Evolution in the cleaning of powertrain components

What strikes the observer first about the new EcoCFlex 3 is Dürr Ecoclean’s proprietary scara manipulator replacing the standard 6-axis jointed-arm robot, as well as the machine’s exceptional design. A view under the hood reveals further details contributing to its superior process reliability, quality, energy efficiency and availability rates in pre-cleaning and final cleaning of powertrain components.

On the new EcoCFlex 3, one CNC controller for the machine and the integrated scara manipulator replaces the previously required PLC and robot control unit.

In the pre- and final cleaning of powertrain parts such as cylinder heads, engine blocks and crankcases, robot cells not just improve flexibility. They also allow parts to be cleaned in short cycles, which makes them an indispensable asset in advanced engine and transmission manufacturing lines. With over 400 robot systems built, Dürr Ecoclean of Monschau possesses plenty of experience and has gained extensive customer feedback on optimization potentials. Both went into the development of the new EcoCFlex 3 which is available in two sizes as a 3M and 3L version.
