Robot Cleans Up

14 March 2013

A new Kawasaki RS80N robot is carrying out clean-up operations in an aggressive environment for Aircrete Building Blocks manufacturer, H+H UK.


The operation requires the robot to remove all ‘slurry’ residue from a mould, 6m long by 1.2m wide by 700mm deep. The process also requires the spraying of oil to the sides of the mould as a release agent and to help convert residue to a mixable consistency.

Installed within a fully enclosed spray booth, the Kawasaki RS80N robot is mounted on an 8m linear axis which follows the length of the mould. The robot has a selection of two different powered brushes, one for the base and one for the sides of the mould, which it automatically changes during the process. A spray head mounted to the robot arm allows oil to be sprayed to the sides and base of the mould during the process.
