Ransohoff IMTS 2022

Ransohoff will introduce a host of advanced cleaning solutions at the IMTS 2022 in Chicago, Illinois, September 12 - 17, 2022. Visitors to the Cleaning Technologies Group Booth #338774 will be introduced to several new products, technologies, and services. Among the new technologies exhibited at the show will be:

Lean-Jet RB-2: This Aqueous Immersion Cleaning System uses a triple-action washing and rinsing process consisting of agitation, spray impingement, hydraulic purging through immersion and rotation, ultrasonics, and heated blow-off drying. The triple-action batch cleaning process was specifically developed to process a broad range of challenging parts, especially those with internal bores, passages and complex geometries, making this system capable of meeting critical cleaning expectations. The LeanJet RB-2 offers an automated basket loading option that will be on display.

LeanVeyor: The LV conveyor parts washing system is engineered for lean manufacturing, while reducing floor space requirements and providing exceptional cleaning and drying performance. We use a common-sense approach to component choice and placement for quick and efficient service and access. All stages are insulated and compartmentalized with individually adjustable exhaust dampers, reducing system heat loss.

IMTS 2022 Event

Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics will introduce a host of advanced cleaning solutions at the IMTS 2022 show in Chicago, IL September 12 - 17, 2022. Visitors to the Cleaning Technologies Group Booth #338744 will be introduced to several new products, technologies, and services. Among the new technologies exhibited at the show will be:

Torrent M Series: automated ultrasonic aqueous cleaning systems for high precision Medical and Pharmaceutical cleaning applications. The Torrent is a single chamber, front loading rotary basket style machine that features 640 watts of Blackstone-NEY single or multi-frequency Ultrasonics for vacuum and non-vacuum immersion wash or rinse, basket rotation with user selected speed, direction and short cyclic modes, compressed air blow off, spray rinsing and hot air dry or vacuum dry with hot air assist.

The Torrent M Series machines are self-contained, skid mounted machines designed for both single pass and multiple pass chemistries utilizing onboard reservoirs while reducing water consumption through a broad range of user defined machine operation parameters.

Milling and cutting

The smallest particles or thinnest layer of film residue can have a negative impact on the performance of today’s manufactured components. Compromised parts can impair the quality and functionality of finished goods to the extent that costly rework and delays are required.

Considering the demands of compliance regulations and lean manufacturing best practices, the pressure to produce flawless manufactured parts has never been greater. Cleaning is a critical part of the process, and it needs to be accomplished in a way that does not delay or inhibit production. This can present a serious challenge for manufacturers in a wide range of industries.

Cleaning Technologies Group is the industry leader in parts cleaning equipment and dedicated to delivering practical and effective solutions for a wide range of general manufacturing applications. Through our Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics division we offer ultrasonic cleaning equipment for efficient precision cleaning that is environmentally safe and able to meet the demands of challenging parts cleaning applications.

Introducing the perfect washer for high volume cleaning applications

RBS Modular System

The RBS Modular System is an automated immersion cleaning system that can be expanded as needed to meet your process requirements. The RBS Modular System is a dedicated inline process that includes a Wash, Rinse, Ultrasonic Wash, Ultrasonic Rinse, Heated Blow Off and a final Vacuum Drying System. This system is set up to process parts in a basket or on a fixture. The RBS Modular System can handle parts up to 1100 LBS (500kg) and can do up to 15 cycles per hour.

The RBS Modular System cleans using a washing and rinsing process of agitation, spray impingement, hydraulic purging through immersion and rotation, ultrasonics, and heated blow-off drying. The "triple action" batch cleaning process was developed specifically to process a broad range of challenging parts, especially those with internal bores and passages and complex geometries, making this system capable of meeting critical cleaning expectations.

CNC Cleaning Machinery

Ultrasonic cleaning is a proven method for the safe and effective removal of contaminants from optical components and assemblies. The compounds are used to polish mating surfaces to a perfectly smooth flat surface. In these applications it is absolutely critical that complete cleaning is accomplished while also avoiding scratching or otherwise compromising the product.

The sensitive components used in laser and optic applications must be precision cleaned to provide optimal performance. When contaminants such as smoke or resin accumulate on parts, available power to the equipment is reduced, and may result in damage. Anything less than entirely clean optics can also significantly reduce engraving and cutting quality.

Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics offers a host of cleaning technologies that meet the unique requirements involved with the cleaning of optics, flat panel, and laser components. Our team has developed customized solutions for glass and quartz etching, rinsing, LCD display grade glass, prisms, polycarbonate and ophthalmic lens, laser and fiber optics, aluminum device housings, and more.

Berrings with plated surfacing

Surface treatment applications require a clean substrate that is entirely free of contaminants. Not only does this help to provide a lasting metal finish, it also promotes product uniformity.

Ultrasonics Are Effective For Many Surface Treatments

Proper cleaning and rinsing promote the best results in plating and surface finishing processes such as:

  • Electroplating
  • Anodizing
  • Pickling
  • Passivation
  • Etching
  • Stripping

Ultrasonic cleaning uses the power of high-frequency sound for the complete and efficient removal of contaminants. Ultrasonic cleaning has proven very effective in ensuring that part surfaces are absolutely clean, due in part to the ability of ultrasonics to thoroughly clean the complete wetted surface area, including blind holes and crevices. Cavitation is the key to the effectiveness of ultrasonic cleaning, providing the power to blast dirt from surfaces. It has the added benefit of reaching every wetted surface of the object to be cleaned, including intricate crevices.
