Sand/Glass Bead Blasting
Our 12" tumble blaster is an enclosed cabinet machine that has a rotating basket with a sandblast gun aimed into it. The random tumbling action insures that all parts in the basket are completely blasted when the cycle is finished. This deburring process is used to remove tough flash, light burrs and heavy scale or rust from recesses, create even, texturized surfaces, perform tough cleaning jobs and mask imperfections.
Our two 40" Dry Blast cabinets work by using a high pressure air line and an abrasive feeder line, both of which connect to a nozzle or gun type device that mixes the air with the abrasive particles in a ratio of 2 parts air to 1 part abrasive. Media is recycled from the gun system to the hopper and back to the gun system. This deburring process can perform such operations as scaling and rust removal, deburring - including hard to reach burrs, frosting, can produce either bright or dull texture finishes, and prepare a surface for bonding or coating.
Both types of metal deburring machines can shoot both glass bead and aluminum oxide. Glass beads can be used to texturize, descale, or remove light burrs and die-cast flash leaving a smooth bright satin finish. Abrasive deburring grits can be used for more aggressive work leaving a dull satin finish and are useful for creating a good surface for bonding.
