Imtec Completes Class 10/1000 Cleanroom Installation
Imtec Acculine recently announced completion of a new clean room to be used in their assembly and test area. The 500 Sq. ft. cleanroom is separated into two sections. One side is class 1000 and will be used for product and component testing. The other side is class 10 and will house a wet station incorporating Imtec process modules as well as a vapor dryer and inspection equipment. To support the new clean room, an entirely new and upgraded DI water system with new high purity plumbing was installed.
The new class 10 area will be used for evaluating new products and applications such as non traditional uses for megasonics. Mark West, Sales Manager of Imtec Acculine, says “We are receiving a lot of inquiries about using megasonics in new applications such as KOH etches, photoresist developer, and cleaning of materials other than silicon. In some cases, there is no way to find out how megasonics will work in these applications without actually running samples and we hope to be able to perform some of these feasibility tests on site in support of our customers.”
Paul Mendes, President, says “Our new clean room shows our commitment to continually meeting the increasing demands of our customers. Testing products in a clean area with high quality DI water shortens the qualification time at the customer’s facility and reduces the risk of contamination. We understand their needs and are willing to make the investments needed to ensure our products perform to the highest level possible.”
