This company is a leading high volume machine shop, manufacturing small elbows and pipe parts out of copper and aluminum. These parts are heavily soiled with oils and chips.
The customer was cleaning parts in an older dip agitation system that was not adequately cleaning the parts, removing the chips and separating the chips from the wash sump.
JRI Cleaning Systems provided a safer, more efficient alternative by automating the process. This drastically reduced labor, water, and detergent costs. This industry leader has found JRI washers to be integral to the services that they provide to their customers.
A large manufacturer of guns was having difficulty cleaning frames, barrels, and revolver drums after a buffing process. As the components come from the buffing process, they are literally covered in buffing compound, and it was a challenge to remove.
The customer was using a multi-step manual system, and it was very labor intensive. They had cost justification to move to an automated cleaning process, however they had to be insured that the parts would exit the system perfectly clean and ready for assembly.
Of special difficulty were the internal bores of the gun barrels.
This leading manufacturer of lawn mower blades was having safety issues with their current heat treating process. The last stage in the heat-treat process was a quench oil dip.
Prior to being dipped in the quench oil, the parts were taken via a monorail to a separate location in their plant to be handled by a robot for further modification. This had to be completed before they were shipped to the lawn mower manufacturer to be installed onto the mowers.
This process was causing excess oil to be dripped onto the floor and cause a hazard for their employees and the end user.
The customer is a manufacturer of copper fittings. Due to the nature of the fittings and the production rate that was required, a standard inline pass through machine would not work for this application. Floor space was at a minimum for the customer.
JRI was presented with the task of finding a washer that could wash a large number of small parts in a very small footprint. The customer wanted to eliminate the need for an operator to wash the parts from the cutting machine.
