Automated blast cleaning improves on all those areas that are weak in manual blasting and brings key process parameters under control and provides a high degree of repeatability, so long as the geometry of the components is relatively simple. However, due to the linear nature (x-y axis) of traditional automated process control, when the shapes and contours of the components are complex, and the blasted surface finish is critical, a conventional automated blast system may not be able to meet all the precision component manufacturer's quality requirements.
Fully automated robotic precision blasting systems are proven to deliver real daily running cost savings in both compressed air consumption and media usage. Far fewer blast guns are required than in the traditional blanket coverage approach with multiple guns. Additional regular cost savings from robotic blasting include greatly reduced blast media costs through less media breakdown and lower wastage. Furthermore, a smaller and cheaper dust collector can be specified, with reduced waste requiring disposal. Introduction of this type of precise robot blasting can also eliminate operator Health & Safety risks relating to both RSI and vibration white finger problems.
For complex precision components and shot peening, robotically controlled blasting delivers an outstanding range of benefits. It delivers a precise blast stand off distance around the surface contour of the most complex shapes coupled with the minimum of overspray and the maximum of blast efficiency.
Top Ten Reasons For Robot Blasting
To assist potential customers accurately evaluate this strategic move towards robot blasting, Guyson has produced a four page brochure that highlights the top ‘10 Reasons for Robot Blasting’.
Printed or emailable PDF copies of the ‘10 Reasons For Robot Blasting’ can be freely obtained, by any prospective or existing customer, by contacting Guyson’s Customer Service Department on +44 (0)1756 799911 or emailing email@example.com
New Addition to Demonstration Room
Guyson has recently upgraded its advanced robotic capabilities in the demonstration and engineering centre to assist its customers with their process evaluation and precision blast simulation. With this fully integrated working robotic blasting cell incorporated into the demonstration area of the factory, Guyson will be able to further demonstrate how adoption of these sophisticated new precision robotic blasting techniques can deliver investment cost savings over traditional multiple blast gun systems, which are often much larger and more complicated to validate and continuously maintain.
Latest News: Guyson has recently entered into a partnership agreement with ABB Robotics, in a strategic move to expand its robotically controlled blasting capabilities in Europe. For further information please see our news item on this subject by clicking on the link above.
Prospective users of Guyson automated blasting systems are encouraged to submit sample components for free feasibility testing in the company’s extensive development workshop at Skipton, England. Contact Guyson now - see contact details to the right of this page.
