Electronic components are involved in nearly half of all emergency assistance calls, often coming from screws, microscopic contamination particles on interconnects regularly cause failures in control units. As a result, components costing only a few cents are responsible for costs amounting to several hundred dollars.
The Cleancon concept developed by Arnold Umformtechnik creates a solution and represents a milestone in avoiding vehicle failures due to electronic components. A combination of the systematic coordination of all parameters affecting the cleanliness of components, cleanliness-oriented production, microcleaning and low-friction coating, and packaging of fastening components under cleanroom conditions allows substantially better cleanliness figures to be achieved.
