Dürr Ecoclean will exhibit two parts washers used to clean and degrease batch loads and CNC-machined metal parts in baskets, as well as its SnapPlanner 3D planning software.
The two parts washers illustrate two different cleaning technologies. The EcoCBase W3 chamber washer relies on aqueous immersion flood washing with a vacuum-dry process. The parts washer is said to consume less energy than conventional drying technology. The EcoCBase P2 is designed to remove oils, greases, emulsions and chips. It is part of the company’s Green Degreasing family of environmentally friendly washers.
The company also offers its 3D virtual planning tool, SnapPlanner. This software is said to help machining manufacturers select their ideal cleaning technology based on a number of factors. The software can calculate load and basket sizes, volumes, weights, and throughputs for various industrial cleaning machines. Factors that influence a production part’s cost-per-unit can include initial equipment costs, personnel, number of shifts, operating costs and more.
