Sword Brushes clean car bodies after post electro-coating sanding process

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.

Surfaces are thoroughly cleaned

At the Ingolstadt plant of the German automobile manufacturer Audi, Sword Brushes remove dust and contaminations after the post electro-coating sanding process

For a great number of years, Emu feathers removed dust particles from car bodies at the Audi Ingolstadt plant. Recently, Audi has removed the Emu installation in one of its painting lines and has replaced it by Sword Brushes that work with an antistatic cleaning agent. They have been making good experiences with the new installation.
