Commercial shotblasting is available in our automatic department, using various size ball shot and grit. We have a rubber belted machine for more delicate work, where small items are accommodated. The automatic section also caters for high volumes to J.I.T requirements and small batches as required.
Automatic blasting is used for many different reasons within industry. The foremost reasons being:
Cleaning of materials i.e. removing coatings, paint, powder coating etc, foundry sand, mill scale, de-scaling, surface profiling and as a surface preparation for painting or powder coating. Shot peening (if we could plz have this word as click on link to shot peening). Another benefit to automatic blasting is a reduced effect on our environment, as no chemicals are used to clean or de-scale.
