Robotic Laser Cleaning

LoopCLEAN is a robotic laser cleaning system that cleans complex components, industrial equipment and surfaces. It provides pioneering levels of speed, precision and safety compared to handheld laser cleaning and traditional methods such as media blasting. It is available at three distinct levels of automation.

Applications include the cleaning of industrial moulds, removal of grease and oxide layers prior to welding, preparation of surfaces prior to adhesive bonding, rust and paint removal, nuclear decommissioning and decontamination.

Key capabilities

Uses 80-85% less energy than typical abrasive blasting technologies.


No abrasive materials and no consumables.

low cost

Low cost of running and ownership compared to other methods.

Laser ablation means no damage to underlying substrate.


Our standard offering provides automated laser cleaning whilst retaining human operation over the generation of robot and cleaning programs. Using laser ablation, contaminants are removed without doing damage to the underlying substrate. The operator programs the robot and controls its range of motion via the robot pendant. This is ideal for performing simple and repetitive tasks without the need for complex programming software.



LoopCLEAN with RobotMaster provides a higher level of precision and automation. A CAD model of the tool to be cleaned is imported into RobotMaster software where the cleaning paths are simulated and refined. The code is transferred to the robot and the equipment is laser cleaned.

LoopCLEAN Auto

LoopCLEAN Auto is cutting-edge automated robot path generation combined with state-of-the-art laser cleaning technology. It uses RealPATH, our pioneering software, to push the boundaries of automation in the cleaning process. By leveraging 3D imaging with singularity and collision avoidance algorithms to generate the robot and cleaning programs, it removes the need for component CAD and offline programming.
