Feeding the cleaning and pre-treatment systems is carried out, according to the desired through-put, purely manually, semi-automatically, or fully automatically. It is also possible to incorporate robots, adapted to the timing of the existing or planned system.
The sequencing of the cleaning or pre-treatment process can, in the simplest case, be in one step, complex cleaning processes can follow in 10, 15 or more steps. The individual steps in the case of multiple-chamber systems are usually:
Pre-cleaning -> main cleaning -> rinsing -> dripping off -> drying.
In this procedure the application of corrosion protection, or phosphating can also be integrated. All the steps, dwell times and temperature controls are individually programmed and thereby adapted to the respective requirements.
