Jackson, MI (Vocus) July 8, 2009
Midbrook, a Jackson, MI based manufacturer of industrial parts washing systems, medical decontamination systems, and water bottling systems has seen an influx of orders for rebuilt and used equipment. Midbrook is capable of refurbishing and modifying almost any piece of industrial, medical, or water bottling cleaning equipment.
As the economic climate begins to improve, manufacturers find themselves hustling to get new programs up and running. These companies cannot afford to wait through the lead time of a brand new piece of industrial cleaning equipment, and sometimes are not in the financial position to purchase brand new. Midbrook recognizes these constraints and works with companies to find them used, or rebuilt, industrial washers that can handle the necessary application.
Rebuilding a washer can be done much quicker than building a new part washer, and for less cost. If the industrial parts washer is shipped to the Midbrook facility, it can be upgraded and returned to the customer in a very reasonable amount of time.
“A brand new industrial parts washer is built from the ground up to meet your application, but that takes longer and can cost more,” said Business Development Director James Crowley. “A rebuild, of your own or one of our used units, can be completed in a shorter time frame.”
Midbrook can rebuild a parts washer that a company already owns, no matter who the original manufacturer is, or they can help you select from the used industrial part washers already on the Midbrook floor.
“We are always looking to bring in quality used industrial parts washers,” said Crowley. “After purchase, we evaluate them with our crews and set up a plan for rebuilding. When we find an appropriate customer, we can quickly make the necessary changes to the washer that the customer will require for their application.”
Rebuilding an existing parts washer is appropriate in a number of circumstances. Midbrook worked with an automotive supplier that had recently received an order for a new part. The company was to begin production on the new part as quickly as possible. The new was similar in size and weight to their previous part; however, it had a different configuration.
“Budget and time were a concern for the supplier,” said Crowley. “We decided to rebuild the part washer they used for the original design – we replaced the fixtures on the machine, the spray manifold configuration, and the blow-off stage, and everything else was unchanged.”
As an added benefit, the customer was able to stay significantly under-budget by rebuilding the old part washer. They were able to spend the extra money on various upgrades to the part washer that significantly increased the efficiency and performance of the unit.
“Rebuilds of industrial parts washers are a highly efficient way to increase productivity without breaking your budget,” says Crowley. “We expect to see many more part washer rebuilds come through our facility in the coming months.”
