Most of the parts precision stampers manufacture are individual components that are part of an assembly. In order for the final assembly to look and function correctly, each part must be made to spec. It’s easy to imagine how the wrong bend angle or a notch in the wrong place impacts a final product, but what about how clean those individual components are?

Industries from automotive and aerospace to medical devices and electronics, use precision-stamped components in their products and depend on their cleanliness for the final product to work.

This document focuses on technical cleanliness concepts and procedures in single component precision stamping. Whether you’re familiar with specifying cleanliness and particle sizes and counts for your vendors or you need an introduction to get up to speed, you’ll gain a clear understanding of how cleanliness is defined and how it’s achieved and maintained.
