Robotic Washing and Deburring


The new M-710iC/70 FoundryPRO robot, along with an LR Mate 200iC robot and an R-2000iB FoundryPRO robot equipped with iRVision® demonstrate intelligent part handling, deburring and washing. The R-2000iB uses iRVision 3D robot guidance to pick a random part from a cart. The R-2000iB robot then transfers it to the LR Mate 200iC and then performs coordinated motion to optimize the deburring. After the R-2000iB transfers the deburred part to a washing booth, the M-710iC/70 performs high-pressure washing. Upon completion, the M-710iC/70 passes the part by an air knife for drying, then exchanges parts with the R-2000iB which puts the completed part on an output cart and the cycle repeats itself.

Key Technology Demonstrated

M-710iC/70 Robot with SE option (Severe Environment option)
  • Built to withstand demanding industrial environments with high reliability
  • Robot can endure the rugged conditions in washing booths such as high humidity and exposure to high pressure water jets
  • The entire robot is rated for IP67
  • The M-710iC is an enclosed robot that has internal routing of all cables and air lines, and has been tested and proven to have reliable operation in washing booths
  • Rated ‘best in class' for speed
  • One of the largest work envelopes in it's class
  • Multiple mounting methods: flood, ceiling, angle and wall
  • Compact size and ability to flip over and work behind itself maximizes flexibility for work cell design, and saves valuable floor space.
  • Ready-to-use robotic vision package
  • Requiring only a camera and cable – no additional processing hardware
  • 2D robot guidance tool to accomplish part location, error proofing, and other operations that normally require special sensors or custom fixtures.
  • For robotic vision processes that exceed the capability of 2D vision systems, we offer an integrated 3D vision system.
LR Mate 200iC Intelligent Robot
  • Offers maximum performance in a light, efficient, accurate and nimble (LEAN) package
  • Meets the automation needs of a variety of industries including electronics, medical devices, food, metals, plastics, and packaged and consumer goods.  
  • Its compact design and flexibility to quickly adapt to small lot sizes, new styles and other modifications provides manufacturers an affordable solution for small part, flexible production.   
  • The six-axis, LR Mate 200iC robot rates ‘best in class' for its wrist load capacity, repeatability, work envelope, and speed
  • Multiple mounting options:  floor, tabletop, inside machines, angle and invert, which maximizes flexibility for small and narrow workspaces.
R-2000iB FoundryPRO Robot

  • The R-2000iB FoundryPRO robot represents a family of industrial robots, including pedestal and rack mount versions with a variety of payloads and reaches.  
  • A slim arm and wrist assembly helps minimize interference with system equipment and allows the robot to operate in small workspaces.
  • The FoundryPRO option makes the entire robot IP67 protected for operation in harsh environments.
