The Cleaning Industry

The cleaning machines sector is highly specialised and extremely export-oriented. The European turnover amounts to 1.5 billion Euros, the worldwide turnover to 3.5 billion Euros. State of the art technology, excellent processing and the development of new areas of application, secure the European manufacturers a good position within the scope of international competition.

Cleaning technology comprises a wide variety of machine groups and systems in the field of commercial floor cleaning and high-pressure cleaning. Cleaning systems have a wide range of applications:

  • Cleaning of buildings (floors, ceilings, walls)
  • Cleaning of business premises and productions sites
  • Cleaning of plots of land
  • Cleaning of ships, airplanes and motor vehicles
  • Cleaning of receptacles and apparatus for the manufacturing technology
  • Applications in the area of building restoration and the removal of paint and other coatings 

Within the cleaning technology field, one differentiates between the four varying basic processes: sweeping, vacuuming, scrubbing and high pressure cleaning.
Basic tools used for mechanical cleaning are, rotating brushes and vacuuming airflow (suction). Water plays a very important role in this because on the one hand it serves, operates as a solvent for dirt and on the other hand is used in a sense, like a tool. A combination of several cleaning processes is therefore possible and is essential for economical usage.

The most important floor cleaning machine groups are sweeping machines, vacuum cleaners and sweepers, floor scrubbers, single and multiple disc machines, layer removal machines and spray extraction machines. In the area of high pressure cleaning, high-pressure water jets are used as a cleaning tool. A differentiation is made in this process between high-pressure cleaning (25 - 350 bar) and ultra high-pressure cleaning (more than 350 bar).

In addition to machines manufacturing, the market also expects detailed services. Based on the wide range of possibilities in the usage of cleaning systems, a qualified consultation and customer care is carried out by the manufacturers. Furthermore, our industry offers a broad range of services: maintenance and repair, service and service-hotline, disposal /recycling of machines, used machines-trading, leasing/renting of machines and additional special services such as object consultancy.
