Omegasonics’ 1900BT and 1900BTX ultrasonic cleaning units enable cleaning of 3D prototype parts. The ultrasonic cleaning process is effective for 3D-printing applications because it generates cavitation energy inside the bath. This creates internal pressure that dissolves the part support structures.

The 20-gallon, plug-and-play 1900BT has a compact cleaning area and is suited for ultrasonic applications where filtration is not required. A low-profile design enables the unit to serve as a hybrid between a benchtop cleaner and a portable floor model. The insulated construction enables placement in an office environment without the need to worry about operating decibels. The unit features a digital timer and temperature control.

The 1900BTX features two cleaning technologies: a water agitation cleaning process and ultrasonic cavitation. Each operates independently to facilitate a thorough but gentle cleaning process. A magnetic drive pump system enables agitation, whereby turbulence is controlled so parts are not damaged. Inside the tank, the part flows circularly to help dissolve the temporary support structure around the part. The flow and heat are both adjustable. The water-agitation tank features a directional spray nozzle that enables the user to spray parts directly. The unit also includes a programmable cycle that enables hands-free cleaning.

A variety of certifications show that the ultrasonic cleaning units perform within the safety parameters required by the Conformité Européene (CE), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
