Precision Products opts for familiar MecWash machines in cleaning system upgrade
Brighton Precision Products engineering company commissioned a new MecWash Duo 400 system, which reduced wash cycle times and water consumption.
Having previously owned a MecWash system that served the company for two decades, Precision Products knew the brand’s reliability and cleaning standards, having used it for CNC turned parts supplied to a wide range of industries, from from aerospace and automotive to hydraulics, telecommunications, and brewing.
Sally Thorley, General Manager of Precision Products, said, “We saved 34% in cycle time to clean one of our high-volume parts and 66% in cycle time to clean our empty tubs, which means that we can now wash them. on a daily basis.”
The East Sussex-based company specializes in precision CNC turned parts, producing low and high volume parts and components on a range of fixed and sliding head CNC machines, with diameters ranging from 2mm to 65mm.
The strict cleaning standards of the precision mechanical industry are met by the Duo 400 implemented by the company, which removes dirt such as chips, coolant and foreign oil.
In order to reduce water consumption in cleaning processes, the MecWash Duo installation has been supplemented with the innovative AquaSave system. AquaSave Technologies is a division of MecWash and its equipment is designed to help maintain the quality of washing machine water. It eliminates the need to dispose of industrial wastewater through a reclamation and reuse process, allowing the water to be recycled. This offers significant advantages for production and the environment.
“We’ve added an AquaSave machine to the unit, which is new for us,” Ms Thorley adds. “We expect a 75% reduction in water consumption.
The versatility offered by the Duo 400 machine allows Precision Products to use its own baskets in cleaning processes. “It was an obvious choice for us to buy from MecWash again, given that we had an older machine that served us well for 16 years. The new machine allows us to use our own baskets, so that versatility offered by the Duo 400 certainly factored into our decision when looking for an upgrade.
John Pattison, Managing Director of MecWash, enthused: “It’s great to have repeat customers and it shows a real vote of confidence in our abilities to produce the highest quality machines that will meet and exceed cleaning requirements. precision engineering industry standards. .
“Precision Products’ decision to implement an AquaSave machine in their facility means that water can be recovered in the cleaning cycle, reducing disposal costs and water rates.”
