Ransohoff Introduces the New Generation, Robotically Tended Lean-Jet RT-18 Cellular Parts Washer

Ransohoff has developed an innovative, patent pending drive system that adds an entirely new level of flexibility to this already extremely effective cellular design. While the previous generation did provide planetary part rotation at each processing station, the new design allows for each individual table to be programed to rotate a part in multiple directions, at varying speeds, or to pause and position a part for dedicated spaying or probing of critical holes or difficult to address areas.

Ransohoff, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, is proud to introduce its new generation Lean-Jet™ RT-18 robotically tended cellular parts washer. Ransohoff has developed an innovative, patent pending drive system that adds an entirely new level of flexibility to this already extremely effective cellular design. While the previous generation did provide planetary part rotation at each processing station, the new design allows for each individual table to be programed to rotate a part in multiple directions, at varying speeds, or to pause and position a part for dedicated spaying or probing of critical holes or difficult to address areas. As table position is tracked throughout the cycle and parts are positively located at the load and unload station, this design is a perfect match for a robotically tended manufacturing cell.

This cellular washer is available with various configurations offering not only the ability to wash and dry your parts but also rinsing or part cooling if necessary. The RT-18 accommodates a wide range of part sizes, weights and geometries and will produce up to one part, or table of parts, every 30 seconds depending on the application. The new generation Lean-Jet™ RT-18 is available with an Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC and HMI package.
