Chemetall, global surface treatment supplier and a global business unit of BASF's Coatings division, is set to present as part of the educational sessions of the Parts Cleaning Exhibition (PCx) held April 25 to 27 at the Greater Columbus Exhibition Center in Columbus, Ohio. David Gotoff, product manager for the North America region, will highlight his 30 years of surface finishing experience when presenting on optimizing aqueous washer programs to achieve consistent and value added cleaning and corrosion protection. 

PCx, co-located with the Precision Machine Technology Show (PMTS), is presented by the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA), and co-presented by Production Machining, Products Finishing and Modern Machine Shop magazines.

Discussing sustainability for aqueous cleaning programs, the presentation emphasizes the importance of cleaning solutions, especially alongside machining applications.

“PMTS does a great job of integrating not only precision machining but also cleaning solutions, with the addition of PCx” says Gotoff.  “When the manufacturer is able to align the aqueous washing system directly with the metalworking process, addressing the specific soils in use and customizing the solutions with a Total Program Management program, significant financial gains may result.”

Developing process control, including automation, maintenance and monitoring assures consistency not only in cleanliness, he says, but also in the ability to preserve the parts from corrosion. 

Key points of system design, product selection, control technology, water chemistry and best practices that can be applied for continuous improvement will be covered in the session. Elements of both cleaning and rust prevention will be included.
