Guyson, a leading provider of cutting-edge finishing solutions, recently installed a Rotary Indexing Spindle RXS900 blast machine for a prominent supplier of medical dosing pens in China. This installation followed its predecessor's exceptional 12-year operational performance, in which time it produced 40 million stainless steel tubes for the medical drug delivery sector.

The RXS900 blast machine is an advanced automated finishing system strategically designed for labour efficiency. Its versatility allows for both manual loading and robot-tended lights-out operations. Featuring blast media flow monitoring and a positively driven toothed belt to ensure uniform blast coverage during component rotation, the RXS900 is renowned for delivering consistency and elevated visual and tactile quality. These attributes are of utmost importance in demanding production environments such as the medical and consumer product industries.

In the case of this model, the machine has been customised to incorporate four blasting stations, each equipped with three spindles. This setup unlocks the capability to blast three pieces every 18 seconds. Undergoing a continuous 24/7 robotic operation translates to an impressive throughput of 5,000,000 pieces per year.

The RXS900 is made seamless through its intuitive Human-Machine Interface (HMI) screen. From this screen, the user can view numerous updates on the ongoing status of the machine's current operation and edit and set specific recipes for the operation dependent on the operational requirements of the current process. The users can edit parameters such as enabling/disabling some blast guns, altering the number of passes the blast guns will complete of the components, and amending the positioning or speed at which the blast guns move. With the capability to store up to ten different machine recipes, operators can quickly adapt to changing production requirements, ensuring flexibility and efficiency.

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, England. For more information click here, call +44 (0)1756 799911, or email today.
