Blasting Aluminium extrusion dies, foundry, die casting, metal working, metal preparation, surface preparation - custom shot blasting machines
Straaltechniek International developed a shot blasting machine for a Swedish company that develops and manufactures customized aluminium extrusions and components.
Due to the investment in a new factory an inquiry for a new shotblasting machine was made. A part of the process involves cleaning of the extrusion-dies from lye. Straaltechniek delivered a customized turn-key machine including a special control-panel to meet the customers` requirements to ensure ergonomic handling. The demand for minimal profile and wear on the dies was achieved through frequency inverters and a special blast media, also provided by Straaltechniek.
This compact machine is provided with one GN Wheel shot blasting turbine which is capable of blasting shot media at very high speeds and the blasted media is recovered from the bottom and with a small elevator and cleaning system, the media is rendered reusable. The dust extraction system ensures clean blast cabin.
