WASHING AND CLEANING AT THE PARTICLE LEVEL
To ensure a component’s exactness, it is not always enough to have extremely accurate measurements. Unwanted particles can escape measurement checks. The components must then be washed. In the majority of Swedish industries, this type of washing and control is outsourced. However, we see great benefits in doing it ourselves. In this way we can optimise washing techniques and maintain control of everything we deliver. Like cleanliness analysis and measurement, washing is also a service we offer on the market.
CUSTOM WASHING PROCESSES, DEPENDING ON REQUIREMENTS
In our washing department, almost all parts undergo an alkaline wash. Most of the oil and shavings are removed during this process. Depending on the requirements, the washing cycle is then adjusted. Each component has its own washing programme with instructions on how the parts should be handled before and after washing. For example, the parts may be put in fixtures prior to washing to facilitate the washing cycle, wash and rinse programmes or ultrasound cleaning. After washing, a particle measuring programme may be required. All of this is to ensure that our own and our customers’ requirements are fulfilled.
