WICHITA, KS - IceClean Systems says it has acquired all of CryoKinetics abrasive belt cleaning technologies and licenses, and used them in the development of its new abrasive cleaning equipment for both on-sander and off-sander applications.
Raymond Friend, president of IceClean systems, says the award winning technology will return to AWFS Fair 2015 in Booth #10056. When shown previously at the woodworking fair, the technology won the Sequoia Award for Leadership in Environmental Innovation, and in 2013, three of the four Visionary awards - Safety, Innovative Technology, and Ergonomics.
“We acquired CryoKinetics’ Abrasive Belt Cleaning technology and licenses, and made considerable advancements in technology to increase its effectiveness and industrial durability, at a lower price point,” says Friend.
IceClean Systems now offers a PLC controlled sanding belt cleaning system, called IceClean-On, that is installed on sanders and uses a patented process incorporating dry ice particles and/or other mixed media (for thata part of the process patents are pending) to remove the wood dust buildup from both paper and cloth–backed sanding belts.
The new systems can be installed on all sanders (wide-belt, narrow belt, bag, and edge sanders) and can reduce costs to increase profits for panel products, flooring, cabinets, furniture, and all other kinds of wood products and sanded coatings.
IceClean-On is an automatic system, but in many cases a manual version system can be used, providing more economical approach that is effective for smaller producers.
For off-sander abrasive belt cleaning, IceClean Systems offers “IceClean-Off,” a PLC-controlled sanding belt cleaning cabinet that cleans combinations of common-sized sanding belts.
