A company in the automotive industry, dedicated to the manufacture of components for industrial vehicles, needed a parts washer for truck crankshafts.

Requirements: Washing, blowing and draining of truck crankshafts

Truck crankshafts parts washer

The customer needed an industrial parts washer for the washing and degreasing of forged steel crankshafts with an output of 10 parts/hour. The parts washer had to accept different crankshaft models.

Washing takes place between machining operations and the contamination from machining oil had to be removed. The parts did not need to be dried, although general draining was necessary.

Loading and unloading of the crankshafts would be done using the customer’s hoist, although the parts washer needed to be prepared for loading with an automatic handler in the future.

The parts washer had to incorporate a system for the manual cleaning of lubrication holes, an oil separator and a cleaning system for the loading platform.
