our Sales Team

Automated washing solutions have increased production and improved product quality while reducing operating costs. Stäubli HE industrial washing robots are specially sealed, meaning they can handle the water jet and the workpiece. They are also waterproof and can withstand a range of chemical solutions, in both acidic and alkaline environments. They are perfect for low- and high-pressure cleaning, very high-pressure deburring, degreasing, rinsing, and drying applications.

Benefits of robot washing

  • Maintaining product quality and production rates, optimization of process depending on the product to be washed/cleaned/deburred.
  • Flexibility of robot positioning allows the adoption of virtually limitless cleaning positions.
  • Higher levels of waste removal reduce the risk of part failure or quality rejection.
  • Cost reduction (reduced use of water, electricity, air and cleaning chemicals).
  • Eliminates the need for human operators to be in the harsh environment
