Christiani Industry Model Compact Car Wash Line

Stand Alone Model

The model Compact Car Wash Line simulates an automatically working washing unit for cars as used e. g. in garages and gas stations. The car wash line consists of a rack being portable in its X-axis with a horizontal brush and two vertical brushes attached on it. The simulated process shows a car model getting "washed": The program cycle begins with starting rotation of all brushes and starting movement the Portal in –X-direction. Thereby the horizontal brush will be moved in its lowest position. This position is indicated by a mechanical position switch.

The horizontal brush follows the shape of the car, controlled by two reflection light switch signals while the portal moves to its end position. After a short break all brushes start rotating again and the Portal moves in +X-direction. The horizontal brush follows the shape of the car like before, controlled by two reflection light switch signals. When the portal reaches the end position, the horizontal brush moves in +Z-direction to its top position and all brush rotations get stopped.
