Case Study – Fully automated cleaning of small brass components in mass production

Customer

A large manufacturer (established in the 1960s) of small complex brass components.

Problem

  • The customer is manufacturing delicate brass components with blind holes in mass production.
  • 15 lakh components are produced on a daily basis.
  • Due to the sheer volumes being produced, it is impossible to have any manual cleaning technique for the components.
  • Batch type parts cleaning systems are not economical.
  • Traditional conveyorized systems are ineffective as blind holes are not cleaned properly in these systems.

Ralsonics’ Solution

  • Ralsonics designed a screw conveyorized industrial cleaning equipment with separate drums for each cleaning stage.
  • Components were placed in continuous rotating motion wherein they were dipped, filled and emptied with the cleaning solution multiple times in each stage.
  • This ensured complete penetration of cleaning solution in the blind holes
  • 6 stage industrial machine, fully automated with drying unit included
  • Components are loaded in the loading drum and fully cleaned and dried components are unloaded from the unloading drum

Results

  • Near-zero rejection rate
  • Lakhs of components cleaned per shift with zero manual intervention
  • 11 such equipment purchased by the customer for the entire plant
