Guyson Equipment Cleans and Maintains Planing and Woodcutting Tools

SKIPTON, U.K. - May 19, 2022 - PRLog -- Guyson International, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of industrial finishing equipment, recently delivered a KS450 ultrasonic cleaning tank and a Formula 1200 benchtop bead blast cabinet to RHW (R H Wilson (Lakes) Ltd.) of Kirkby Stephen, a leading timber importer and supplier, for cleaning and maintaining their wood cutting and planing tools.

The problem was how best to clean 'helical planer blocks' to remove a build-up of pitch, sap, resin and other wood-based materials. These substances adhere to the cutting blades and plane body, affecting their efficiency, performance, and quality.

RHW's Managing Director Rodney Dalton was invited to Guyson's Skipton 'Component Finishing Centre', where they have a wide array of finishing equipment set up for customer trials and demonstrations, in order to find the best solution.

Guyson recommended trying one of their industrial quality KS ultrasonic tanks. Safe and effective cleaning is achieved using ultrasonics, controlled heat, and a mildly alkaline detergent solution. The highly effective precision cleaning is performed without manual intervention, allowing staff to conduct other tasks while the cleaning is being performed.  Within ten minutes, the helical planer blocks were removed from the demonstration unit and were in pristine condition with no signs of contamination. Mr Dalton was delighted and ordered a mid-sized KS450 ultrasonic tank there and then, stating "Now we can clean them every day and this problem will never occur again."

The KS ultrasonic tanks are available in a range of six standard sizes with capacities up to 248 litres, with larger sizes available upon request. KS tanks allow users to pre-set the exact time and temperature for cleaning, ensuring consistent quality from batch to batch. A simple membrane keypad controls all functions. An LCD panel displays the temperature and time set by the user, the elapsed time since the cleaning process began, and the status of the power supply, heater, and ultrasonics.

Whilst in conversation with Guyson's Sales Manager in the demonstration room, the topic turned to how their other wood cutting and moulding tools are cleaned, as they produce skirting's, architrave, decking and bespoke mouldings, and a Guyson Formula 1200 benchtop bead blast cabinet was also ordered for general workshop reconditioning and metal brightening; as some tools are steel, so can oxidise. Guyson 'Honite glass beads' were included with the cabinet so the oxide layer can now be safely removed without damaging the tooling.

Guyson's Customer Service Department can arrange free 'try before you buy' ultrasonic cleaning or blast finishing trials on your wood cutting tools to prove the process and give recommendations on the most suitable equipment for your needs - phone 01756 799911 or email today
