Cleaning Stamping Parts for Durable Performance
Have you ever wondered how to keep your stamping parts in perfect condition?
The cleaning of stamping parts is essential to ensure the quality of the final product and to facilitate downstream processes such as coating, welding or assembly, as residues used during stamping, such as oil, lubricant or dirt, can create problems in downstream processes.
In the intricate world of parts manufacturing and stamping, the cleanliness of these components emerges as a fundamental pillar to ensure not only their functionality, but also their durability over time.
This is an undeniable reality: the cleaning of stamping parts is not simply a mechanical taskbut a vital act that determines the longevity and efficiency of the whole system.
In a universe where every piece fits together like a key part of a jigsaw puzzle, the importance of keeping each element at its peak performance cannot be underestimated.
Cleaning is not just a routine, but a ceremony that preserves the very essence of the stamping machinery, allowing it to operate at its full potential.
ICER Elevates Excellence with Rotary Drum Washer for Cleaning Stamped Brake Parts
When ICER, a leading manufacturer of brake systems, faced the challenge of improving the quality and efficiency of cleaning their stamped brake parts, they did not hesitate to contact us in their search for a comprehensive solution.
The accumulation of degreasing residues, the persistent presence of contaminants and the need for effective drying required a robust and effective response so as not to create problems in downstream processes.
The response to this challenge came with the implementation of an innovative rotary drum tunnel washing machine at ICER's facilities. This machine, equipped with four key processes: degreasing, rinsing, passivation and drying, emerged as the complete solution to address each stage of the cleaning process with precision and efficiency.
Cleaning process steps for stamping parts
These are the 4 phrases that are carried out for the cleaning of a stamping process.
At this stage, the stamped parts undergo a washing process to remove any residue, oil or loose particles that may have adhered during the stamping process.
Washing is essential to prepare the parts for the next stages and to ensure a clean surface.
The machine ensures thorough cleaning without affecting the structural integrity of the parts thanks to its design and the use of suitable detergents to remove oils and drilling oils.
After washing, the parts go through a rinsing stage to remove any residue of the cleaning agents used.
This step is crucial to ensure that no chemical residues are left behind that could affect the quality of the final finish or the adhesion of subsequent coatings.
The passivation phase involves treating the surface of the stamped parts to improve their corrosion resistance.
This process often involves the use of chemical solutions that create a protective layer on the metal, reducing susceptibility to oxidation and improving the durability of parts in corrosive environments.
After completing the above stages, the parts go through a drying process to remove any remaining liquid residue.
Drying is carried out with hot air.
Proper drying is essential to avoid the formation of water spots or residues on the surface of the parts.
These steps are common in stamping cleaning processes that aim not only to shape metal parts, but also to ensure quality and durability through proper cleaning and treatment. The specific application of these steps may vary depending on the type of material used and the requirements of the final product.
