Automated blast products brochure published by Guyson

1 min read

Guyson International has issued a new brochure that showcases its range of automated blast systems. Through this 12-page brochure, Guyson aims to show that, as manufacturing moves to greater levels of automation, control and integration, its range of automated blast systems is designed to fully integrate with customer production systems and provide the most appropriate level of automation.

Potential customers are invited to use the brochure, in conjunction with a Guyson sales engineer, to guide them in selecting the most suitable machine for their specific application. This consultation is supported by free sample evaluation, undertaken in Guyson’s Component Finishing Centre, which will validate the optimum blast media, pressure settings and machine type.

The brochure guides users from the entry level semi-automatic Multiblast RSB blast system, through to the fully automatic RB (robotically controlled) range.

Guyson’s Multiblast RSB provides automated blasting typically when cycle time is less of a concern or multiple components need to be processed at the same time. The RSB can be configured to suit almost any shot blasting or peening process, minimising manual intervention and providing repeatable and consistent results, says the company.

For higher throughput, Guyson offers the rotary indexing RXS400, which has two indexing blast stations that enable simultaneous loading and processing, while the Multiblast RXS900 achieves increased capacity provided by six or 12 spindles. The RXS900 version can process multiple parts at the same time, coupled with separate unloading and off-loading stations. Cycle times of less than 10 seconds per part can be supported.

Alternatively, if customers require fully robotic automation, Guyson offers its RB systems, which typically consist of a 6-axis robot, with optional 7th axis machine turntable, for maximum flexibility. The robot can either manipulate the blast guns to accurately process individual or multiple components, or can move more complex individual parts under the blast stream from a fixed blast-gun set up.
