Technical Cleanliness

Demands for quality control of components and cleanliness testing have risen steadily in recent years—so much so that clean manufacturing is now one of the main issues in the automotive industry. Both functionality and the lifetime of products are linked directly to the extent of particulate contamination. Thus quantitative and qualitative detection of particulate contamination helps you improve the manufacturing process and ultimately saves you money. ZEISS systems for cleanliness testing let you measure the relevant particulate contamination originating from the manufacturing process and production environment.
 
Use ZEISS systems to quantify particulate contamination. SteREO Discovery.V8 measures particles down to 20 µm. Axio Zoom.V16, our fully automated microscope, is ideal for analyzing particles down to 5 µm.
 
Enhance the quality of your automotive manufacturing processes with ZEISS systems for quality control. Our particle analyzer system for cleanliness testing supports ISO 16232 and VDA 19.1 as well as individual company standards.

Particles ≥ 20 µm

SteREO Discovery.V8: Measure particles down to 20 µm

  • Choose a cost effective ZEISS bundle for cleanliness testing.
  • Boost your lab performance with shorter analysis times:
    only 5 minutes for 2 scans, POL and BF, from analysis start to result (scanned area: 1500 mm2).
  • Just three steps from start of analysis to result.
  • Count and classify your particles in length, width and further size parameters and identify fibers. Differentiate between metallic and non-metallic particles.
  • Carry out cleanliness testing to support national and international automotive standards such as ISO 16232, VDA 19.1 and your own company’s internal standards.
  • Perform your ‘Standard Analyses’ with Stereo Discovery.V8, our best suited system solution, to support VDA 19.1, 2nd revision edition, March 2015.

Your SteREO Disvovery.V8 for particle measurement includes:

  • A microscope with a digital color camera and image analysis software tailored to the demands of cleanliness testing.
  • Supreme ease of operation with ergonomic viewing posture.
  • Fully motorized polarization equipment.
  • AxioVision Particle Analyzer Projects software to measure particle sizes accurate and repeatable.

Particles ≥ 5 µm

Axio Zoom.V16: Measure particles down to 5 µm

  • Choose a fully automated ZEISS bundle for cleanliness testing.
  • Speed up analysis times for particle measurement.
    Time to result per filter sample about 9 minutes for 2 Scans , POL and BF
    (pixel resolution: 1 µm/pixel, scanned area 1500 mm2).
  • Just three steps from start of analysis to result.
  • Count and classify your particles in length, width, further size parameters and identify fibers. Differentiate between metallic and non-metallic particles.
  • Carry out cleanliness testing to support national and international automotive standards such as ISO 16232, VDA 19.1 and your own company’s internal standards.
  • Perform your ‘Extended Analyses’ with ZEISS AxioZoom.V16, our custom tailored system, to support VDA 19.1, 2nd revised edition, March 2015.

Your Axio Zoom.V16 for particle measurement includes:
