Stainless Steel Basket to Wash Machined Castings:

Application Overview:

Our customer manufactures machined parts that need to be washed in a Ransohoff parts washer.

Specific Requirements:

Our customer needed custom stainless steel baskets to hold heavy castings with machined surfaces securely in a full rotation cleaning process.  The baskets must be easy to load and unload.  The baskets needed to stack and needed to hold as many parts as possible without the parts touching each other.  The Ransohoff Parts Washing Cell was fed by a conveyor system so the basket design needed to move smoothly along the conveyor.

Our Solution:

Three M Tool started with a digital model of the customer’s part and designed crossing rod grids to position and hold the parts securely.  The cleaning system processes a stack of two baskets per cycle, so our design has an extra concentric frame around the top edge to secure the bottom frame of the basket above.  The height position of the parts in the baskets lets the bottom of the basket above to act as the lid for the lower basket, keeping the parts in place when rotated without extra lids.  The carriage within the Ransohoff machine acts as the lid for the top baskets.  The conveyor system bringing the baskets to the parts washing cell used guides and fences to position the baskets.  Our basket design included pads at the corners to interface with the conveyor system.  The custom baskets also have a diamond shaped rod on the bottom face to move smoothly along the conveyor. This parts washing basket is 304 Stainless Steel Construction throughout with a Natural Surface Finish.
