Camshaft Conveyor Washer

Background

This company is a leading American manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks and powertrain systems. As such, camshafts are an essential component they manufacture. In light of this, they needed an automated camshaft cleaning system to clean the parts after the machining process.

Cleaning Challenge

The parts cleaning system also needed to integrate with their existing robotic work cell.

Solution

In this case, the solution was a Cyberjet C-14 fully automated parts washing system that cleans diesel engine camshafts. First, a single robot loads and unloads the camshafts on one end of the system. Once the robot loads a camshaft onto a fixture, the fixture is released. Then, the part travels around the tight radius, closed-loop conveyor.

The parts stop at various queuing stations and then travel through a wash zone, a dry zone, and an oil misting zone. Notably, the machine does not mist all parts. The system knows which parts do and don’t get coated with oil. Furthermore, the power drying module has a 5HP centrifugal blower and an 18kW air heater.

In addition, features of the camshaft cleaning system include:

  • Stainless steel construction.
  • Five automatic stops.
  • A heated wash tank.
  • High-velocity air knives for drying (air is heated).
  • Inline micron filtration.
  • A marine cleanout door.
  • A mist collection system for the oil misting section.
