Any time a part is machined, the oil, grease and chips from the
machining process need to be removed before further part production takes
place. Otherwise, residue and chips inhibit later manufacturing processes,
whether they are performed in-house or at an outside manufacturer.
As many manufacturers can attest it can be a challenge to clean machined
parts to tight specifications in a cost-effective and environmentally sensitive
manner. Manual parts cleaning is not only cost- and labour-intensive, it also
poses a risk for the operator’s health. With the EMC Jetsink Cleaning Station,
Dimac Tooling now offers an automatic alternative to manual solvent wash tanks.
Engineered to automatically clean oily or dirty parts without hand
scrubbing or toxic solvents, the Jetsink cleans parts using only soap and water
in a matter of seconds, thus freeing workers for more productive tasks. The
small footprint, only 711mm x 560mm deep, makes it ideal for cell manufacturing
and for applications where space is limited.
With a large wash capacity of up
to 660mm x 356mm x 381mm (L x W x H), the Jetsink utilises dual 360° spray
manifolds with 80 precision positioned jets to clean with just 95 litres of
ordinary water and detergent. The solution is heated with a 1650W, 110V heater
(13.5kW, 220V heater optional) and then jet sprayed by a recirculating pump. No
venting or special utility connections are needed. Only an electrical hookup is
Standard features include a fully insulated wash cabinet, an 80 jet
spray manifold with easy cleanout port, parts centering wash rack, a wash cycle
timer (up to 30 minutes), a panel-mounted adjustable thermostat, a full ported
1" ball valve drain, and a lid safety interlock switch.
For small items and screw machine parts, an optional Rotary Cleaning
System is available. The rotary cleaning system gently tumbles your parts in a
self contained basket while they are being sprayed. When the wash cycle is
completed, the rotor continues turning, thereby dewatering and drying the part.
Other options include a dip tank basket for soaking hard to clean or
heavily soiled components, a side mounted workstation, and some nylon coated
accessories for protecting fragile parts. Additional information on options and
price schedules can be found on the links located to the left.
