The value chain in production is constantly being optimized, and industrial parts cleaning has long since been a vital link in that chain. To a large extent, that is down to family-run company MAFAC, one of the global market and technology leaders in the field of aqueous parts cleaning. The company's portfolio currently includes a wide range of compact machinery that can meet a diverse range of cleaning requirements. However, since optimization processes rarely result in absolute perfection, not even MAFAC can afford to be content with what it has already achieved. At EMO Hannover 2017, the company is setting out to show just how much potential there still is to save even more energy in parts cleaning operations.
MAFAC is exhibiting its Java spray-flood cleaning machine and Elba spray cleaning machine in Hannover to demonstrate how much energy its own range can save. Key features include the patented process of kinematic cleaning and drying, thermal machine shielding, sound insulation and the Heat X heat exchange module, which is used to heat cleaning baths. It is claimed that these measures alone deliver up to 83 percent in savings overall. What's more, the company is not just presenting its own calculations as evidence - studies have also been carried out as part of the ETA Factory research project with university TU Darmstadt.
