Door Laser Cleaning Machine
The Door Cleaning Machine is a simple solution suitable for several industrial cleaning applications. With its compact footprint and U-shaped door, it can easily be integrated in existing robotic cells. This Class-1 high-power machine can perform several surface treatments, such as cleaning and texturing, and offers up to 500W of laser power.
Several options are available, such as automatic focus compensation, part rotation, or laser head linear movements on a gantry system. The machine also incorporates an efficient filtration system to manage fumes and dust generated by the laser process.
Benefits of the Door Cleaning Machine
Use Your Current Robot
The Door Cleaning Machine is the best compromise between cost and efficiency. Once the robot has dropped the part in the fixture, it is free to perform other operations while the laser is processing the part.
Customized for Your Application
The machine can be scaled to your part size. You can also clean multiple areas by flipping parts with the optional rotary axis. If the surface to process is larger than the laser’s scanning field, you can add a gantry system to move the laser head as needed. And we also offer embedded quality control.
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.
Flexible Part Loading
To offer maximum flexibility, the machine comes with multiple part loading configurations. The robot can present parts from the front, left and right sides as well as from the top, granting you many options when optimizing your plant layout.
Designed for the Harshest Environments
The robot 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.
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
Our dynamic, on-the-fly autofocusing system automatically adjusts the laser configuration while the laser head is moved on a gantry system or while the part is moved by a rotary indexer. In doing so, it compensates for positioning imprecisions, resulting in an unmatched cleaning and texturing quality.
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.
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.
We also offer two types of laser heads. 2D heads are typically used for surface treatments on flat surfaces. 3D heads can be used to treat any types of surface geometries, including curved ones, or to treat surfaces at different heights without moving the head.
Our team can build custom fixtures to fix your parts into position.
Leave no room for operation mistakes that lead to poor surface treatment performance. Our fixture validation system can automatically read the fixture’s barcode and load its corresponding parameters. As a result, the right laser configuration and automation sequence are started every time.
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.
Located outside the machine, the automatic drawer makes part loading easier for robots or operators by automatically moving parts inside the machine. With simplified machine access, you also gain in flexibility when optimizing your plant layout.
If you need to clean or texture a part at different angles (such as when cleaning a part’s circumference), a rotary indexer can be used to fix the part and automatically rotate it.
