Abstract

An apparatus which controls contamination due to handling is is disclosed. A part to be transferred from station to station within a processing line is placed in a device which generates a continuous curtain of anti-static, purified air. Particulates from the operator looking down over the part or talking over the part are thus blown away. The part is cleaned as it is brought up through the curtain of air. Optionally, the contamination control device is large enough to hold a fixture containing several parts.
