Dürr Ecoclean turns to Three M Tool for its

Ultra Precision Stainless Steel Cleaning Baskets

German supplier finds best-in-class engineering in USA


(York, Pa.) – German manufacturers are known for the highest-quality, precision engineering. Think Mercedes-Benz. So where does one of the largest German industrial suppliers go for a custom-made wire product? York, Pennsylvania.

Amid the rolling hills of South Central Pennsylvania, home to manufacturing giants like Harley Davidson, Johnson Controls and Dentsply, Three M Tool has become a leader in fabricated wire products. Three M Tool is well-known across North America among experienced buyers for its great customer service, ingenuity, and high-quality – and now one of the leading German cleaning equipment manufacturers is turning to Three M Tool too.


Dürr Ecoclean, Inc. is a leading international supplier of precision industrial cleaning equipment, headquartered in Filderstadt Germany with North American operations based in Auburn Hills, MI. The Ultra Precision Stainless Steel Cleaning Baskets are super rugged, extremely strong and yet are extremely smooth with large openings to effectively clean all types of manufactured parts. Three M Tool developed prototypes that were tested and approved. Special production equipment was designed and built. And full production has begun.


“Collaborating with a cleaning industry leader like Dürr was exciting. We worked with a lot of really smart people there and listened carefully to what they needed. Our final designs have exceeded everyone’s expectation,” says Austin Hunt, President & CEO, Three M Tool. “We have always been committed to developing elegantly designed, high-quality wire products and for an industry leader like Dürr to recognize our work is quite an honor.”


The Ultra Precision Cleaning Baskets and lids are available in standard sizes to match the metric formats, with custom sizes available. All with engaged customer service and substantially short lead times.


This product line will provide Dürr Ecoclean and its end-users with precision cleaning of their parts. The unique, grid style allows for more flow and the welded grid body basket won’t trap any contamination.

Many standard metric sizes and US inch sizes of these ultra-precision, stainless-steel cleaning baskets are available for use in precision cleaning systems manufactured by Dürr Ecoclean, Ransohoff, Branson Ultrasonics, Blackstone-Ney, RAMCO, Cleaning Technologies Group (CTG), JenFab, Proceco, MecWash, Stoelting, and many, many others.
