Metal working, surface coating, surface treatment - continuous overhead conveyor wheel blasting machine
A metal preservation company in Benelux was looking for a durable customised solution for blasting at short notice. Not surprisingly they opted for Straaltechniek International. For this customer we designed and developed a feed-through conveyor wheel blasting machine and a blast cabinet for two operators. The complete system was designed, manufactured and installed at the client on turnkey basis within 12 weeks from the start of the project.
Forward curved blades:
The wheel blasting machine is equipped with 12 GN wheel shot blast wheels. The unique forwards curved blades ensure a maximum ejection speed with optimal blasting media flow. The installation’s feed-through area is 80 cm wide, 250 cm high and 9 metres long.
The wheel blasting machine forms a part of a fully integrated overhead conveyor transport system. This first guides steel profiles from the loading station through the wheel blasting machine and then transports them via the powder coating machine to the oven and the unloading station.
The blast cabinet has multiple stages where the dust is contained and the product exits the blasting zone via the conveyor system to be handled by the operators. The system thus offered a streamlined and seamless process flow for the client with increase productivity and product quality.
