The focus on cleanliness has never been stronger. At work or in your home, keeping things clean and germ-free is essential to good health and prosperity. This is especially true in manufacturing facilities. Workers in assembly lines or industrial workstations are constantly handling small parts and various tooling in dusty environments. CNC machines, in particular, tend to get dirty very quickly.  To keep your machine clean and sanitary for today’s world, use an industrial cleaner on the following surfaces:

1. Smart Console (operator pendants)
