FlexWashers

Cleaning, Washing & Deburring

W60 FlexWasherTM is unparalleled cleanliness with robotic precision. FlexWasherTM technology combines the durability of a single ABB Foundry Prime2 robot and the industry proven part cleaning methods integrated into a complete system.

ABB Deburr/Wash Process
The FlexWasherTM technology is based on a common platform capable of handling unique part types with varying sizes and complexity in geometry, which are processed using precise movements to achieve the optimal level of cleanliness via a workpieces specific program.
Workpieces are deposited into the pre–rinse chamber where they are processed with low pressure flood type washing. The Foundry Prime2 robot then removes the part from the pre–rinse chamber via an opening provided by a vertical door. While the robot process the part, another part is place in the pre–rinse chamber and is flood washed. When the robot completes the process the dry chamber door opens and the part is place in the dry chamber. The robot then returns to the pre–rinse chamber to retrieve another pre–washed part. This allows parts to be processed in each stage to help reduce cycle time. The FlexWasherTM is capable of replacing traditional single–path equipment with historically lower reliability. It’s flexibility offers a greater potential to retool and or reuse for futures programs, with increased investment efficiency.
