Rotor Engine Block Washer
Engine Piston Carousel Washer

Background:

This car manufacturing company is at the leading edge of quality. Parts are constantly pulled off the line, cleaned and measured.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

Parts have to be clean and dry before being put into a CMM (coordinate measuring machine) unit. The engine block in question is big, heavy, and complex.

Solution/System:

This RTO-R-4000 rotor parts washer spins the engine block on a horizontal axis so the contaminants (chips and oil) and the residual water are completely flushed from the blind holes and passageways. The system has a dolly that easily rolls into the spray chamber and locks itself into the rotor.
