by Dürr Ecoclean's new EcoCLab which provides automatic monitoring of production and cleaning processes for particulate cleanliness in accordance with VDA 19. Thanks to its modular design, the compact EcoCLab in-line measuring system can be integrated directly into the cleaning line or may be installed at any other point of the production process.
