Particle-free coating, assembly, cleaning and packaging
Programmes like C.S.I. are very popular with crime fans. They are specifically about securing evidence and ensuring that it does not come into contact with foreign substances.

Forensic evidence does not have to be secured in the Buser Oberflächentechnik AG clean room but the work is just as varied and there is never a lack of new challenges. Come with us and take a glimpse behind the scenes – into the world of a "clean room".

 

Welcome to a glimpse into the "clean room categories"
It is of fundamental importance to apply a high-quality coating to a wide variety of consumer goods, particularly in the fields of medicine, precision engineering and precision mechanics. The reasons for this can be very different in nature. Just as for the gourmet who prepares delicious dishes in the kitchen using pots and pans, the "non-stick effect" often plays a role for technical products as well. This often goes hand in hand with a wish for exceptionally low friction. A general substrate protection or protection against chemicals may also be called for. And then there's the element of water with its special properties. A fascinating and sometimes even physically bizarre element. A unique anomaly causes solid water, i.e. ice, to be lighter at lower density and therefore able to swim. We also have water under control at Buser Oberflächentechnik AG and can provide substrates with hydrophilic or hydrophobic coatings.

 

The clean room team in action for customers
Individual medical or technical components require special material preparation. This is done in the corresponding zones in coordination with the customer and according to strict legal requirements. Extensive cleaning is essential before the coating is applied. However, conventional household "cleaning agents" are not used. Special cleaning essences and the multi-stage ultrasonic system are used to eliminate impurities. The actual coating process then involves providing the technical components with coating systems on an organic or inorganic basis. Consistent clean room conditions are necessary to avoid contamination of components from medical technology, measurement and sensor technology as well as the semiconductor industry. We at Buser Oberflächentechnik AG can offer these conditions and highly demanding services in a production unit created for this purpose, the clean room. Buser Oberflächentechnik AG has created individual quality zones to enable target-oriented and highly efficient work as well as upstream and downstream work. The material preparation, parts cleaning, coating and a so-called highly sensitive core zone are located over an approx. 225 m2 production area. Combined with state-of-the-art equipment and controlled air conditioning, Buser Oberflächentechnik AG achieves clean room class 7 according to ISO 14644.

 

Why clean room work is so important
Irrespective of the technical production areas, the market is constantly placing higher demands on process reliability and component quality. More and more storage capacities in the smallest space, highly sensitive measuring equipment and medical equipment require production that also prevents any form of cross-contamination. This also means that the entire production chain must be subject to continuous quality control and 100% traceable – as at Buser Oberflächentechnik AG. We have set ourselves the task of coating in accordance with sensitive quality standards and legal requirements. We can also carry out assemblies that require an appropriate clean room. The Buser clean room will therefore be accordingly exciting in future even without "Crime Scene Investigation". We do not solve fictitious criminal cases but offer real solutions for coating problems.
