Cleaning Technologies Group’s Ransohoff division offers a new-generation Lean-Jet RT-18 robotically tended cellular parts washer. While the previous generation provided planetary part rotation at each processing station, the new design enables each individual table to be programmed to rotate a part in multiple directions at varying speeds, or to pause and position a part for dedicated spaying or probing of critical holes or difficult-to-address areas. Table position is tracked throughout the cycle, and parts are positively located at the load and unload station.
The cellular washer is available with various configurations offering not only the ability to wash and dry parts, but also to rinse or cool parts if necessary. It can accommodate a range of part sizes, weights and geometries, and can handle one part or table of parts every 30 sec., depending on the application. The Lean-Jet RT-18 is available with an Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC and HMI package.
Editor PickUltrasonic Cleaning is Especially Useful for Precision Parts
Although several types of effective cleaning processes are available, ultrasonic cleaning is the process that’s often chosen to clean parts that are intricate, with blind or threaded holes, various contours or deep cavities. That’s because ultrasonics creates vacuum bubbles that clean on a microscopic level; the small bubbles can get into tight areas for precision cleaning.
