Our friends at Simco-Ion sent us this brilliant guide to ESD cleanrooms design, principles, and other considerations. Download the PDF you’ll find case studies and technical information about how static charges influence particle retention and impact manufacturing outcomes in controlled environments. Below we’ve highlighted important ideas in relation to medical device cleanrooms and provide additional resources.
Lista’s intense focus on detail has lead to levels of design, aesthetic and manufacturing excellence that are unmatched by any other storage or workspace solution provider. We’ve compiled some of the best-in-the-industry features for electronics manufacturing below:
Are Anti-Static Bags Conductive? What’s the Difference Between Anti-Static and Static Shielding Bags?
Standard plastic bags, commonly made of polyethylene, fail to protect ESD-sensitive devices from the flow of electrically charged objects caused by contact, and electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. ESD is not only a silent killer in high-tech electronics manufacturing and production, but also during hobbyist projects or small-batch electronics repair. Electronic devices, IC components, and other ESD-sensitive devices are not safe from ESD events when stored, handled, or transported outside an ESD safe environment inside an anti-static bag.
Definition of Conductive Flooring ANSI/ESD S20.20 flooring specifications, see here. Moving feet and contact with objects generate triboelectric charges. Static sensitive areas require a grounded
Why Is Static Dissipative PVC a Better Option than Acrylic?
Today, more than ever, meeting the complex challenge of reducing ESD losses requires more than reliance on faith alone. Users require a way to legitimately evaluate and compare competing brands and types of products. They need objective confirmation that their ESD control program provides effective solutions to their unique ESD problems.
