Metallform’s baskets for bulk parts have no enclosed surfaces, corners or edges. This design gives ultrasonics and spray jets unfettered access to parts, improving the cleaning processes and promoting an effective exchange of media, the company says. Removed contaminant is flushed from the basket quickly and can be removed by the filter. Additionally, the carry-over of cleaning media is minimized, resulting in longer periods between bath changes and improved system availability. In addition, the easy accessibility of parts reduces the required drying time.

The company uses CAD technology to access areas such as specific bore holes and undercuts to remove particles and film-like contamination. Minimizing the contact points between the component and the workpiece holder ensures consistent cleaning quality in a short period of time, the company says.

The baskets are made of stainless steel rounds with electrolytic polished surfaces. The durable material is suitable for many cleaning media and prevents components from being re-contaminated by the workpiece holder, and baths from being contaminated by corrosion and zinc separation.
