PRODUCTS

Icom develops, engineers and builds systems for washing, deburring and handling of mechanical parts.

Washing machines

Tunnel washing machine types

  • Walking beam
  • Harpoon conveyor
  • Chain conveyor
  • With other kinds of conveyor:
    – with spray washing
    – with flushed washing
    – with target washing
    – with IF (injection flood) washing
    – with high pressure deburring

In line washing machine with general washing and/or target washing of the part.
Parts drying is provided after washing with blowing nozzles and/or using vacuum drying.
Part handling is designed according to dimension, weight and shape. Walking beam or conveyor transfer solutions are selected accordingly.
All washers can either be supplied with an independent filtration system or can be connected to the customer’s plant centralized system.
The washing equipment is complete with a mist extractor system which can either be connected to an exhaust stack or with a multistage mist separator with outlet directly into the plant ambient.
A High Pressure deburring function can be included in the washing equipment if required by specifications.
Deburring solutions are designed according to part shape and can be performed with rotating systems for surfaces, linear, fan nozzles or with specific lances for specific points or oil ducts. Deburring of specific points can be provided by a robot.

Drawer style washing modules

Washing machines where the part enters and leaves the machine on the same side.
This kind of equipment, upon the required necessities, can be placed as well in line as off line.
If placed in line suitable means for loading and unloading of the part as for instance robot, pick and place, gantry or conveyor with rotation table shall be provided.

This kind of modular washer offers, based on the specific necessities and the required cycle time, a maximum of flexibility as you have following possibilities of machine built:

  • Single module (the part gets treated / processed in one single station)
  • Multiple modules ( part processing is performed in different stations)

This kind of washer offers high flexibility, the complete cleaning process and the type of part handling proposed are depending on the specific requirements of the customer and can include general washing, injection flood washing and can be complete of deburring features if required.

Dial or Rotary table style washers

ICOM range of dial washers include solutions with:

  • 2 stations
  • 4 stations
  • 6 stations

According to process complexity and required takt time.

Washers with pallets

  • with vertical running pallets
  • with horizontally running pallets
  • with hooked on pallets

Carousel style washers

Robotized washing modules

This kind of washing equipment is either designed wit:

  • robots to hold the part directly or part+pallet

  • robot holding specific wash tools

The robotized washing modules are available as fully automatic or semi automatic mode modules, depending on customer’s requirements.
The robotized solution allows higher flexibility, processing more part types of the same family.
The robot, once taken the part from the loading station, handles the part through the process stations for washing, deburring and drying. Once the process is complete the robot drops the cleaned part in the unloading station.

For applications where the robot handles the tools a dedicated handling system will transfer the part through the different stations.

Special washing machines

These machines are specially designed to process different types of parts.
Depending on customer’s choice automatic part type change or with manual part type change can be implemented.

In both cases our machines will be provided with electromechanical part type recognition system
Our special machine program includes:

  • Prototype washing equipment
  • Washing equipment for big size parts
  • Washing machines with monorail chain conveyor
  • Conveyor washing equipment for plastic packaging
  • Linear washing equipment for windscreens/glass parts

The cleaning process and washing machine configuration are engineered and proposed during the offer release.

AUTOMATION

Conveyors (internal/external)

ICOM can supply different complete conveyor solution, linear or with vertical or horizontal pallet recirculation, according to part, process and plant automation.

Gantry loaders

Using standardized components we are able to offer a large range of gantry solutions.

These automation systems are used to load and unload CNC machines, and control units, and ICOM washers.

The mechanical structure is designed for minimum workshop floor space and to allow complete access to the working area.

Our gantries are built with standard steel beams or anodized aluminium profiles, on which the guides for the vertical and horizontal slides are assembled.

The slides are controlled through electric motors which can be asynchronous (with or without VFD), in direct continuous current or of brushless type, depending on the kind of task to be performed.

The grippers can be commercial standard type or custom tailored as per engineering specification.

The mechanical coupling system has reduced play.

FILTRATION SYSTEMS (since 2015):

Drum filters, hydrostatic gravity filters, floor level filter with paper media

Vacuum filter with and without paper media
