When the going gets wet, the he robots get cleaning!
At HANNOVER MESSE 2016, Stäubli Robotics is demonstrating the benefits of automated parts cleaning using a six-axis TX90L "he".19 Apr 2016
Stäubli’s "he" cleaning robots are designed to withstand extreme conditions. The "he" designates the humid environment versions of Stäubli's six-axis robots for use in wet rooms and other situations involving direct contact with liquids and the risk of splashing. "Renowned manufacturers of parts-cleaning systems started using our he robots for processes such as feeding and handling parts some years back," says Stäubli Robotics General Manager Gerald Vogt. He has also announced a world premiere at HANNOVER MESSE 2016, revealing: "We are adding an entirely new field of application with robots actively performing cleaning tasks using high-powered water jets. Visitors to our stand in Hannover will get to see just how this works."
A real demo cell will be on show containing a six-axis TX90L he that is cleaning components, providing visitors with the chance to witness the efficiency and speed of the process. They will also see just how easy it is to program the robot. The system is so user-friendly that it should only take a couple of minutes to program the cleaning procedure for new components. "This kind of job involving lots of water and splashing is completely no-go for standard robots," Vogt points out - just in case anyone’s tempted to try emulating this groundbreaking cleaning concept with run-of-the-mill robots. "Only our he robots can cope with such demanding conditions. We offer eleven different robots to cater for all kinds of cleaning tasks – from the small TX60 right through to the large TX200 he."
