The 2,000 square meter temperature and humidity controlled, high bay ASML storage and handling area comprises an 80 square meter clean room, divided into an ISO Class 7 clean room, a buffer room and a gowning room, both ISO Class 8. Core activities in the clean room involve cleaning, repacking and kitting of parts, including ESD sensitive items.
