WIFI has become something that a lot of people can't seem to live without, a recent study by Iconic Displays found that 75% of people say 1 week without Wi-Fi would

We’ve had some great feedback from our customer who has fitted his new Easson DRO with our M-DRO 350mm (14") Magnetic Linear Encoder & Series Mini Head with 160mm (6 1/4 inch) Magnetic Tape Encoder on to his Warco WM180 Lathe Machine.

Our customer has mounted main brackets on the back to the saddle by using the mini head and has manufactured extension T-piece to the cross slide for the read head to live under. He also had to extend the splashback by 5 or 6 inches to allow for the travel of the longer cross slide. The thick rubber sheet he has laid there to make sure all the chips and oil comes back into the lathes tray, and not all over his bench behind.

spray gun comparison
The purpose of this cleaning test was to demonstrate the cleaning method and capabilities of the ultrasonic cleaning function, accompanied by our Flux Cleaner Solution.

The Spray gun presented is contaminated with adhesive, which has settled and formed into a rubbery like substance that is stuck to the spray head, along with its components. As soon as cleaning started, the cavitation process could be seen in action, as some grime is seen lifting. At this stage, there were no visible signs of the adhesive lifting.

After 5 minutes, the Adhesive had started to soften, although shows no signs of lifting. However after 10 minutes, 95% of the adhesive is still very much resident, but we found that the adhesive had softened to the extent that it can be brushed away. To test this theory, a paintbrush was used and successfully brushed away the adhesive, easily. Instead of a paintbrush, we would recommend a spiral brush and a bristle brush. After running the cleaning cycle for a total of 15 minutes the adhesive was readily brushing away.
