Four linear brushes, type Twin, wipe crosswise across the surface of the blanks. Made of polyamide, the brush filaments effectively remove any contamination from the surface. A base layer of lubricant remains on the surface of the blank and is evenly distributed, thus providing homogenous lubrication.
Particles and lubricant are separated from the brush filaments mechanically and pneumatically by a self-cleaning unit. The walls of the unit and the suction connections are heated to liquefy hot melt lubricants. The mixture of particles and lubricants is separated from the extraction air in a cyclone separator and deposited in a collecting tank.
Transport and pressure rollers that are driven on both sides convey the blanks in accurate position through the Evomat. The pressure applied by the rollers is precisely regulated by means of pneumatic cylinders. The speed of transport of the blanks is continuously adjustable. Multiple blanks are safely transported and cleaned side by side, simultaneously, and with positioning accuracy.
The Evomat EVO 500 can be operated by means of a mobile device fitted with a touch control panel or via the integrated control cabinet. The mobile panel is particularly handy during maintenance work.
Optionally, the sturdy steel frame of the Evomat can be equipped with a trolley so that the entire cleaning unit can easily be removed from the line for maintenance.
