What is Shot Blasting?
Technologies of Shot Blasting
While surface treatment sector has different technologies, Shot Blasting primarily utilizes two methods of abrasive delivery.
Process of Cleaning in an Industrial Shot Blasting Machine
When a metal or non-metal part is manufactured in a factory, it does not come out as the shiny product seen in the showrooms or retails shops. Before all the shine and color, oxides, uneven surfaces and other impurities from the surface of the production part is removed.
While it can be done by hand, the process is neither safe, nor efficient. This is where most manufacturing plants use Shot Blasting machines. They are large, extremely efficient, safe, and easy to use. And here are the steps that go into pre-finishing a production part using shot blasting machine.
One of the main reasons why manual cleaning of production parts were largely discarded was because of the cost and also the environmental impact of the dust production. Oxides and metal as well as non-metal small particles were released into the air and that was both harmful for the worker as well as the environment.
Well, that question purely depends on the need you have. If the parts are small in size and volume then Sandblasting is an economical approach, while same can be said about large quantities and Shot Blasting.
It is come economical for an industrial operation to use Shot Blasting as components of different sizes need to be processed. While the portability and relative ease of use makes Sandblasting a technology to have.
