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 colour, oxides, uneven surfaces and other impurities from the surface of the part are 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. Here are the steps that go into pre-finishing a part using a shot blasting machine.
So, Sandblasting or Shot Blasting, What Should You Use?
Well, the answer to 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 the same can be said about large quantities and shot blasting.
It is quite 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.
