ATEX rotation axis as cleaning brush for painting robots

In its technical centre, PTM mechatronics developed a flexibly applicable rotation axis, which is able to conduct diverse tasks or drive machines in ATEX zone 0.

The rotation axis can simply be integrated in different housings or machines. Length and construction of the axis can be adapted to customer requirements. The drive itself is certified for ATEX zone 1. Key feature is the combination with the PTM zone separation flange, which was especially designed in our in-house development department. It secures the separation between ATEX zone 1 outside and ATEX zone 0 inside the machine.

The ATEX certified rotation axis offers numerous different fields of application. For example, it functions as a cleaning brush for painting robots. Painting robots have to clean their brushes after a certain time of work or in case of a colour change. The painting robot moves its spray nozzle towards the rotating axis with cleaning brush and thus cleans its work tool completely autonomously. Other applications are cleaning systems. Fixed horizontally or vertically inside of a cleaning chamber, the axis rotates dirty parts, which have been fixed to the axis previously. The fixed cleaning nozzle now reaches all parts from all sides. A perfect cleaning result is guaranteed.

In its technical centre, PTM mechatronics develops individual products according to customer requirements. Thus, the fields of application of the rotation axis is unlimited.
