Air Amplifier Helps Keep Work Area Clean

I spoke with a customer early this week that was wanting to share their application with us and inquire about more units.  This customer manufactures machinery for the automotive industry.  They had built a machine for a car manufacturer to remove the protective film from the car windows when they are installed.  The problem the manufacturer had before the Super Air Amplifier was installed was that protective film would accumulate and cling to anything around the work area.  The trash cans would fill rapidly and have to be emptied which slowed production.

Our customer designed a machine that used a vision sensor to see the operators hand enter the entrainment area of the Super Air Amplifier.  The Amplifier was then ducted away from the work area to a large waste container.  This way the operator would simply pull the protective film off then, just like they would throw it into the trash, they would move their hand close to the suction side of the Super Air Amplifier and it would vacuum away the waste film.

The best part of this is that they were able to install a Super Air Amplifier at each work station and convey all the scrap trim to a single container which made for a cleaner work area, easier disposal of the film, less downtime, and a safer work environment for the operators.

If you have an application you would like to discuss please contact us.
