Cold Jet’s dry ice blasting systems have helped automotive companies cut their mold buildup cleaning costs by as much as $50,000 per year. With Cold Jet, you can easily remove excess grease, sludge, sealant and weld slag during preventative maintenance. Dry ice blast cleaning is faster and more effective than traditional cleaning methods and has helped Automotive companies cut their mold buildup cleaning costs by as much as 70%. One reason is because it does not generate any secondary waste or leave any residual blasting media to clean up or dispose of.
Hurried cleaning is no longer needed when unscheduled maintenance occurs because maintenance workers can quickly complete predictive cleaning with dry ice, minimizing downtime. Cold Jet dry ice blasting systems often produce a complete return on investment in a matter of months.
Cold Jet systems are designed with customer productivity and efficiency in mind and the ideal system is configured depending on the specific cleaning needs of the customer. No other company can provide the various nozzle and accessory arrangements to meet all the cleaning needs in an automotive plant.
The automotive industry has a variety of cleaning dilemmas that need to be addressed. These problems can be solved with the Cold Jet dry ice blasting system. Cold Jet, the technological leader in dry ice blasting, can drastically reduce time spent cleaning within the automotive plant and increase production uptime 75% to 90%. In fact, Cold Jet dry ice blasting systems often produce a complete return on investment in a matter of months. Intensive cleaning is no longer needed when unscheduled maintenance occurs, because electricians and mechanics can now quickly solve any cleaning issues with the Cold Jet dry ice blasting system.
Weld lines can take more than two hours to clean completely by using the traditional methods of hand scraping and chemical use. With Cold Jet, complete weld lines can be cleaned in 25 minutes.
Slush molds require routine spot cleaning in order to remove the tiny grains and TPU burn marks that result in unusable product production. Traditional cleaning methods use aluminum oxide, which is ineffective, causing the molds to be shut down often, in order to perform and entire cleaning on the mold. With Cold Jet, slush molds no longer need to be cleaned with the toxic chemical, aluminum oxide. A thorough spot clean on the molds is achieved, preventing a shut down and allowing increased production.
E-coat, which is typically removed by hand scraping, can be difficult to remove when too thick or in hard-to-reach locations. With Cold Jet, E-coat is easily removed from paint shop rollers, hooks, guide rails, electric motor and reduction gearboxes, perforated shielding and the concrete floor. In addition, spray-booth sensors and floor gates are kept clean and clog-free with regular use of the Cold Jet system.
Urethane foam molds have to be cleaned down to the surface in order to remove the plastic residues and release agents that can cause unsatisfactory gloss levels. Cold Jet blasting systems allow the molds to be cleaned with at least 70% fewer man hours and provide for a complete and thorough clean, otherwise unachievable. The level of clean that Cold Jet systems provide allows for assured part tolerance and smooth part release.
General maintenance on items such as cooling fans, ceiling fans, walls and superstructures can be a time consuming task that takes away from worker productivity. With Cold Jet, these tasks are performed in a matter of minutes, allowing for increased productivity.
