Voith Industrial Services Attends Magna Site in Obertshausen, Germany


Procedures like dry-ice cleaning require comprehensive professional skills; Paint shop cleaning and janitorial cleaning involving approx. 50 employees; New three-year contract

Voith Industrial Services performs paint shop cleaning activities at the Magna plant in Obertshausen (Germany) for the next three years.

“We are very pleased about the contract with which we will contribute to retaining the value of the plant. We will ensure the availability of our customer‘s plant and equipment”, says Fuat Kaya, Technical Supervisor at Voith Industrial Services in Ruesselsheim.

The contract involves, among other things, the cleaning of the fan guards and cooling fins, the supply, exhaust and air recirculation duct, the after-filter, the fan, the dryer, the fan room, the spray booth, the paint shop scrubber room as well as the strip out buffer housing. Furthermore, Voith Industrial Services provides janitorial cleaning services in the administrative areas and the canteen including window and frame cleaning as well as grounds maintenance and plant care and winter services.

On weekdays, small teams of the industrial services provider are present on-site and 40 of its employees are present on-site on weekends. The services offered go beyond technical cleaning: the team provides filter management and checks whether parts have been damaged during the production process or are already corroding and will have to be replaced soon. Potential faults are then photographed, for example, and directly reported to the customer. 
With modern procedures like dry-ice cleaning, the industrial services provider removes dirt from different kinds of surfaces quickly, gently and in an environmentally friendly way using diverse methods. The robots are dry-ice blasted at least twice a year – and, if required, also the surrounding areas such as the factory ceilings. With this method, the time and money needed for waste disposal is reduced, chemical additives are not required and plant downtime can be shortened.
