Our products

Ecologic production with maximum precision, high efficiency and demand-oriented energy consumption

 

We are specialized in environmentally friendly cleaning of various engine-, steering system- and gear parts. Pressurized air leaves no residue behind and doesn’t mix with other media e.g. coolants. Above all, our systems are developed in such a way, that in standby mode, the energy consumption is drastically reduced to a minimum.

Surface Aircleaner®

Field of application

  • Between each machining step to increase the cleanliness of the working piece and the production line
  • When switching medium in order to reduce or prevent different media to mix (e.g. before washing machines, before and after honing machines, in transition from wet-machining to dry-machining)
  • To simplify certain secondary processes (e.g. with recurring measuring processes or a clean transfer out of the production line)

Targets

Minimize chips and coolants on the working piece. Raise productivity of the complete production line by reducing downtimes and decreasing maintenance- and service-work.

 Differentiation from the competition

  • Size of the unit (small)
  • Energy consumption only when actively cleaning
  • High availability due to incomplex design
  • Possibility to process variating working pieces in automatic mode
  • No warming up of working pieces
  • No mixing of media
  • Suitable for short cycle times

Precision Aircleaner®

Fields of application

Pre-cleaning of the working pieces followed by a defined cleaning of the contact areas before assembly processes

Targets

To achieve a smooth assembly (e.g. hon template, bearing cap, valve seat insert and guide etc.). Replacement of cleaning systems on a liquid basis.

Differentiation from the competition

  • Size of the unit (small)
  • Consumption of energy only when actively cleaning
  • High availability due to incomplex design
  • Possibility to process variating working pieces in automatic mode
  • No warming up of working pieces
  • No mixing of media
  • Suitable for short cycle times
  • Low investment- and cycle costs

Field of application

Supplement to new machines and retrofitting for existing machines. Please click here for detailed presentations

Targets

Reduction of energy for SurfaceAircleaners and PrecisionAircleaners by 35%.

Differentiation from the competition

  • Independent of central compressed air supplys
  • Increased availability by worldwide service agreements with our partners
  • Efficient precision cleaning possible with higher pressures (up to 6 bar) possible
  • Minimizing investment cost on compressed air supply
  • simultaneity of several SurfaceAircleaner and PrecisionAircleaner due to independence of central supplies
  • „Air on demand“ – KNOTH only produces and consumes air during the cleaning cycles. Workpiece geometry optimized and adapted to the main cycle process

Vacuum Tunnel

Fields of application

Drying units, which can dry off working pieces thoroughly after washing.

Targets

Trouble-free leak tests, residues, which might Trouble-free leak tests, residues, which might cause corrosion, can be removed.

Differentiation from the competition

  • Very compact size of the unit
  • Optimized extraction volume because of adapted inner shape
  • Energy consumption lower because of the optimized extraction volume
  • Service friendly due to high degree of standardization
  • Failsafe drying also with shorter cycle times
  • minimum temperatures of the working piece of 40°C already lead to successful drying
  • Low investment- and cycle costs

Temperature regulating unit

Fields of application

Cooling of working pieces using cooling nozzles heating of working pieces using infrared

Targets

Achieve working pieces with constant

 Differentiation from the competition

  • Constant resulting temperatures even with varying initial temperatures
  • Shorter cycle times possible for smaller working pieces
  • compact and modular build of the unit, reduced space needed (approximately 50% less space needed than conventional solutions)
  • no cooling water needed
