• Conveyor Cleaning Machine

Conveyor Laser Cleaning Machine  

The Automated Conveyor Machine is an inline laser cleaning machine designed to rapidly remove contaminants from parts as they move on a conveyor (on-the-fly technology) or while a conveyor is stopped. This machine is ideal when you need a highly reliable and precise cleaning process, or when you are looking for an alternative to costly consumables and maintenance. 

Laser surface treatments are repeatable as the embedded autofocusing system tolerates ± 70 mm of part positioning variations. This fully automated laser cleaning and texturing machine is also equipped with a powerful fume extraction system that captures contaminants at the source, thus maintaining the repeatability of the process. 

Benefits of the Conveyor Cleaning Machine

Laser cleaning process

Reliable Laser Cleaning Process  

Parts on conveyors have various geometries and may lack positioning repeatability. Our unique 3D profiling autofocus system automatically adjusts the machine parameters for every single part to ensure a perfect laser cleaning process. 

Cleaning moving parts

360° Treatment

The Conveyor Cleaning Machine can clean all sides of parts that move through it. Depending on the geometry of the part to be laser treated, the machine can be equipped with multiple laser heads to ensure full coverage of the part.  

Customized cleaning solutions

Fully Customized Solution 

The Conveyor Cleaning Machine is fully customized to your specifications. Not only do we scale it to the dimensions of your conveyor, but we can also install a gantry system to move the laser head as needed. With our vision systems, we also offer embedded quality control of the treated surface. 

Embedded fume management

Advanced Fume Management

The embedded fume management system ensures the constant quality of the process and the work environment’s safety. In addition to customized nozzle configurations, the temperature and flow in the extraction unit are continuously monitored to detect any issues, ensuring that the operation is 100% safe for your employees. 

Designed for the Harshest Environments 

The Conveyor Cleaning Machine is built to offer you peace of mind for at least the next 10 years. It can operate 24/7 in the harshest industrial environments. It comes equipped with a temperature-controlled IP-54 electrical cabinet and an Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC.  

Leading-Edge Expertise 

Our team of experts optimize the laser parameters and machine configuration for your application. You get a customized laser process of optimal quality and efficiency based on your cleaning and texturing needs. 

Class-1 Laser Safety Rating 

Safety is never an option. As a turnkey solution, this automated machine complies with international laser safety standards. It helps you create a 100% safe work environment without requiring personal protective equipment.

Laser Machine Options 

Laser Power

The machine is powered by a fiber laser whose power can range from 20W to 500W. A higher power increases the surface treatment speed, allowing you to meet more challenging cycle times. 

Dynamic Autofocus 

Our on-the-fly autofocusing system allows you to clean and texture parts of various shapes and sizes while they are moving on the conveyor, and this, without slowing it down.  

Gantry System 

The laser head can be mounted on a gantry system to move it along three linear axes. This allows you to clean and texture larger surfaces as well as several areas with a single laser head. 

X-Y Vision System 

The vision system locates parts that are beyond the laser’s field of view when part positioning variations are too high on the conveyor. The laser head is then moved to the right location (using a gantry system) to perform the surface treatment. 

HMI Control Panel 

The standard HMI control panel provides direct access to laser parameters near the machine. You can: 

  • Set laser parameters 
  • Enter the manual operation mode to run validation tests or calibrate the laser 
  • Display information such as the system status and the operation mode 

If you want to add custom features in the HMI, contact us

Cleaning Quality Validation 

Multiple cameras positioned at various angles can validate cleaning results after each operation, making sure the surface is sufficiently cleaned based on your requirements.
