Cleanzone has the power to initiate and promote new technologies

Sep 18 2019 Read 281 Times

On 19-20th November, Cleanzone will be bringing manufacturers and users together in Frankfurt-am-Main. As the event draws closer, Josef Ortner from Ortner Reinraumtechnik, and a member of the Cleanzone strategy commission, explains the trade fair’s importance and offers insight into the biggest challenges facing the industry.

1. Ortner Reinraumtechnik has booked a much larger stand for Cleanzone 2019. What led you to do this?

“Our company participates in numerous international cleanroom trade fairs and conventions, and it goes without saying that these events differ from one another. Cleanzone offers us a platform for vivid and varied presentations of our cleanroom systems, especially our newest developments, for a professional audience.”

2. What is the importance of Cleanzone for the cleanroom community?

“The cleanroom industry is extremely diverse, and it is difficult to cover the full spectrum in a single trade fair. This is further exacerbated by internationalisation and the differences in standards and conditions found in individual countries and regions. As a trade fair in the truest sense, Cleanzone has the power and potential to develop into a major international marketplace for cleanroom technology, and in particular to initiate and promote new technologies. Users and providers alike are in need of fresh inspiration and new approaches. Considering the development and expertise of engineering firms and planners, trade fairs like Cleanzone can deliver real added value.”

3. In what areas do you expect the industry to be presenting innovations at Cleanzone?

“I believe that there will be a focus on products, systems and processes dealing with microbiological cleanliness; in other words, decontamination technologies. It would be both fascinating and welcome if there are numerous foreign exhibitors at the trade fair to present their products and services. International comparisons make it clear that simple, cost-effective solutions are also available. Besides, there are also excellent products and solutions in use in other economic regions, and we would do well to take note of these. Competition creates pressure, and pressure supplies the energy for change – in every direction.”

4. What are some of the biggest challenges facing cleanroom technology over the next few years?

“In future, all the industries in which cleanliness and cleanroom technology are important will feel a major impact from four interrelated elements:

  • Security: It will be necessary to develop or combine systems, processes, facilities and technologies that increase security in every sense of the world, be it in manufacturing, automation, digitalisation or the quality of products and work.
  • Energy: We will have to undertake every conceivable measure that helps save energy and protect the environment. This could well result in major change processes and may even impact the designs of buildings and production facilities.
  • Information: Huge advances in measurement technology will be necessary, and modern digitalisation systems will have to be introduced and integrated into every aspect of cleanroom technology.
  • Flexibility: In every area and field pertaining to cleanrooms it will be necessary to achieve the greatest possible flexibility. This applies to infrastructure installations, equipment installations, processing facilities and fabs.
