This is a pedestal free standing resin cleaner with optional centrifuge for cleaning and removal of resin from brushes and roller brushes. We supplied a batch of 30, as seen fully packaged in the background of the main photo sets with proposed forward production of similar sized batches.
Designed in liaison with the end customer, we produced a prototype for approval, integrated design changes and moved onto a preproduction run of 30. Design was carried out using solid works with all drawing and models being produced by Paramount. The system is a solvent tank for cleaning brushes manually by dipping and immersing into the 20 litre capacity tank with an optional centrifuge fitting for pneumatic powered spinning of brushes to remove any residual solvent.
All components were made from stainless steel 304 because of the caustic nature of the process with the bulk of sheet metal being 1.5mm thick.
The work was carried out on the CNC punch followed by CNC folding operations and tig welding where required. As with many projects of this nature there was a lot of assembly of fixtures and fittings such as hinges, pneumatics, lid stays, foot pedals, and labelling etc. The internal mesh tray was fully punched in-house and folded accordingly. The centrifuge housing was sheet rolled and seam welded.
Each tank was leak tested by filling with water and all seam welds were treated with a stain removal process to remove weld discoloration.
The design to preproduction stage took around 6 months as tanks were sent out for approval and testing/sampling in the industry.
