Why You Should Be Using Ultrasonic CleaningSource: Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.
Clean punches and dies are essential to maintaining the integrity and efficiency of your tooling investment, as well as the quality of your product. Ultrasonic cleaning has long been considered the most effective, nondestructive way to clean tools – from medical instruments to tablet tooling. The Tableting Specification Manual (TSM) states, “An ultrasonic bath is ideal for cleaning tooling.” This high-tech cleaning process also saves time, reduces cost and is better for the environment.
Why Cleaning is Important
Dirty tools can cause tool binding, which can result in damage to the tooling and the tablet press. Keeping tools clean will decrease the chance of premature tool wear, allow lubrication to be more effective, and the machine to run more efficiently – which will increase product yield.
