Decontaminating automotive parts is just a small part of the production process. A perfect clean tooling results in better quality in paintshops. Although decontaminating these parts, is often a significant cost and essential for a flawless production process, a well thought-out approach can bring along substantial decreases. Thermo-Clean Group already puts this into practice for several big automobile manufacturers, by a special program called the “Total Care Automotive”.
Within this program, we consider the complete paint process of our client. Together we determine the right cleaning technique for your parts, so additional costs for repairs can be avoided. A wrong decontamination method can cause your precious tooling to be damaged during the decontamination proces by chemical degradation or by too high temperatures.
Besides the perfect cleaning of your parts, we want to ensure that the contaminated parts are perfectly usable again. This means, after a decontamination treatment, we can do additional treatments like handling, local masking, cleaning, repairing and straightening for a perfectly deployable tooling, which automatically leads to a more efficient production process and therefore to a better First-Run-OK. As a result, you drastically lower the repair costs and downtime costs, which will immediately result in a much better performance of your paint shop.
The "Total Care Concept" consists of a complete package of services, which ensures that our client can leave the complete process to us. This way, there is only one contact partner for the full flow, which will bring the efficiency to the highest possible level. All unnecessary cases are avoided from the production process in order to function as optimally as possible.
