Twinsburg, OH – GED Integrated Solutions (GED), the progressive solutions provider to the global window and door fabrication industry, has been named the winner in the national 2014 Crystal Achievement Awards “Most Innovative Machinery: Frame, Sash and Door Fabrication” category. This recognition marks GED’s tenth Crystal Achievement. Sponsored by Window & Door magazine, the coveted annual awards recognize significant innovations in window and door technology, manufacturing and marketing.

GED’s new ROBOCLEAN™ (RC-2000) Twin-Head Vinyl Corner Cleaning System is the machine that garnered the company this distinction. As the latest addition to GED’s family of Vinyl Fabrication Technologies, ROBOCLEAN was designed by integrating automation technologies that have been used effectively for years in markets where high volume, quality, safety and precision are top priorities. The technology? Robotics.

For the window and door manufacturing industry, this 12 axis robotic machine, with infinite axis possibilities, provides complete corner cleaning with no need for touch ups; consistent, repeatable movements, and presentation of tools at unique and previously unattainable angles. Its patentpending Star Hub rotates to present tools at multiple angles of attack. Chatter is eliminated on a contoured surface, and quality remains consistent through Orthogonal cleaning – engaging the tool to the profile at the optimum angle no matter what the contour of the profile. ROBOCLEAN (RC-2000) additionally provides low maintenance as it is fully enclosed and self-contained with minimal exposed cable and moving parts and no exposure to vinyl dust and chips to mechanical wear items.

Since its first introduction to the North American window and door manufacturing industry, ROBOCLEAN (RC-2000) is lauded as the first major change in the ideology of cleaning vinyl windows and doors in over 20 years.
