New ISO Class 7 cleanroom allows the engineering company to offer assembly of precision machine parts and bearings with improved quality and cleanliness
MacTaggart Scott, the naval engineering company based in Scotland, has chosen Connect 2 Cleanrooms to deliver an integrated solution following a new contract for a product with cleanroom requirements.
Connect 2 Cleanrooms was appointed because of its capability to provide a bespoke solution and integrated cleanroom lifecycle support.
The cleanroom expert helped MacTaggart Scott to understand the requirements of the ISO Cleanroom Standard and to build an appropriate user requirement specification (URS).
For the assembly of precision machine parts and bearings, clients expect cleanroom production and the new ISO Class 7 facility at MacTaggart Scott opens up more opportunities through improved quality and cleanliness.
The review of the process has also generated additional efficiencies. MacTaggart Scott is now benefitting from reduced overall costs and increased process confidence.
“The organisation of the project was really impressive. Timelines were stuck to and the whole thing went very smoothly," commented the Production Assembly Manager at MacTaggart Scott commented on the process.
The cleanroom training that Connect 2 Cleanrooms delivered has increased awareness of how usage can affect contamination and has prompted the introduction of new kitting boxes for the cleanroom and workshops to reduce cross contamination.
MacTaggart Scott also now benefit from an effective cleanroom change area layout, purchasing a variety of items from Cleanroomshop; from a step over bench to cleanroom clothing.
The step over bench works as a physical barrier, as well as providing storage and helping operators to apply overshoes safely. Coat hooks allow the efficient and accessible storage of Tyvek gowns in the change area.
MacTaggart Scott invested in a particle counter, to meet its customer requirement of conducting weekly particle counts.
Connect 2 Cleanrooms will continue to support MacTaggart Scott’s compliance to ISO standards with a five-year service contract, including annual validation visits and emergency call out cover for peace of mind.
“The full lifecycle that Connect 2 Cleanrooms provides makes it really easy to navigate around all of the different services that we need to use. They are really price competitive, have a great product range and it is easy to navigate around www.cleanroomshop.com.
“This support was the biggest reason for purchasing from Connect 2 Cleanrooms; the guidance with the room, service contract and the consumables has saved us a lot of hassle. This has been a massive project and the extra support and reassurance has been really special.” Production Assembly Manager, MacTaggart Scott.
