Molds / Tooling


Ultrasonic mold cleaners are the most effective way to improve the performance of your tool room.
Ultrasonic mold cleaning removes contamination from mold surfaces as well as intricacies such as vent paths, ejector pin holes, cooling channels and other tiny areas that manual cleaning can’t reach.  The ultrasonic mold cleaning process is non abrasive, eliminating rolled edges .  Ultrasonic mold cleaning is hands free, eliminating the manual labor involved with hand cleaning.  Plus, our Blue Wave mold cleaning systems are environmentally friendly because we provide you with specially formulated water-based detergents that are less expensive and less hazardous than spray solvents.  Our customers no longer have to store, work with, or dispose of toxic cleaning agents.

Blue Wave Advantages for the Mold/Tooling industry.
Knowledge – Beginning in the 1950s, we’ve made ultrasonic cleaning systems and detergents that succeed in every environment.  Our experience is the key to providing you the best cleaning solution.  We have the advantage of making the longest lasting and most effective ultrasonic tanks in the world, but our expertise and passion is delivering systems that are the best possible solution for your business.
Durability – Blue Wave ultrasonic cleaning systems are designed to perform at the highest level in the most demanding industrial cleaning environments around the world.  We know our systems are expected to operate for longer hours at higher temperatures, while cleaning to the highest standards, and we still offer the very best warranty in the ultrasonic cleaning industry (and its not even close).   How?  We utilize the highest quality materials and the most proven techniques while administering the most stringent quality testing.
Flexibility – Our ability to adapt to your specific cleaning needs is unparalleled.  If one of our standard systems won’t completely fit your needs, we work with you to engineer a custom design that will be the very best option to maximize your cleaning efficiency.  From the tank size to detergent formulation to automation, the experts at Blue Wave will create a dependable cleaning solution that stays within your budget and delivers exceptional results.
Service – Our systems are designed, manufactured and tested at our company headquarters located in Davenport, Iowa USA.  The same experts who who helped design your system are the people who service your system after the sale.  We know the efficiency of your production process can depend on our ability to respond to your inquiries.  Your success is our priority.
Return on Investment– Ultrasonic cleaning in general provides a favorable return on investment when compared to your existing conventional cleaning methods.  The least expensive ultrasonic equipment will typically make more financial sense than paying for the labor needed to hand scrub your parts.  However, is price the only thing you should consider?  Blue Wave specializes in making industrial systems that work for decades.  Long after inferior systems deteriorate, a Blue Wave system will still be going strong.   Our quality is a trustworthy investment that keeps paying off, year after year.
