Inline Conveyors

Surface treatment systems can incorporate inline conveyors operating in a horizontal plane. The movement may be continuous or intermittent with a fixed and including a mobile turntable. When the parts are deposited into the cabinet, additional surface treatment units can be progressively integrated to perform a different treatment such as a washing process or dust blowing in order to complete the process. Automated parts loading equipment and programmable robots are also used for this purpose.

Indexing Turntables

This type of automation involves the usage of a rotary table with stationary or mobile sandblasting nozzles. Different cabinet configurations can be used in order to specifically isolate and sandblast each critical process operations. The use of rotary tables is ideally suited with automated parts loading and unloading. This type of installation is designed to optimize the available floor space for a variety of applications and to accurately position parts for continuous surface treatment processing.

Rotary Baskets

The rotary basket represents the ideal solution for the overall finishing of large quantities of parts in bulk. Baskets of various sizes are available and are driven by variable speed drives. The sandblasting nozzles, which are aimed into the open end of the basket, may vary in numbers but are generally nonmoving. Parts may be inserted into the baskets either manually or automatically. Various arrangements can be made for metered loading, regulating, with considerable precision, the quantity of parts to be processed. The rotary basket machine is ideally suited for the surface treatment of components in bulk.

Loading tables

Manual or automated loading tables can be used to facilitate the handling and positioning of heavy loads. The carriage can be manual or automatic and the sandblasting nozzles can be fixed or oscillating. This system generally includes the blast cabinet with one or many loading tables, located either at the entrance or the exit of the cabinet.
