Profitable Internal Cleaning of Automotive Castings
Wheelabrator Advanced Internal Cleaning Machine: Profitable internal cleaning of automotive castings
Modern, high-performance and extended warranty engine blocks and heads require a very high level of contamination removal from external and internal surfaces. Processes must be repeatable, secure and highly efficient in the ultra-competitive automotive market.
Internal cleaning is a complex process that has to be effective in order to protect automotive manufacturers from substantial cost risks in connection with warranties. Traceability is a vital quality assurance aspect.
For suppliers of automotive engine and head castings, who operate in this highly competitive environment, this means two things. The first is the necessity of finding a supplier with a solution that can deliver the required quality and traceability. The second is to turn this into a profitable business activity. Wheelabrator is the supplier with the relevant industry experience to deliver both.
The Wheelabrator Advanced Internal Cleaning Machine is a fully automatic internal cleaning solution that has the flexibility to handle engine heads and blocks of different sizes and geometries, with minimal set up times and costs to deliver consistent and traceable, high quality output in three-shift operation; keeping production running smoothly and uptime to a maximum.
Precision and uptime
A complete set of automatic air blast nozzles blow a specific abrasive shot mix with minute precision into the internal channels to be cleaned. The continuous feeding system eliminates the risk of stoppages to ensure a consistent end-quality result. The advanced control system ensures repeatability together with full traceability of process parameters for consistent compliance with quality standards.
The Wheelabrator Advanced Internal Cleaning Machine is designed to maximise uptime and flexibility through the use of swap-over tools, easy maintenance and high-quality wear parts.
