Cleanzone 2017: A look into the future of cleanroom production


How will cleanroom production change over the next few years, and what role will be played by digitisation and the increasingly strict requirements resulting from systems growing ever more complex, compact and smaller? Participants will be able to get answers to these questions at the Cleanzone congress and trade fair on 17 and 18 October 2017 in Frankfurt am Main.

How the cleanroom production will change over the next few years will be discussed at Cleanzone 2017.

Representatives from science, industry and associations will be on hand to present the latest technologies, processes and research findings especially for users and experts. This year marks the first time that the Cleanzone Congress will feature two keynote speakers: on 17 October, Dr. Marc Thom will take a look at our digital future, while on 18 October Dr. Axel Müller will review the importance of cleanroom technology for the high-tech systems that are expected to provide ever better data for space exploration. Both keynote speeches tackle the top themes for Cleanzone 2017: digitisation and space exploration.

As in years past, the Cleanzone Congress is divided into four modules that can be booked separately. The programme kicks off on 17 October with the module: “Cleanrooms: People + Technology”. Here, participants will find out more about how to improve personnel conduct, clothing, logistics and cleanroom cleaning. Process optimisation is the subject of the second module on Tuesday: “Processes: Project Management + Automation”. In this module, topics include value-stream-oriented process management, facility management systems and monitoring operational quality. On Wednesday morning, the congress addresses “Construction: Components + Systems”. Experts will be illuminating the topics of airlocks and transport systems, modular and flexible building systems, and the requirements for new cleanroom construction using microbiological quality control as an example. Modern measurement equipment, the identification of contamination and subsequent testing will be the focus for participants in the “Measurement Technology: Equipment + Project Validation/Qualification” module on Wednesday afternoon.
