Programming and control for cleaning process

With two complete cleaning lines for an automobile plant in the Chinese Shenyang we were responsible for the electrical planning and control cabinet construction and supported with the installation and start-up of the control technology, both in Germany and on site in China.

Three robot cells deburr motor parts with a water pressure of up to 600 bar, as much as 500 motor parts per day. They are cleaned off residues from the mechanical processing with various cleaning agents as well as preserved at the same time. Afterwards, the treated parts are returned to manufacturing or transported to an interim storage.

A special challenge was the variety and complexity of the plant processes which had to be considered when programming the control unit. Furthermore, due to the specification sheets of the car manufacturer, detailed requirements for control technology and programming had to be taken into account.
