Customised cleaning solutions for machining

BvL offers a comprehensive portfolio for precision cleaning

Machining and the associated turning work are central steps in the manufacturing processes of a variety of different industries. This machining of metals produces various types of contamination in different work steps. The reliable cleanliness of the workpieces before further machining or after the completion of precision components must be absolutely ensured. This is the only way to avoid production downtimes and quality degradation. BvL Oberflächentechnik GmbH offers a comprehensive range of cleaning systems for a variety of different requirements. We are presenting a small selection from the many possible systems.

Geyser removes firm burrs with high pressure

The BvL Geyser high-pressure process is ideal for removing swarf and firm burrs. A high-pressure pump generates a water jet which is used for cleaning, deburring and paint stripping, depending on the requirements. The components are cleaned reliably with an adjustable pressure of up to 3,000 bar and a volumetric flow of up to 48 l/min. The GeyserVM high-pressure unit is the core of any high-pressure cleaning unit from BvL. Different nozzle systems allow individual processing. For bores and channels in the component, for example, a lance system is installed with a nozzle that rotates 360° around the longitudinal axis of the lance system. The high kinetic energy breaks the burrs and detaches them from the component.

Focus on clean components

The NiagaraMO basket washing system uses a different cleaning principle. The compact flood/spray system allows thorough all-round cleaning through rotation of the parts baskets or parts carriers around the horizontal axis. The front loading with a roller-guided holding fixture allows direct linking to the existing production process. An additional stationary table with cross-moving in feed and discharge makes even faster throughput times possible, even on components with complex shapes. Optional ultrasound cleaning achieves particularly good cleaning results.

Continuous cleanliness

The YukonDA continuous system is designed for a production process with continuous material flow. The parts pass through the successive treatment zones in an in-line process (synchronised if required). The parts to be cleaned are moved past the continuous nozzle frame with offset nozzle positioning. This nozzle system as well as the load capacities and dimensions are individually adapted to the corresponding components. Different wet treatment zones for washing, degreasing, phosphating, rinsing and passivating as well as for drying can be arranged sequentially as required.


At the Turning Days trade fair in Friedrichshafen from 19 to 22 February 2019, BvL Oberflächentechnik GmbH will provide information on the high level of flexibility of BvL systems and the integration options for high-pressure deburring with the Geyser unit.
