Different Types of Parts Washers Parts washers are used to help maintain the excellent working condition of the parts for further processing. These machines can be classified as Manual, semi-automated, and fully automated. Manual – These part washers are slowly being depleted in the manufacturing industry because of its manual operation, wherein it involves hand […]
Fused Deposition Modeling, also known as FDM is one of the most widely used additive manufacturing processes in use today for creating prototype and functional production parts for industry. By depositing layers of molten engineered plastic through a fine tip, parts are created out of thin air from a computer generated 3D rendering. The process […]
The bath temperature of your cleaning tank is critical to getting the best results. Whether you are cleaning by hand with a brush, using a pressure spray cabinet, a submersion agitation tank, a submersion tank with pressure nozzles or eductors, or an ultrasonic tank, water temperature is key. Just like when Goldilocks broke into the […]
What Electronics Can Be Cleaned in an Ultrasonic Cleaner? There are many electrical items that can be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner using a low pH cleaning solution without using deionized water in the ultrasonic tank. Rule of thumb for cleaning electronics: if the item has an LCD display, do not place the item in […]
A fire in your home can be a frightening and devastating experience, and the damage it causes is beyond your control. However, as you prepare to assess and clean up, there are steps you can take to minimize damage and keep yourself and your relatives safe. Ask when it is safe to enter a house or […]
The medical industry maintains high and rigorous cleaning standards for all instruments used in surgery, as well as other items introduced into the body, such as medical implants. Traditionally, this has meant sterilization of items using high pressure and steam, such as in an autoclave. However, one of the issues with the most complex modern […]
What is Metal Finishing? Metal finishing is a process where a coating or other treatment is added to the metal surface of an object in order to strengthen it, making it corrosion-resistant or to give it some other quality not found in the original metal surface. It is used across a variety of industries and […]
What is Precision Cleaning? It’s important to distinguish between “regular cleaning” and “precision cleaning.” True precision cleaning involves removing all contaminants from the surface of the object to be cleaned. Precision cleaning is vital to the success of industries as varied as aerospace, defense, medical implants, computer tech, and pharmaceutical. In fact, parts in these […]
Winter can be a tough time for bike cleaning, especially on the cassettes, the cluster of sprockets located on the rear hub of your bike. Cassettes provide a range of gearing options for your chain to run on. The range of gear ratios allows you to vary your pedaling revolutions per minute in order to […]
Americans generate somewhere between 300 to 400 million tons of garbage every year. Out of environmental concerns for how burning affects air quality, most solid waste ends up in landfills. Chances are you live within 10-20 miles of a landfill, and if your community is anything like most in the United States, your municipal government […]
When it comes to industrial parts cleaning, there are many options available to the consumer, from the type of cleaning unit used to whether to use solvents or detergents to break down stubborn grime on objects to be cleaned. Whether to choose solvents or detergents in cleaning is a vital choice that touches on everything […]
Cleaning industrial parts Two common industrial cleaning type machines: ultrasonic and agitation washers. In one sense, ultrasonic cleaning is agitation cleaning, just at a microscopic scale. Both kinds of cleaning have their benefits and uses and are used for precision and industrial parts cleaning across industries. What is ultrasonic cleaning? Ultrasonic cleaning makes use of the physical […]
In the late 1990s, the children’s TV show, Bob the Builder famously asked: “Can we fix it?” Maybe you’re asking a similar question, but about ultrasonic cleaners: “Can an ultrasonic cleaner clean it?”In most cases, the answer is “yes it can.” So, what is ultrasonic cleaning? First off, what is ultrasonic cleaning and how does it work? […]
Surfactants are substances that when added to a liquid, reduce its surface tension. Detergents are one type of surfactant, and when they are added to water, they increase its spreading and wetting properties.
Many of the parts we place in ultrasonic cleaning systems don’t need—or can’t stand—detergents. Semiconductor wafers, some surgical instruments, many printed circuit boards, delicate antiques, and dental prosthetics are just a few of them.
Have you been looking into adding an ultrasonic cleaner to your business or home? If you have, then you know how powerful a tool an ultrasonic cleaner is.
Regular mold cleaning is the simplest defense against issues that cause unscheduled production interruptions.
You’ve been thinking about, or have already purchased, a brand new ultrasonic cleaner from Omegasonics. You are getting ready to set your first batch of parts to be cleaned, and you realize you just aren’t sure how you should be putting the parts into your cleaner—or maybe you are an old hat, and you want to make sure you are getting the most out of your unit.
