Guyson has released the multi-axis CNC grit blaster, designed for preparation prior to coating application in the aerospace industry. The heart of this system is based around the blast manipulation with four-axis controls directed by a Siemens CNC and roof-mounted two-axis cartesian gantry with 360-degree table positional capability. The transfer cart brings the parts to the blast enclosure where three-axis traverse is mounted with four suction guns that continuously blast the part. The cabinet is equipped with a single, vertical, servo-driven spindle that serves as the fourth axis for the system when paired with the traverse. Maximum media delivery is ensured by a highly efficient gun design and metering system.

With this complex and precise system, safety is a top priority. Multiple strategically placed E-stop buttons are placed around the entire machine. There is a vertically mounted area scanner and two-sided safety cage to inhibit access to cart and door when in motion. The system is equipped with an Allen-Bradley CR30 programmable, relay-based safety control.
