Analysis & Consulting

Each cleaning or blasting problem is different and requires an individual approach. That's why our R&D Department examines your specific cleaning situation and evaluates the components which have to be treated.

Together with you we will then check if a Laborex standard cleaning machine or custom made cleaning machine should be developed by our Engineering Department.

We doesn't run from a challenge

We work all this out for you!

Use of proper chemistry

Nor should the importance of the right chemistry be underestimated. We have the most environmentally friendly cleaning products in our range and we are also a strong advocate of installing a skimmer, grease separator or oil separator to your cleaning system. These separators not only skim the oils and greases on the surface water in your bath, they also give your cleaning machine a longer life.

By combining the right solvent in your cleaning system and an appropriate skimmer, oil separator or grease separator, we offer you a total solution and the full cleaning process remains our responsibility.

How we start a project

  • A project normally starts with a visit from one of our sales staff whether or not accompanied by a project engineer.
  • In many cases, we first start with a series of tests carried out on the parts which have to be cleaned. We have a suitable demo testing room for this. In this room there are different types of cleaning machines, cleaning machines which are often equipped with special high pressure pumps and with a frequency controller.
  • On the basis of these tests it can be determined which cleaning principle can best be applied to your process (for example spray pressure cleaning, flood wash, immersion, ultrasonic, blasting, high pressure cleaning, etc. or combinations of different techniques) and with which flows and pressures we can work best.
  • There is often a lot of creativity involved. Special spray packages, special holders, etc. are made ​​to ensure results.
  • Once we have determined which cleaning principle and which chemistry can be applied best to your process, we examine in which machine concept this can be best implemented.
  • Does a standard machine suffice or should we create an installation custom-made?
  • Can we work with a tunnel washer, carousel washer, screw of Archimedes-washer, immersion system, rotating spray pressure cleaning system, etc.?

Mechanical Engineering

After we have together determined which machine concept is best suited for your production line, our Mechanical Engineering department makes a first 3D model of the cleaning system or blasting cabinet using appropriate CAD-CAM programs. This model is extensively discussed with you and further tailored to your needs.

Sheet metal work

By making a representation of the final 3D model, we obtain a 2D drawing that allows us to produce the necessary sheet metal work. For this we have a modern machine department with laser cutting machines, bending machines, a geared machine with drum, a turning machine, a tapping machine, a dust exhausting installation, etc.

Then our Welding Department will start the mechanical construction of the machine. Highly trained staff, high-tech welding equipment and a 100 % horizontal welding floor guarantee a perfect construction.

Electrical Engineering

In the meantime our Electrical Engineering department examines the full electrical and automation process. The electric diagrams and cabinet lay-out are drawn and designed. The PLC programs are written and tested.

After we have determined the complete engineering process, all materials are ordered and production can be started.


If after testing the cleaning machine or blasting cabinet runs satisfactorily on the welding floor, they will be dissembles and then lacquered.

Final assembly takes place at our Assembly Department. The cleaning system or blasting cabinet are again tested so you can then collect the machine.


Each Laborex washer or blasting cabinet is supplied with a detailed and clear manual.
