Blast System Tumbles Parts Gently

The Model T-50 is a rotary basket system designed for batch processing of small components. The tumble-basket blast machine is intended for deburring, deflashing, surface preparation, cosmetic finishing or overall impact treatment of up to approximately 1 cubic-foot of parts per batch. Inside the 76" H x 40" W x 50" D cabinet is a 30" diameter rotating basket with a wide opening to facilitate manual loading of components.

The Model T-50 is a rotary basket system designed for batch processing of small components. The tumble-basket blast machine is intended for deburring, deflashing, surface preparation, cosmetic finishing or overall impact treatment of up to approximately 1 cubic-foot of parts per batch.

Inside the 76" H x 40" W x 50" D cabinet is a 30" diameter rotating basket with a wide opening to facilitate manual loading of components. As the parts turn over and over in the adjustable-speed basket, all surfaces are exposed to blast from up to four suction-blast guns or two pressure-blast nozzles that are rigidly bracketed in position at the best angles and distances for coverage of the batch. Various basket perforation sizes are available.

The company says its tilted basket eliminates the harsh part-on-part impingement that is typical of endless belt and barrel-type tumble blasting equipment, so damage of fragile components is prevented. The system is also claimed to produce greater circulation of parts in the batch, leading to more thorough and consistent coverage, a more uniform finish and much faster cycle times compared to barrel blasters.

The system is available with a hinged flip-down discharge chute that allows faster and easier component unloading. With this option, the rotary basket is fitted with a removable sliding panel. At the end of the timed air washing or blow-off cycle, which follows blast processing, the basket continues to rotate until the slide-out panel is positioned directly over the discharge chute.
