Q. I am looking for in-line parts washing to put at my stamping press. The parts are very light and delicate. I am currently talking with one company about its mini-tunnel sonic machine, because I believe that a conveyor system is the way to go. Do you know of other companies that have this type of system? M.A.
A. One-piece parts handling is thought to be the most efficient if you can correctly coordinate with the balance of your manufacturing process, and it sounds like you have a good plan for yours. The company you mentioned has been in the industry for quite some time, but if you are interested in talking with additional suppliers before making your decision, I suggest you visit the PFOnline Supplier page to find other potential equipment manufacturers that could suit you. Go to PFonline.com, choose the Supplier tab, then the Cleaning & Pretreatment category, and then Parts Washers.
