2010-08-06 - New FlexWasher™ technology combines high pressure water deburring and washing into a single robot system that removes burrs and other foreign matter and can significantly reduce warranty costs.
ABB robots are designed with outstanding protection that allows them to work in the extreme washing environment.ABB Robotics has examined the large, inefficient washers being used currently and has committed engineering resources to finding a better way. Existing washers are inline single-path chemical systems that are large, energy gulping, unreliable and wasteful. The result of the ABB Robotics research was a brand new generation of robotic flex washers that have revolutionized high pressure water deburring.
The new ABB FlexWasher achieves significant savings in power draw, fresh water usage, waste processing and consumable chemicals and can reduce annual operating cost by upto 87 percent.
