robotic torch maintenance center

Designed to improve overall equipment effectiveness in robotic MIG welding cells, the fully automated AUTOCLEAN® from Nasarc is engineered to increase productivity and quality while minimizing downtime and costs.

Owners Manual



Automated Nozzle Reamer

Independent reaming cycle using a high strength coated reaming bit designed to effectively remove and discard spatter from nozzle.


Automated Nozzle Removal and Replacement

Fully automated removal and replacement allows access to contact tip and diffuser for enhanced cleaning, an industry first.

Engineered to support rapid tip change-out when used in combination with the AUTOTIP® automatic tip changer.


Automated Tip and Diffuser Cleaning

Rotary wire brush design ensures thorough cleaning of diffuser portholes and contact tip for more reliable gas delivery and reduced porosity.


Automated Wire Cutter

Innovative pinch-off wire cutter design creates a “V” shape for optimal arc starts.

Powerful and precise enough to handle all wire sizes up to 0.063” mild steel.


Automated Anti-Spatter Sprayer

Vortex action sprayer delivers a radial spray pattern to uniformly coat the interior surface of the nozzle and help prevent spatter buildup.


Nozzle Gas Flow Sensor

Designed to detect and measure adequate gas flow at the point of use.


Nozzle Presence Sensor

Post- cleaning, presence sensor ensures the nozzle is secured and ready for the next weld.


Intuitive User Interface

Designed to allow for easy setup, diagnostics and reporting at point of use.


Footprint Size:       18” H x 11.5” L x 10” W

Air Supply:             85 PSI, 22 CFM

Power Supply:       24 VDC, 1.0 A


Cycle Time

Process features minimize overall robot cycle time.


Enhanced torch cleaning improves gas flow and minimizes weld defects.


Eight processes in a small envelope offers maximum flexibility.


Operator entry into robot weld cell is reduced.


High torque, high power industry benchmark ream motor.
