    Another Fantastic Year at the London Model Engineering Exhibition

    Last week we exhibited at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace and it was yet another fantastic year. Not only were we able to meet some of our great customers face-to-face, but the exhibition saw the launch of our new M-SURE precision measuring tools range.

    Our stand was very popular across the whole weekend and visitors were able to get a hands-on first glimpse of M-SURE, with many of the visitors purchasing from our stand once they tried the metrology tools for themselves. More news will follow on the new M-SURE range which will be available on our website soon. It wasn’t just our measuring tools that were getting all the attention, we also had a lot of attention from our Cases and Ultrasonic Cleaners, which went down well with the model engineers that visited.

    The Spray gun presented is contaminated with adhesive, which has settled and formed into a rubbery like substance that is stuck to the spray head, along with its components. As soon as cleaning started, the cavitation process could be seen in action, as some grime is seen lifting. At this stage, there were no visible signs of the adhesive lifting.

    After 5 minutes, the Adhesive had started to soften, although shows no signs of lifting. However after 10 minutes, 95% of the adhesive is still very much resident, but we found that the adhesive had softened to the extent that it can be brushed away. To test this theory, a paintbrush was used and successfully brushed

    Ultrasonic Cleaners Used to Clean Military Weapons

    Making sure soldiers’ guns are thoroughly cleaned is important to avoid any rust or a reduction in the gun's performance. Scrubbing their guns with equipment such as oil and brushes are now a thing of the past, and now set to be replaced by ‘deep cleaning’ machines such as Ultrasonic Cleaners.

    Soon, Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks may be kept on patrol bases so that soldiers won't have to rely on good old fashioned elbow grease when cleaning the dirt off their artillery. Trials are taking place on selected rifles and machine guns, with the Ultrasonic Cleaners possibly being rolled out to 5 regiments if they prove to be a success.

    Sgt Daniel Birks, who will be overseeing the trial, mentioned that this system would give the soldiers more time to focus on the more important aspects of their job and will help them focus more on training, as well as carrying less kit from place to place. “The Armed Forces still clean with oil and
