Comco is displaying its manual microblasting system which includes the company’s AccuFlo and ProCenter Plus. The company’s micro-precision sandblasting systems use fine abrasives, miniature nozzles and abrasive feeds. They are designed for safety and intended as an alternative to knives, tumblers and chemicals for refining small, high-value parts. The systems remove conformal coating, deburr cross-drilled holes, texture titanium, and process intricate and delicate parts. The process is said to transition seamlessly from manual to automated applications.
