FAQ

We have set our focus on the development, planning and production of cleaning systems. In the process, we take a close look at each of our customers’ tasks in order to find a suitable solution. Solubility of dirt, part geometry, cleanliness requirements, output rate are exactly matched to the customer application. In addition to plant engineering and construction, we offer the appropriate cleaning chemicals and contract cleaning.

We currently employ 46 people.

We are active in the field of industrial parts cleaning.
Since our foundation in 1995, we have been intensively involved in the cleaning of parts with various geometries made of almost any material. The size of the components is not decisive. Whether it’s the ultra-fine cleaning of precision parts or degreasing in a mesh box, we will find the ideal process.

Already in 2009 we started to give young people the opportunity to do an apprenticeship at vapic. At that time we only trained mechatronics engineers, in the meantime the professions technical product designer and construction mechanic have been added. Currently we employ 6 trainees.

The difference between the two methods is that in spray cleaning, the cleaning medium is sprayed with pressure from different nozzles. In immersion cleaning, on the other hand, the component is completely covered in a so-called working chamber. Depending on the project and, for example, geometry and cleanliness requirements, the appropriate process is determined.

For solvents, whether hydrocarbon, modified alcohol or perchloroethylene, we offer all techniques. Conceivable are both spray cleaning and immersion cleaning systems. Furthermore, we have often implemented combined systems with a full aqueous cleaning.
We have developed different process steps to meet particularly high cleanliness requirements with a low energy input.
In addition to solvents, we also offer you the other substances required, such as stabilisers to maintain the pH value.

Probably the biggest advantage of our Modular in-line plant is that a very short cycle time
is possible for parts with a high level of technical cleanliness. Due to the modular design, the machine can be easily extended at any time, so that if the task is changed
in future, it will not be necessary to make a completely new investment for a car wash.
Numerous customers are already using this type of system and the response is very good.

If you decide in favour of us as your plant and chemical supplier, we offer you the so-called process guarantee. We ensure that your components achieve the desired cleanliness and support you in bath care and plant maintenance. Your great advantage is that you have only one contact person and in case of problems the other party is not blamed.
We see ourselves as “caretakers” and support you as quickly as possible to ensure that your process runs smoothly.
Due to our understanding in both areas we can help you effectively.

We have been carrying out residual dirt analyses in clean rooms for over 10 years. Already in 2011, our head of cleanliness analyses Daniela Wolf completed her examination to become “Examiner for Technical Cleanliness” at the Fraunhofer Institute in Stuttgart. She gained knowledge about the basics of the extration and analysis methods, cleanliness-compatible behaviour and much more. She carries out cleanliness analyses in accordance with VDA Volume 19 both as a service and in the parts cleaning centre. We offer you particle analyses at fair prices with detailed documentation including photos. Due to our many years of experience, we can support you if you do not have any specifications for carrying out the analysis.

We are characterised by many unique market features.
These certainly include the combination of plant engineering, parts cleaning centre and cleaning agents.
Another unique selling point is our cleaning process – we have developed various processes to clean parts in an ideal way – e.g. our pressure change process with which blind holes and narrow gaps can be effectively cleaned. Thanks to our energy-saving technology, you can receive subsidies when purchasing a system and save enormously on operating costs – up to 60% compared to systems from our competitors. Due to the high degree of automation that we can implement, you also save on personnel costs and make your production more effective.
We also attach great importance to a good relationship with our customers and suppliers.

Vapic has a location in 75387 Neubulach in the Black Forest.
Our construction department, the administration, the plant construction, the parts cleaning centre is located here,
the development and production of the cleaning agents and our laboratory.
We also have a subsidiary, vapic Hungary Kft., which is located in 6116 Fülöpjakab in Hungary. This company produces components of the highest quality for our main factory.
In the future a cleaning service for our customers in Hungary will be established.

The technical cleanliness of parts is getting steadily more important.
This has the background that a clean surface or parts without particles are relevant for many systems. Often the subsequent processes such as assembly, heat treatment or joining processes require clean surfaces. Without the required cleanliness, a quality assured function cannot be guaranteed. Even the smallest particles can cause great damage in the field of safety engineering.

We are pleased to receive your unsolicited applications and check your possibilities at vapic. Please send your complete application documents (cover letter, CV, certificates etc.) in pdf-format directly to Mr. Christian Bischoff,

Aqueous cleaners are well suited to dissolve oils, fats and emulsions as well as salts, particles and other soiling. Due to our 2-component system, builders and surfactants can be dosed separately as required. As water is not flammable, there is no fire load.
We are pleased to evaluate which cleaner is best suited for your soiling in our standardized solubility test.

It is called degreasing when lubricants are to be removed from the surface. The technical drawings refer to the requirement “grease-free”. As grease-free is not clearly defined, we recommend that the requirements are always specified with a surface tension. However, these are not components in which particles play a decisive role. In our parts cleaning centre we have the possibility to degrease our customers’ parts in lattice boxes fully automatically at very good prices.

We offer all processes in the field of liquid chemical cleaning.
From simple ultrasonic baths, spraying systems to vacuum systems with fully automatic loading by means of shuttle vehicles, we offer you the appropriate solution. We are also experienced in the chemical industry with solvents such as PER, hydrocarbon or modified alcohols as well as aqueous cleaners.
Due to our unique cleaning processes and our energy-saving technology, we offer you process-safe cleaning at the best possible price.

Pre-Wash means pre-cleaning. Under our “Pre-Wash” option, we pre-clean a large amount of dirt without contaminating the tank. Due to a separate circuit with filter, pump and piping, there is less mixing in the cleaning tanks. A permanently higher quality of the cleaning tanks ensures effective cleaning.

Besides our homepage you can also find us at Instagram and LinkedIn under the profile vapicgmbh. Here you will find news about our company and insights into exciting projects.

On our homepage you can download our brochure at any time in the download area. Here you can find our range of services and get an idea of our company. You can obtain more specific flyers from your contact person. We would also be pleased to inform and advise you by e-mail or telephone.

Cleaning with solvents is recommended if your components have oily soiling. The solvent is itself like a thin oil, in which the machining oils dissolve optimally and thus a very good degreasing
result is achieved. Through an integrated distillative treatment we obtain a constantly clean tank.
