Parts Cleaning

Vacuum Cleaning System (Patent Number on File)


The Vacuum  Cleaning System is a new means of efficiently cleaning your parts. It consists of two opposing plastic mold halves that close around the part, and a high-powered vacuum that sucks chips and coolant off the part, leaving it clean and dry. Coolant and chips can then be recovered and dispensed into their proper handling systems, allowing the coolant to be recycled.

Due to the unit’s compact design, it can be easily adapted to existing or new manufacturing systems. When you compare the Vacuum Cleaning System with more traditional cleaning systems, it is easy to see the new system’s potential.
