Macfab offers specialty cleaning in an ISO compliant cleanroom meeting level 7 requirements. Our customers achieve financial savings when components shipped to them require no additional cleaning or finishing on their part. Our internal capability provides you end-to-end solutions for your precision components and sub-assemblies, reducing supply chain risks and transportation costs in addition to directly reducing the paid cost for the part – ultimately lowering your total cost of ownership.
The growing trend of customers having their non-core services outsourced to trusted partners, Macfab responded by significantly investing in specialized finishing and cleaning capabilities that are a direct, logical and cost-effective extension of our machining and manufacturing operations.
The following table is a quick overview of cleaning methods and their benefits.
|Aqueous (Water) cleaning solutions||Part cleaning and removal of films||
|Non-aqueous (Non-water) cleaning solutions||Breaks down the bonds of oils, greases, and cutting fluids on the parts||
More thorough cleaning reduces the risk of oxidation
|Magnetic deburring||Removes light burrs from non-ferrous small parts and improves surface finish||
No coating or fluids
|Vapor Degreasing||Dissolve contaminates and collects in a tank below, preparation of parts for painting or coatings||
Wide range of parts
|Micro Electro-polishing||Removal of microscopic burrs improves surface finish and connection between parts||
Extreme precision and control of the process
|Citric Acid passivation to ASATM-A967-13||Used on stainless steel to prevent corrosion||
Removes free iron ions and forms a protective barrier over the part.
Internally cleaning parts strategically aligns with Macfab’s on site coating processes. The immediate cost elimination of transportation is not the only or most impactful on cost of ownership. Reducing the time between cleaning and coat reduces the chance of corrosion or handling damage to occur. By running exceptionally clean parts through our own coating process, Macfab’s processes are more reliable and have greater capacity for production.
