There are many companies which offer die cutting services and some of these also offer clean room die cutting. This service is specialized and involves the use of a specially designed die. Particular attention has to be made to the die board which must be made from a synthetic material which is guaranteed not to contaminate the product being manufactured. The cutter also needs to be made from stainless steel to prevent rust related issues.
A clean room must have a controlled air supply which prevents particles from entering the room and damaging the products being manufactured. It is also essential to control temperature and humidity as both of these can be detrimental to many sensitive products; such as computer chips.
Any company which offers clean room services should have well trained staff who understand the principles and procedures which are essential to correctly manufacturing the components required. An equal level of attention needs to be paid to the stocking and cleaning of the clean room. A company which understands these principles and adheres to them will have qualified for the ISO 14644 Class 7. They may also have ISO 14698. If you are engaged in talks with a company that does not comply with these standards you should consider taking your business elsewhere.
