Gala’s Vibratory Finishing System
Cleaning of contaminated parts and components is an absolute must to bring the parts to their original working condition. It increases the operational efficiency. If the volume of cleaning required is massive, manual cleaning is ruled out. One has to opt for mechanized cleaning so as to avoid downtime and enhance productivity.
Gala Precision Engineering, known for its standing and reputation for over 25 years, offers one stop solutions for deburring, finishing, washing & cleaning of machinery parts on a mass scale.
“When you switch over to machine cleaning, you save up to 40% on expenses incurred on account of parts cleaning,” says Anand Kaundanya, Chief Operating Officer, Gala Precision. Gala, known for its profound domain knowledge and vast experience, conceptualizes, designs and builds cleaning machines, most of them customized to suit specific requirements.
Gala recommends the following four steps to optimize savings in the industry:
Gala has a number of case studies quantifying the savings achieved in specific applications at customers’ places. One such case is the solution it provided to a customer for removing oil, loose chips and burr from mine hammer assembly parts where the input contamination was 10 mg Millipore and the output cleaning requirement was 2mg Millipore. The client was using manual wash involving high labour, improper cleaning, lower productivity, and high cleaning cost. Gala studied this problem and recommended a Multistage Ultrasonic Cleaning System using the Alkaline degreasing compound as the cleaning media. The process involved ultrasonic cleaning in the first stage, rinsing in the second stage and hot air drying in the final stage. The result was excellent. The client acknowledged the three tangible benefits viz.
(a) Uniform cleaning
(b) No manual intervention, and
(c) 70% Reduction in labour cost.

In the 2nd case, the component was a Brake pad which had to be cleaned from dirt, dust and oil, achieving an output of 2.8 mg Millipore. The client was using cloth and manual cleaning. Gala supplied a Conveyorised Spray Washing Machine and an Alkline degreasing compound for spray wash, rinsing and hot air drying. This enhanced the productivity by 80%.
In the 3rd case, the components involved were Aerosol Aluminium parts which needed to be kept free from heavy drawing oil, dust, dirt and dull finish inside. The party was already using Vibratory finishing and manual cleaning. Gala recommended switch over to Two Stage Ultrasonic Cleaning and Steel ball vibratory finishing. The degreasing, was done using Alkaline compound as the media. With this the customer could achieve 100% oil removal without any manual intervention. The finish turned out to be consistent and the productivity also improved substantially.
In yet another case, the problem posed was removal of heavy grease, oil and dirt from bearings. The client was using spray wash up to 10 bar resulting in insufficient and inconsistent cleaning. Gala offered them a Conveyorised Multistage High Pressure Spray Washing Machine involving processes like high pressure spray wash up to 10-12 bar, rinsing and hot air drying. This resulted in 100% removal of grease and oil, and uniform cleaning.
