“Ultrasonic Cleaning in the Toolroom is a sound option”
STOP wasting money replacing cutter-blocks before their time by maintaining your tooling with regular ultrasonic cleaning. Don't cause damage by wire brushing, scraping and/or using highly caustic solutions which etch steel and cause carbon embrittlement.
STOP losing money on back-up tooling by speeding up the cleaning procedure and reducing the need to carry additional tooling on stand-by. Approximately four-six minutes in an ultrasonic tank against hours out of production while soaking and then wire brushing or scraping.
STOP wasting valuable man-hours undertaking unnecessary tasks such as removing and re-insert cutters and/or wedges before and after cleaning.
STOP losing money machining or replacing cutters that required extra grinding to reinstate cutting edges dulled or chipped by physical wire brushing and scraping.
STOP losing money prematurely replacing contaminated grinding coolants that are saturated with resin, ‘gunk', or solvents, kerosene, diesel etc., Tooling inadequately cleaned, reduces the effectiveness and life of expensive grinding fluids.
STOP losing money replacing cutter-head bolts/screws with thread damage resulting from compacted sawdust and small chips lodged in and around bolt holes or accumulated in key slots.
STOP losing money expecting skilled staff to carry out time consuming, manual tasks, such as the soaking and scraping of cutter blocks. While your ‘electronic scrubbing brush' is efficiently and effectively working away by itself, your tool-room staff can get on with things more
cost- productive. You will be surprised at the increase in morale.
STOP losing money from machine wear caused by running unbalanced tooling. Hidden built-ups of matter/resin on cutter blocks can result in ‘out of balance' running reducing the life of spindle bearings and compromising your product finish.
STOP losing money storing and disposing of hazardous material. Solutions used in ultrasonic tanks can be safe, environment friendly, and biodegradable thus eliminating the costs and safety issues associated with the storage and disposal of dangerous chemicals.
STOP putting your staff at risk from infection by reducing the likelihood of cuts or skin punctures, which can result in lost time, disruption of production schedules, or even a visit from OSH.
