Dürr Ecoclean supplied its 100th EcoCFlex to a South German automotive manufacturerFilderstadt, )
The first EcoCFlex machine for cleaning and deburring engine components went into service at the BMW Group in 2005. Eleven years later, when the company was celebrating the 100th anniversary of its foundation, BMW ordered the 100th cleaning machine of this type as part of a major order. Representing the third generation of Dürr Ecoclean's flexible robotized cells, this anniversary specimen was launched in production at the Steyr (Austria) engine plant in early May 2017 along with two other EcoCFlex 3L systems. These cleaning machines are adapted to BMW's latest specifications for technical cleanliness, replacing the transfer systems previously employed on a production line for petrol engines.
Along with the special painting specified to suit the occasion, the BMW Group opted to order the new EcoCFlex 3L systems with handling technology comprising the Scara manipulator developed by Dürr Ecoclean. This rugged robot was purpose-designed for use in cleaning machines and convinces, among other features, with its innovative control approach. Instead of the separate robot control unit commonly adopted, the EcoCFlex 3L relies on just one single CNC controller to operate both the Scara manipulator and the cleaning machine. This simplifies and accelerates programming, service and maintenance of the overall installation. However, the EcoCFlex 3L sets new standards not only for cleaning quality and ease of operation, but also in terms of energy efficiency.
