Rotary Laser Cleaning Workstation
The Rotary Workstation is the most efficient of all manually loaded laser cleaning machines on the market. It is the go-to machine when only a short cycle time is available for laser treatments. It achieves a high production throughput by using a dual-position indexer, which allows to simultaneously clean and load parts.
With up to 500W of laser power, this Class 1 machine can perform several types of surface treatments, including laser cleaning and laser texturing. It also incorporates a highly efficient filtration system that manages the fumes and dust generated by surface treatments.
Benefits of the Rotary Table Cleaning Workstation
Maximize Your Throughput
The rotary workstation is the ideal solution for manual operations with high throughput requirements. The robust steel rotary table allows the operator to load and unload parts without impacting the laser process occurring simultaneously in the enclosure.
Customized to Your Needs
The workstation is suited for the most complex projects. It is fully scalable to fit various part sizes. If you need to treat multiple areas on a part, the rotary part holder and gantry system options can be added. Other features also include automated quality control and automatic 3D focus.
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 rotary workstation 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.
Quick Changeover Time
Switch rapidly from one part model to another by simply changing fixtures. Daily operations are made easy with the intuitive touchscreen HMI.
Compatible with any Cleaning Location
You can clean parts regardless of their orientation as cleaning can be performed from the top or sides of the workstation.
Class-1 Laser Safety Enclosure
Operators don’t need to wear any personal protective equipment when they work near the workstation. With its Class-1 laser enclosure, it complies with international laser safety standards. Operators can even see the cleaning operation through the viewing window without wearing safety goggles.
Laser Workstation Options
The workstation is powered by a fiber laser whose power can range from 20W to 500W. A higher power increases the surface treatment speed and reduces your operator’s waiting time.
We also offer two types of laser heads. 2D heads are typically used for surface treatments on flat surfaces while 3D heads can be used to treat any types of surface geometries, including curved ones.
Dust & Fume Extraction
Choosing the right power for your dust and fume extraction unit is extremely important to ensure the safety of its operators and the constant quality of the laser process. For this reason, we offer different models so you can select the right one for your fume extraction requirements.
Air knives installed on the lens prevent dust from accumulating on it by blowing a continuous airstream. Not only does this reduce lens cleaning maintenance, but it also helps you obtain more consistent results by keeping the laser beam unobstructed.
The laser head can be mounted on a gantry system to clean or texture a larger area and to process multiple areas on a part, and this, within the same sequence.
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.
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.
Our team can build custom fixtures to fix your parts into position onto the rotary table.
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.
