The Story Behind a Machining Background Photo

The Story Behind a Machining Background Photo

I had to make a number of changes when I joined the Production Machining editorial team. Picking a new background photo for was not high on my list of things to do, but it was on my list, nonetheless.

Over the years, I have visited a number of shops with Swiss-types and turn-mills, so I knew I had taken multiple photos that might be well-suited. When I revisited about ’s use of a Nakamura-Tome Super NTMX bar-fed turn-mill with B-axis milling spindle, lower tool turret, and main and subspindles of equal horsepower, I found the photo shown above. (These machines are distributed by Methods Machine Tools.)

Is Cleaning with Solvent More Beneficial than Aqueous Cleaning?

Aqueous cleaning has been used as a method for precision cleaning for a long time, but its efficiency and sustainability has been debated through the years compared with its solvent-based alternative. To understand both cleaning methods, Venesia Hurtubise, technical chemist, MicroCare Corp., has compiled the following details about both processes.

Aqueous cleaning, or water-based cleaning, is particularly useful when combining the cleaning process with other procedures such as depositing rust preventers and brightener coatings. However, because the power to clean with water alone is weak, water is treated with a variety of compounds, including detergents or surfactants, builders, emulsifiers, saponifers, sequestering agents and chelating agents to strengthen its cleaning ability.

Aqueous Processes Offer Safe, Effective Cleaning

Aqueous Processes Offer Safe, Effective Cleaning

Increasing environmental concerns and safety issues associated with chlorinated solvents is leading many manufacturers to consider aqueous cleaning processes. Ozone depletion, worker safety considerations and updated regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regarding air, water and soil contamination are all concerns of companies using chlorinated solvent cleaners.

Hubbard-Hall offers the following information to help precision machine shops understand ultrasonic and mechanical cleaning, which are aqueous processes that can replace chlorinated solvent cleaning.

For optimum functionality, components of the used in must adhere to strict cleanliness standards. To reach this level, relies on an Ecoclean EcoCcore machine in its plant in Juarez, Mexico. Operating with a hydrocarbon cleaning medium, the EcoCcore手机奔驰宝马押注技巧 is well suited for Cummins’ application, providing improvements in turnaround times, process reliability and cost efficiency.

Cummins Emission Solutions manufactures exhaust aftertreatment systems for diesel engines. These systems are employed in both commercial vehicles and machinery. Its portfolio is comprised of feeding and dosing units for urea solutions, which are a key element in the SCR systems designed to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. , established in 2014 in the Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez, is among the sites where these feeding and dosing systems are built.
