Aerospace parts cleaning:

 

Highest demands in cleanliness.

A number of well-known international companies in the aerospace industry, OEMs as well as suppliers, rely on parts washers for aqueous treatment made by MAFAC. These applications make highest demands in the cleanliness of the parts which are manufactured from premium-quality materials. Our compact parts washers clean not only new components but also parts to be serviced. With our patented process technologies, we achieve accurate and reliable cleaning results. Our machines are used primarily in engine and turbine manufacture.
