The purpose of industrial parts cleaning is to ensure the necessary degree of cleanliness required for subsequent processing operations, or for the long-term, trouble-free functioning of the given part or component.

As such, properly cleaned parts bring added value to the industrial manufacturing process. Global trends such as electromobility, lightweight construction, Industry 4.0, sustainability, smaller production runs due to increasing customization, and the onward march of globalisation are posing new challenges for businesses all over the world – including those specialising in industrial parts and surface cleaning. All these issues will feature prominently at the next parts2clean, which runs from 24th to 26th October in Stuttgart, Germany.

“The exhibitors at parts2clean will be presenting cleaning solutions that deliver consistent results economically and efficiently, enabling manufacturers to meet the requisite standards for the cleanliness of industrial parts – not only for now, but also for the long term,” said Olaf Daebler, global director for parts2clean at Deutsche Messe. “We are very pleased about the industry’s enthusiastic response. Moving the show back to its autumn timeslot was definitely the right decision.”

The products and systems on display help users of industrial cleaning technology to maintain their competitive edge in the marketplace. Among the 150-plus companies that had already booked their space by mid-March 2017 are nearly all the major market players and technology leaders represented in each of show’s display categories.

At the Stuttgart venue, trade visitors can learn all about the latest trends and innovations in industrial parts and surface cleaning for a high-tech world. This includes, for example, cleaning plants that have been designed from the outset to be adaptable ? easily and without major investment ? so as to stay in stride with changing needs. Possible scenarios here would be handling different kinds of parts, meeting various cleanliness standards or utilising different processes.

Also on display are cleaning technologies for use in fine and ultra-fine cleaning processes, which make it possible to quickly and economically achieve very high degrees of cleanliness. Responding to the growing industry demands for more highly automated cleaning processes and integration in smart-factory environments, exhibitors at parts2clean will be presenting intelligent automation concepts and solutions for adaptive cleaning processes. These include systems that allow continuous in-line monitoring of the cleaning baths, with fully automatic dosage of additional cleaning agent, continuous acquisition and documentation of all process parameters, and in-line inspection of the resulting cleanliness.
