Transducers are made with continuously laminated magnetostrictive 20 kHz elements which deliver more uniform cleaning than the discretely mounted piezoelectric elements used in 40 kHz transducers.
Magnus Engineered Equipment is proud to supply cleaning equipment to many automotive manufacturers and their suppliers. A company utilizes MEE’s 6” diameter submersible radial ultrasonic transducer to clean aluminum pistons manufactured for many global automotive brands.
Diesel engines produce a variety of emission particles due to incomplete combustion. Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) are positioned in the exhaust stream and capture most of these particles. As a result, the filters themselves require periodic cleaning.
A customer purchased a used Magnus Engineered Equipment cleaning equipment at auction and installed it in their facility. They were pleased with the performance and longevity of the equipment and decided to purchase a new cleaning system Magnus Engineered Equipment to meet their exacting cleaning requirements.
Magnus Engineered Equipment is proud to supply a major medical device company with surgical needle cleaning machines. Magnus Engineered Equipment radial ultrasonic transducers deliver exceptional cleaning and our machines utilizing this technology are cleaning needles in North America, South America and Europe.
Magnus Engineered Equipment recently shipped this multi-stage cleaning system to one of our new customer. Sonics and rotation are used to clean complex parts for the aerospace industry. Customized parts baskets are automatically positioned and held by the cleaning equipment
Magnus Engineered Equipment is proud to be a legacy supplier to a major machinery manufacturer and support them in their remanufacturing activities. These twin tanks were recently shipped to their facility and are already cleaning parts for remanufacturing.
Magnus Engineered Equipment is proud to be a supplier to an engine manufacturer. Our customer recently added these two cleaning tanks to their stable of over 40 existing Magnus Engineered Equipment cleaning tanks. Their company has an exceptional reputation for supplying quality rebuilt engines and transmissions.
Magnus Engineered Equipment designed and built a custom 3 door dryer for technology corporation. The dryer fits seamlessly into an existing operation and allows operators to position air wands to dry areas on complex substrates. The doors glide effortlessly up and down reducing operator fatigue and optimizing the throughput.
Magnus Engineered Equipment LLC (MEE) is pleased to announce the achievement of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Standard Certification. “This certification is a testament to our strong focus on quality and an integral part of our continuous improvement culture. By meeting the criteria for this standard, MEE demonstrates our commitment to our customers
Customers rely on Magnus Engineered Equipment’s reputation for building cleaning equipment which lasts a very long time even with extreme service. An example are these wash tanks delivered to Caterpillar for the washing of 3800 lb crankshafts. In-house made pneumatic steel cylinders are used to deliver the required lifting power without failure.
Graphite contaminant can be difficult to remove, especially if the contaminant is embedded in a soft substrate such as brass. Magnus Engineered Equipment powerful ultrasonics quickly remove the contaminant without damage to the underlying substrate.
Often referred to as temporary rivets, cleco fasteners allow parts to be held together until the parts can be permanently bonded. Magnus Engineered Equipment worked together with the Ecolink company to develop a cleco cleaning system. Ecolink chemistry is used in a rotational cleaning system to remove residual adhesive from used cleco’s and make
Magnus Engineered Equipment manufactures PowerSonics TM radial ultrasonic transducers. These transducers are the key component in MEE’s wire cleaning equipment and they deliver in excess of 4000 Watts/gallon of ultrasonic cleaning power. The application of high cleaning energy density from 360 degrees permits high cleaning speeds which are otherwise unattainable.
Congratulations to entire team Magnus Engineered Equipment for the design and installation of a new 28 stage, fully automated fluorescent dye penetrant inspection line. The design met the customer’s cost and space requirements, and permitted them to pass qualification for producing GE turbine blades
Many metals protect themselves from corrosion by forming a passivation layer on their outer surface. This protective layer is composed of metal oxide or metal nitride and is very thin. For stainless steels, the layer may be only 1-3 angstroms thick and for metals such as aluminum and titanium, the layer may be up
Properly applied, ultrasonics can perform a more thorough, more complete cleaning job than any other cleaning method. Ultrasonics is a non-destructive method of cleaning which utilizes sound waves to form and implode vapor pockets on the surface of contaminated parts. This implosion results in the release of stored energy that creates a virtual scrubbing
Ultrasonic energy penetrates into crevices and cavities and having the capability to clean entire assemblies without disassembly results in labor savings that makes ultrasonics the most economical way of cleaning. At Magnus we manufacturer our own Ultrasonic transducers and generators that offer unmatched cleaning consistency.
A new customer approached Magnus Engineered Equipment looking for help cleaning parts from adhesive and hot glue dispensing label machines.
