Fully automatic tools cleaning system

The new kolb AQUBE® series offer next-generation cleaning systems - even more efficient, even more compact, easy to handle and maintain, pre-equipped for extended water management and cyber-physically ready for the smart factory (SF ready).

AQUBE® MH5 is a "allround" cleaning system for tools and maintenance cleaning fulfilling almost every requirement such as the cleaning of solder carriers / masks, ESD boxes, magazines, palettes, machinery parts and other small parts from flux residues, oil, dust and grease.

AQUBE® MH5 is a German engineered and manufactured machine with ClosedLoop water reprocessing and a two-tank and up to three circuits configuration which ensures short cycle times and makes this system the perfect economic choice for tools cleaning in electronics production.


  • Two tank system with triple circuit function
  • Digital Factory ready: DNAccess, remote control, traceability (PLC data scanning and memorizing)
  • Fully automatic 3step (optional up to 5Step): cleaning, rinsing (tap water), VMH®-Turbo evaporative drying
  • Horizontal PTFE mounted rotor system with asynchronous spray rotors for thorough wetting (no blind spots)
  • Horizontal cleaning of stencils prossible with special drawer option
  • ClosedLoop reprocessing of cleaning and rinsing fluids as standard feature
  • Process and service intervals PLC controlled
  • Event issuing and software control via touch screen
  • EDGELESS Design and VARIccess® maintenance access: maximum capacity on a very small footprint
  • HT version for high temperature cleaning and rinsing up to 80 °C available
