Robot Laser Cleaning Machine
The Robot Cleaning Machine combines the precision of laser technology with the dexterity of robotics. It can be used to clean, texture, and even mark surfaces.
With its long reach and multi-axis movement, the robot arm moves the laser head and adjusts the angle as needed for the application. This makes it the ideal solution to process:
- Complex shapes
- Multiple surfaces
- Large parts
- Multiple parts
Benefits of the Robot Cleaning Machine
Protect Part Integrity with Efficient Fume Extraction
An extraction nozzle is installed on the robot arm to capture dust and fumes at the source. This is essential to prevent recontaminating surfaces or damaging connections and electronic components.
Proper extraction also improves the quality and repeatability of the laser process by making sure the laser beam is not partially blocked by dust or diffracted by fumes. Extraction is optimized for your application and continuously monitored to detect any issues.
Customize the Robotic Cell to Your Production Reality
As a flexible solution, the machine dimensions and equipment location can be adjusted to fit the reality of your production floor. Various part loading options are available to match your part dimension and complexity.
The robot and laser can also be programmed for multiple operations, making it possible to switch from one production model to another.
Control the Laser Process in Production with a 6-Axis Robot
With the laser head mounted on a 6-axis robotic arm, the laser has the perfect angle every time, making it easy to process complex shapes.
When the laser beam overshoots beyond the edge of a part, it can damage sensitive components if it has the wrong angle. Advanced control over the laser angle protects sensitive components from the laser beam and its reflections.

Laser Machine Options
Part Loading Configuration
The machine configuration can be fully adjusted to your part’s size and your preferred loading configuration.
If you want to work with a specific robotic arm, we can adapt the robotic cell to your requirements. The cell can work with robots from major robot supplies such as ABB, FANUC, KUKA, or others.
The machine can be customized to fit your production floor. We will work with you to optimize the robot cell’s footprint for your actual production environment, moving its components as needed. For example, the electrical cabinet and control panel can be remotely located to minimize the footprint as well as facilitate operations and maintenance.
The machine offers a wide range of laser power configurations. A higher power increases the surface treatment speed, allowing you to meet more challenging cycle times.
- Single-mode fiber lasers are available between 20W and 500W. With their smaller spot size, they are ideal for the precise cleaning and texturing of surfaces.
- Multimode fiber lasers are available between 1kW and 3kW. With their larger spot size, they are ideal to clean large areas more effectively.
HMI Control Panel
The standard HMI control panel provides easy access to laser and robot cell parameters:
- Specify a part model to automatically load the corresponding robotic sequence
- Set laser parameters
- Access the manual operation mode to run validation tests or calibrate the laser
- Display information such as the system status and the operation mode
- Access other custom features based on your needs
