An essential step in manufacturing processes, parts cleaning significantly contributes to product quality and adds considerable value. At parts2clean, taking place from 26th – 28th September in Stuttgart, Germany, Ecoclean will be showcasing a product portfolio optimally tailored to the highly different cleaning applications and requirements in the various industry sectors.
Ecoclean’s range of cleaning applications and cleanliness requirements has never been as broad as today. On the one hand, high technology industry sectors such as semiconductors, medical, sensors and analytics, as well as precision optical, are reliant on the efficient and dependable removal of ultrafine particulate contaminants in the submicron range, and of residual film-type contamination, some of which have a thickness in the nanoscale. On the other hand, the general industry, which encompasses a multitude of sectors, first and foremost presents a need for removing large amounts of chips and machining fluid. Between these extremes, there are countless cleaning tasks with product and sector specific cleanliness specifications.
For these many faceted applications and requirements, Ecoclean and UCM will be presenting an optimally tailored offering of products and services at parts2clean (hall 10, booth C38), which have been conceived to meet the respective cleanliness specifications not only in a stable and reliable but also efficient and resource saving manner.
Sustainable and efficient cleaning solutions for all tasks
One topical section of the Ecoclean stand will be committed to high purity cleaning and will be part of parts2clean’s ‘High Purity Lane’. As part of this area, a UCMSmartLine machine will be on the stand to demonstrate the possibilities of combining standardised modules for process steps – wash, rinse, dry, load and unload – and flexible part transport systems, into solutions capable of meeting even the highest cleanliness requirements.
Another focus for Ecoclean will be general industry, with the nearly endless variety of components – castings, machined workpieces, stamped parts, bent parts, pressed and deep-drawn parts, hydraulic or pneumatic fittings, as well as additively manufactured components – in various materials. Downstream processes such as joining, coating and assembling also call for specific cleanliness levels and reliable functioning of the products. For these tasks, ranging from pre-cleaning via intermediate to final cleaning and precision cleaning, Ecoclean will showcase chamber-type systems of standard and bespoke designs for aqueous and solvent-based cleaning, as well as multi-chamber immersion cleaning systems.
By way of example, an EcoCwave machine will be shown live on the stand to illustrate the various features and process options.
An all-in approach to service
Ecoclean will also provide insights into its new virtual showroom, combining a three-dimensional environment with virtual reality. “The designation ‘showroom’ actually doesn’t do it justice, as nearly every company site can be visited,” explains Ecoclean. “Even the smallest details of the cleaning equipment and systems exhibited can be explored in a three-dimensional space with a VR headset.”
Among other things, this offers customers the possibility to attend cleaning trials live from anywhere in the word and to obtain additional information in the process. This innovative communication platform also conveys the impression that users are physically present.
