ISCRUBBER™ STATS AND FACTS
The iSCRUBBER™ is an automated resist (mask) removing machine that Texas Nameplate Company designed and built over a four year period. Completely owned by Texas Nameplate Company, the iSCRUBBER™ has received interest from across the globe. The iSCRUBBER™ is unique to TNC and other nameplate companies by reducing VOC emissions, decreasing labor hours, eliminating soiled rags consumption, and diminishing exposure to hazardous chemicals. Competitors are using a manual process for stripping which could expose employees to harmful solvent base chemicals. For years Texas Nameplate Company and our competitors have struggled with the costly and potentially hazardous effects of manually processing sheets and this invention drastically transforms this step of the process. It is currently estimated that within three years, an investment in the iSCRUBBER™ will pay for itself in savings! Not only does the iSCRUBBER™ improve the time and cost of processing sheets but it reduces our carbon footprint on the environment. This machine meets or exceeds state and city environmental requirements. We are working with environmental quality professionals to certify the environmental benefits of using the iSCRUBBER™ versus traditional methods.
ADDITIONAL ISCRUBBER™ FACTS
- Dries all sheets, eliminating all rag usage
- Operates by just one person
- Is a closed system that reduces solvent usage by 75 percent and VOCs by more than 80 percent
- Completes a minimum of 1.5 to 2 sheets per minute or 100-120 sheets per hour with one person compared to our competitors’ traditional methods of 30 sheets per hour with three people
- Decreases the carbon footprint on the environment
Recently TNC has radically re-invented the nameplate manufacturing process by designing and building a state of the art manufacturing facility. We have gone the extra mile for both indoor and outdoor air quality at the new facility by installing state of the art air-scrubber systems in their chemical etching area, and by drastically reducing VOC emissions by using waterborne paint, and by the invention of iSCRUBBER™ technology. The iSCRUBBER™ is an enclosed, fully automated solvent scrubbing system designed for cleaning paint and resist from chemically etched nameplates. It produces less than 0.25 tons per year of VOC emissions at full capacity, and replaces a manual scrubbing process which used to emit around 10 tons per year of VOC emissions with much less capacity. Use of the iSCRUBBER™ also has eliminated the soiled rag waste stream.
