Both increased efficiency and the protection of workers from hazardous cleaning chemicals are advantages of robot application for parts washing and cleaning. The robot may either serve to transfer a part into a position for service by fixed wash, and/or dry systems (most applicable for small parts), or may manipulate the wash and/or dry system around a stationary part (most applicable for larger parts). The following sections describe three robot cleaning applications.
