The Role Of Ultrasonic Cleaning In Metal Finishing

Metal finishing or coating is an all-inclusive term used to describe the process of placing some type of metal coating on the surface of a metallic part, typically referred to as a substrate. It can also involve the implementation of a process for polishing, cleaning, or otherwise improving a surface. Metal finishing consists of electroplating, a process of depositing metal ions onto a substrate through an electric current. In fact, plating and metal finishing are sometimes used conversely. Nonetheless, the metal finishing industry includes a wide range of processes, each offering its own user benefits.

These various industries include the automotive, aerospace, appliance, electronics, and telecommunications industries. Industrial metal finishing is in control of many innovations, such as many automobile parts, dental fillings, certain metal fasteners used for construction, and so on.

Metal finishing addresses some of the built-in flaws of certain types of metals by adding up a layer or treatment that creates something new.

Types of Metal Finishing

The type of metal finishing used for a specific application depending on the type of metal and the application itself, as well as the type of treatment needed. Other factors include the time and cost involved.

You can find a few examples of metal finishing techniques below:

1) Electroplating – A metal or metal alloy is deposited onto the surface of a substrate metal that is immersed in a bath with the help of an electric current.

2) Electroless Plating – It is similar to electroplating, but uses a chemical reaction to facilitate the metal coating instead of electric current.

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

Simply put, Ultrasonic Cleaning is the use of sound waves through the cleaning chemical to create microscopic implosions, detaching contaminants from surfaces, and the complex geometry of components. The imploding bubbles act like microscopic scrubbing brushes throughout the cleaning tank and eliminate dirt from all over the items and materials such as automobile parts, industrial parts, Jewellery, dental and lab equipment, etc far more adequately than most other methods.

The Supersonics ultrasonic cleaner uses ultrasound’s high frequencies to create movement in the liquid to remove contaminants from equipment surfaces.

Why Ultrasonic Cleaning is Important for Metal finishing?

The metal parts that need to be coated have to be effectively cleaned for coatings and cladding to comply. In ultrasonic cleaning systems, the parts are immersed in a bath of pure water or an alkaline-based solution. A high-power ultrasonic generator transfers an electrical signal to an ultrasonic transducer which is placed in the bath and produces ultrasonic waves in the liquid at a selected frequency. The ultrasonic waves generate microscopic cavitation bubbles that assemble a strong scrubbing action against the metal surfaces in the bath, by dislodging particles and removing contaminants. The bubbles are active wherever there is a cleaning solution and they can hence penetrate into dead-end holes, crevices, and inside surfaces. Supersonics' Ultrasonic systems clean everywhere and remove all kinds of contamination.
