The robot’s high flexibility allows cleaning of different part geometries in the same cell with zero changeover time, which supports mass customization, while it provides increased speed and, on average, 5 percent faster cycle time. Its design is focused on reliability and system uptime in conjunction with optimized maintenance to enable easier serviceability, which can reduce maintenance costs by up to 60 percent and energy consumption by up to 15 percent. The unit can work in an environment that is normally not suitable for industrial robots, with enhanced protection from heat, cleaning pressure, chemicals and dirt typically found in harsh and wet environments. It also has IP69-rated protection to prevent water and dust ingress where the cleaning chemicals can range up to pH 10.
