Guyson's RB-RXS-400 compact robotic blast system can fixture three to five components simultaneously on servo-driven spindles mounted on a 180-degree indexing table, enabling precise surface preparation and loading during the blast cycle. The grit-blasting machine uses a six-axis FANUC M-10iA robot positioned at the rear of the blast cabinet to direct a single blast nozzle. Through coordinated robotic motion, the spindles accurately orient each component while the nozzle manipulator constantly adjusts for correct angle, stand-off distance and surface speed.
According to Guyson, the RB-RXS-400 blast system offers consistent finish on complexly shaped components while consuming less air and grit. In addition, it is said that the machine eases reconfiguration to process parts with completely different geometries.
