Laser cleaning in the automotive industry
The speed and quality of cleaning is a crucial aspect for the production and repair of vehicles and special equipment. Pokkels’ advanced laser technology allows to solve many issues, including the efficient cleaning of parts and surfaces of all sizes and complexities, and the preparation of products for welding and painting. From this article you will learn more about the capabilities of the F-Clean laser cleaning complex.
Processing for welding auto-parts
Welding body parts is an important step in the car manufacturing process. The F-Clean laser system is effectively used for surface pre-treatment before welding. Cleans the heat-affected zone from traces of various contaminants and conservation materials to ensure a secure joint.
After the welding work is done, the laser device will help clean the surface from tarnishing colors and oxide films. The precise positioning of the laser beam ensures treatment without visible traces. The weld does not change its shape during after-treatment.

Paint removal without side effects
The F-Clean laser cleaning system works with all types of paints and polymer coatings. Cleaning is done in layers. During processing, the coating evaporates. After cleaning, it is enough to wipe the surface with a rag and you can proceed to repair work or paint. Deep processing of the smallest details of the product will ensure reliable adhesion of the paint coating.
Local laser radiation allows to clean a certain fragment of the product without damaging the adjacent coating.
Cleaning parts without damage
The laser light affects only the contamination layer. The treated surface remains intact. F-Clean equipment is successfully used to clean engine parts, suspension components and to restore the vintage cars. The device will help clean the rust under the windshield frame without damaging the interior of the cabin or the body.

The case of an auto-parts repair company
Issues: The company is in the business of restoring the appearance of auto-parts. Sandblasting was mainly used for cleaning. The company was no longer satisfied with the quality of cleaning and the problems associated with using this technology: the cost of regularly required abrasive, the time spent on removing it, the damage caused when sand gets into body parts or the engine.
Pokkels solution: Using the F-Clean laser cleaning system allowed the company to clean body and car parts faster and better without any incidental contamination. The company’s spending reduced due to no need in consumables.

Cleaning and welding automation
Pokkels develops automatic cleaning systems. It is possible to create a robotic system that will be integrated into an existing production line or to develop a system from scratch.
The automatic cleaning system is tailored to your individual requirements and is designed to operate 24/7 while keeping operating costs low. The robot can be made in any form factor depending on the task at hand: from a robotic arm to a magnetic robot.
It is possible to create a device that will completely do the welding and cleaning work: pre-clean the product, weld the parts, treat the surface after welding, removing tarnishing colors and oxide films.
