Types of shot blasting machines: Which one is right for your business?

There are several types of shot blasting machines available in the market, each one with its own characteristics and specific applications. In this article, we will explore the main types of Mebusa shot blast machines and how to choose the right one for your business needs, depending mainly on the type of part to be blasted and the way it is loaded:

➤ Suspended loading shot blast machines.

Overhead loading machines are easily integrated into in-line processes due to their part loading system. As the name suggests, the parts are suspended in the air by a hoist running on a rail, which can either be unique to the machine or a continuous process line. Common applications: Automotive parts, medium-sized metal parts, industrial components.

➤ Hinged table shot-blasting machines

Hinged tumblast machines are very versatile machines that can be of two types, depending on the material from which the tumblast drum is made; they can be metal for heavy or bulky parts, or rubber coated for smaller parts. Common applications: castings, forgings, aerospace components.

➤ Rotary table shot blasting machines

A rotary table shot blast machine is a machine that can undertake different jobs with a high throughput as long as the treatment is only on one side of the workpiece. It is possible to manufacture a machine with two doors, with the tables attached to the doors, so that while one door is closed and the parts are being blasted, we can comfortably load more parts on the table of the door that remains open. Common applications: precision castings, electrical components, machine parts.

➤ Tunnel shot blasting machines

Tunnel shot blasting machines are ideal for processing very long parts or small parts in long series. Common applications: Screws, bolts, hardware parts, stainless steel parts.

How to choose the right shot blasting machine for your business?
