Apellix ® Partners with Citra-Shield to Promote Safer, More Efficient Cleaning

Apellix has been granted authorization by Citra-Shield to implement their solutions, with the objective of promoting a safer and environmentally friendly cleaning approach.

Apellix has announced a new partnership with Citra-Shield, which is now certified to use

its eco-friendly cleaner. This collaboration allows for a more streamlined cleaning process that eliminates the need for harmful chemicals, pressure washing, or scrubbing. The result is a safer, more efficient, and more sustainable cleaning process that benefits facilities managers and others. The Apellix B1 and X1 Power Wash systems are now authorized by Citra-Shield to administer their solutions, aiming to advocate for a safer and more sustainable cleaning method that prolongs the lifespan of the cleaning process.

"We are excited to collaborate with Apellix to show our customers an easier, safer, and much faster way to clean," says Joe Macomber, Partner at Citra-Shield. "Citra-Shield does not discolor paint and can penetrate root structures. Unlike more chemical-dependent products, Apellix Power Wash drones can apply Citra-Shield at elevation without lifts or scaffolding, making it a safer and faster alternative to traditional methods."

Apellix has gained recognition for its patented, cutting-edge drone technology, which can accurately and efficiently clean surfaces in difficult or risky settings.

"Having Apellix as a certified application method for Citra-Shield is an evolutionary leap forward in cleaning large structures," stated Robert Dahlstrom, CEO of Apellix. "Using an Apellix Power Wash drone to apply the Eco-Friendly cleaner Citra-Shield to the entire building envelope can be accomplished 20 times faster than traditional methods that rely on lifts or scaffolding, keeping workers safe with their feet on the ground."

Facilities managers who have used Citra-Shield applied by an Apellix Power Wash drone report being amazed at the quality and efficacy of the application process and the cleanliness of their structures. These real-world tangible benefits and results are impressive. Citra-Shield Cleaning Systems is an innovative no-rinse cleaner and stain remover with a pending patent. It is safe and efficient in eliminating stains caused by mold, mildew, algae, moss, and lichen from exterior surfaces. This product does not rely on hazardous chemicals or the potentially damaging effects of pressure cleaning or brushing.

Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
