Guyson Corp’s new robotic gritblasting system is designed to enable consistent production of a specified finish on a wide variety of complex-shaped components. The Model RB-9 is said to offer precision and flexibility in critical surface preparation work with a six-axis robot with a suitable payload and range of motion serves as a nozzle manipulator when mated with a rotary table blast cabinet. Turntable rotation is powered by a servomotor and controlled as a seventh axis of robotic motion, allowing extremely accurate positioning and movement of the workpiece during automated blasting routines. Thus, the RB-9 is capable of constantly maintaining a specific nozzle angle, offset (stand-off distance) and surface speed as it follows the intricate contours of components in execution of the programmed grit blasting process. The unit can be optionally equipped with a crane slot in the roof of the blast cabinet to facilitate loading and unloading of heavy workpieces by an overhead hoist.
