Robot Laser Cleaning Machine
The Robot Cleaning Machine is our most flexible laser cleaning solution. It allows you to benefit from the high-speed of the LXQ-HP laser system and the flexibility of a multiple-axis robot arm. This fully automated solution can process any part geometry as well as complex surfaces with several cleaning and texturing zones. It is designed to run 24/7 while maintaining very low operation costs.
Fume extraction and filtration are integrated with a suction nozzle attached to the robot gripper. It efficiently captures fumes and dust particles generated by the process, hence maintaining the quality and repeatability of laser surface treatments.
Benefits of the Robot Cleaning Machine
Process Complex 3D Parts
The robot cleaning machine is ideal to process complex 3D parts such as engine blocks, transmission cases and wheels. By combining a robot arm with our unique autofocusing capabilities, the positioning of the laser head is greatly simplified, allowing you to apply precise cleaning and texturing patterns.
High Versatility With
The robot cleaning machine is perfectly suited to clean multiple parts within the same robot cell. It is a highly versatile and future-proof solution that allows you to easily add part variants as you start new programs over the years.
Customized for Your Application
The robot cleaning machine is an advanced production tool that can be adapted to your most complex projects. The robot’s reach and number of axes can be adapted to your specifications. Quality control of the treated surfaces can be performed inline with our vision camera and automatic 3D focus adjustments.
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 robot cleaning machine is built to offer you peace of mind for 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
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.
Our on-the-fly autofocusing system automatically adjusts the laser configuration while the robot moves the laser head. In doing so, it compensates for positioning imprecisions, resulting in an unmatched cleaning and texturing quality.
X-Y Vision System
If part positioning variations are important, a vision camera can be integrated in the machine nozzle to compensate for X and Y positioning errors.
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.
