Skipton-based finishing equipment manufacturer Guyson International recently designed, constructed, and deployed a Guyson RB10 PF robotically controlled blasting system for a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial process instrumentation. This system has been customized to deliver a fine cosmetic finish to various stainless flow meters.

The Guyson RB10 blast cabinet incorporates a compact 7-axis turntable at its core, facilitating precise component rotation to ensure thorough exposure to the blast nozzles. This method provides a clean and uniform finish across all component surfaces undergoing blasting, a critical requirement in industries where consistency is demanded. The blasting process employs two pressure-feed blast nozzles mounted on an ABB IRB 1600 robotic arm, guaranteeing a level of blasting consistency unattainable with manual or alternative automatic methods.

A Guyson Cyclone Reclamator is positioned above a sieving system and the G55 Pressure Pot to uphold media quality during blasting and achieve a more uniform surface finish. Furthermore, to address high throughput demands, the machine features a specially designed C800 Dust Collector mounted at an extended height to accommodate a heavy-duty waste bag.

The sophisticated blast system is overseen and managed via a PLC/HMI graphical display, providing real-time visual feedback on system operation. Users can customise and establish up to ten recipes for the machine's operation through this interface. Among the parameters adjustable within these recipes are blasting pressure, activation or deactivation of blast guns, air wash pressure settings, and blast gun traversal speed over the component. The capability to modify several parameters to adapt to evolving production requirements ensures exceptional flexibility and efficiency throughout the machine's lifespan.

Prospective users of Guyson automated blast systems are encouraged to submit sample components for free feasibility testing to the manufacturer's extensive development workshop situated in Skipton. For more information click here, call +44 (0)1756 799911, or email today.
