Dry Ice Cleaning Industrial Robots

Apr 5, 2024 | Dry Ice Blasting

Industrial robots have the revolutionized the manufacturing industry by automating repetitive labor-intensive tasks, improving quality, and reducing corporate overhead by lowering production costs and increasing profits.

But even industrial robots need maintenance to remain productive, efficient and profitable.

Industrial robotic manufacturers recommend comprehensive maintenance programs for all of their machines to prevent breakdowns, extend the life of the machines, and to ensure their reliability.

The maintenance program for each specific industrial robot is different.

For instance, KUKA Robotics machines should be cleaned and serviced every 10,000 hours, while FANUC Robotics prefers that their industrial robots are cleaned and maintained every 3,850 hours, or at least once in every 12 month production period.

Here are just a few items that should be included in your industrial robotics maintenance plan:

  • Thoroughly clean your industrial robot with dry ice blast cleaning
  • Inspect for mechanical wear and damage
  • Clean control cabinet
  • Checking for defective seals and oil leaks
  • Changing Controller and Robot batteries
  • Inspect all cables and connectors for damage
  • Re-seat all internal and external cables
  • Tighten all internal connections
  • Purge and replace all lubricants
  • Verify zero position mastering
  • Cleaning and inspect ventilation system
  • Cleaning and inspect transformer compartment
  • Replace all filters

Of course, Dry Ice Works just cleans industrial robots with dry ice blasting. We don’t build robots, sell them or service them either. 

Dry Ice Works recommends that industrial robot technicians check their owner’s manual for the specific maintenance requirements of the machines and industrial robots they use.

In order for your robots to receive the very best in preventative maintenance service, your trusted robotics technicians need to have unobstructed access to these valuable machines.
