The RoboClean RC‐1000 robotic corner cleaner represents the first major change in vinyl window and door cleaning in more than 20 years, according to GED. Making its debut at GlassBuild America 2013, the corner cleaner integrates automation technologies that have been used effectively for years in markets where high volume, high quality, safety and precision are top priorities, the company reports. Applying robotic technology to the window and door industry allows for new profiles to be added with ease; complete cleaning all the way into corners with no need for touch-ups; consistent, repeatable movements; multiple angles of attack; and presentation of tools at unique and previously unattainable angles, the supplier reports. Providing a high level of flexibility, the unit's Star Hub rotates to present tools at multiple angles, and the reach of the robotic arm enables tools to clean the square from underneath and off the corners. Working at speeds 10 percent to 15 percent faster than current technologies, the machine also delivers improved quality as tools are no longer limited to step movements, 'chatter' is eliminated on contoured surfaces, and tools are engaged to the profile at the optimum angle no matter what the contour of the profile. The RC‐1000 is part of a new family of robotic cleaners that will also be available in twin-head or four-head configurations.  Watch a video demonstration.
