Unified Technologies provides manual and automated sand blast machines often called “shotblast” equipment.
What is shotblasting? To bombard or propel a media by attacking a surface of a material with tremendous amounts of media grains representing an enormous number of impacts, which will clean or impart a specific finish on a substraight.
Shotblasting can be performed by means of air or wheel depending upon many factors. The media or shot can be steel balls, or grit of various size and materials.
Automatic blast cleaning and shot peening machines can effect surface treatment operations on workloads of almost any nature. Operation of the blasting equipment is strate forward and does not require special training.
The cleaning process of our machines is extremely easy and economical. In fact, they represent the best energy, time and labor saving technique. Piece handling may occur by means of: revolving table – tumble conveyor – overhead (hanger) conveyor – roller conveyor, flat belt conveyor, and other work transport systems.
The blastwheel is the heart of airless shot blast cleaning equipment. They are high-efficient, dynamically balanced, and provide means of which the media is propelled to the substraight. Airless blasting or wheelblasting is 16.5 times more efficient than air blasting!
The actual blast cleaning or shot peening process is conducted completely automatically. Workloads are initially introduced into the blasting machine. One or more rapidly rotating centrifugal wheels bombard each workload with tremendous amounts of media grains representing an enormous number of impacts.
In general, the activities of the operator are mainly limited to loading and unloading although we do provide equipment with fully automated or partially automated loading and unloading systems.
The media can vary from steel, stainless steel, chilled cast iron, non-ferrous metals, ceramic beads, plastic, and others and it is selected in strict conjunction with the application and the required results. We can assist with choosing the proper media material, shape, size, and velocity.
