This company is a leading American manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks and powertrain systems. They needed an automated camshaft cleaning system to clean the parts after the machining process.
The parts cleaning system needed to integrate with their existing robotic work cell.
The solution was a Cyberjet C-14 fully automated parts washing system that cleans diesel engine camshafts. A single robot loads and unloads the camshafts on one end of the system. Once a camshaft is loaded onto a fixture, the fixture is released and 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 then an oil misting zone (not all parts are misted. The system knows which parts do and don’t get coated with oil.) The power drying module has a 5HP centrifugal blower and an 18kW air heater.
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, and a mist collection system for the oil misting section.
