Quality requirements within industrial production increase no matter what industry sector you are in: the automobile industry, the furniture industry, the electronic industry or glass manufacturers. As production processes become more complex, surface cleanliness gets more and more important in order to produce high-quality products. The company Wandres GmbH micro-cleaning has its headquarters in Buchenbach-Wagensteig in Southern Germany. It has become a specialist in cleaning industrial surfaces for many industry sectors by using both brushing and compressed air-assisted cleaning systems.

For the past few years, the furniture industry has been moving towards high end, high gloss surfaces. Black and white surfaces predominate, but intensive colours have found their way into kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and modern offices, too. Lively colours slowly replace the dreary grey furnishings. Especially kitchens have changed a lot. For decades they merely served to cook. Today, cooking and eating areas merge to form a world of well-being. Cooking together and fine food in a nice setting are part of a new style of living.

Synthetic filaments replace feathers

German car manufacturer Audi changed its cleaning equipment in one of its 4 painting lines in their Ingolstadt plant. They have replaced the cleaning process with Emu feathers and installed six-axis robots with Sword Brushes. The results are very convincing. In the future, all painting lines will be equipped with Robot Sword Brushes.
