Mechanical Cleaning in Sheet Metal Manufacturing

Mechanical Cleaning in Sheet Metal Manufacturing

Mechanical cleaning is a commonly used cleaning method in sheet metal manufacturing, especially for the cleaning of large areas of stainless steel materials. It removes dirt and impurities on the surface of stainless steel materials through the force of mechanical equipment and the combination of cleaning agents to achieve the purpose of cleaning. The following will detail the advantages and disadvantages of mechanical cleaning in sheet metal manufacturing.


1. Advantages:


a. Good cleaning effect: mechanical cleaning can use high-pressure water flow or scrub and other ways to thoroughly clean the surface of stainless steel material, which can effectively remove the dirt, oil and impurities on the surface, and the cleaning effect is good.


b. Wide range of application: mechanical cleaning is suitable for large-scale cleaning of the surface of stainless steel materials, including materials of different shapes and sizes such as plates and profiles, with strong applicability.


c. High degree of automation: mechanical cleaning equipment usually has a high degree of automation, can achieve automatic cleaning and continuous operation, saving labor and time costs.


2. Disadvantages:


A. Large investment in equipment: mechanical cleaning equipment usually requires a large investment, including the cleaning equipment itself and related auxiliary equipment, and the cost is high.


b. High energy consumption: Mechanical cleaning equipment usually needs to consume a lot of water and electricity, high energy consumption, will increase production costs and environmental burden.


c. Slight damage to the surface of the material: During mechanical cleaning, high-pressure water flow or brushing and other forces may cause slight scratches or wear on the surface of the stainless steel material, affecting the surface quality.
