Cleanliness Solutions – Microscopy
The cleanliness of components and parts is at the center of the manufacturing process. Meeting high standards for counting, analyzing, and classifying the often micron-sized contaminant and foreign particles is important for all processes: development, manufacturing, production, and quality control of the final product. International and national directives describe the methods and documentation requirements for determining particle contamination on essential machined parts since these particles directly impact the lifespan of parts and components. Previously, the mass of residue particles was used to characterize the residue. The standards in use today demand more detailed information about the nature of the contamination such as the number of particles, particle size distribution, and particle characteristic.
The OLYMPUS CIX100 Cleanliness Inspection System is designed to meet the cleanliness requirements of modern industry and national and international directives.
