Environmental issues, Industry 4.0 and technology advances within industries are all factors affecting the parts cleaning industry today. For cleaning equipment manufacturers, this translates to more stringent cleanliness specifications, the handling of unconventional materials and higher throughputs, according to Sandro Siminovich, sales/PLM manager for Ecoclean Inc. (formerly Dürr Ecoclean).     

“Although requirements from environmental agencies around the world continue to play an important role in new developments in the cleaning industry, in the past couple of years many of the challenges we faced were a result of technological advances in different fields, which dictated changes necessary to the equipment and cleaning processes,” Mr. Siminovich says in a recent guest column he wrote for Production Machining.
