Guyson Corp. of USA offers a multi-axis CNC grit blaster that was designed for a prep-prior-to-coat application in the aerospace industry. The system includes four-axis blast manipulation directed by a Siemens computer numeric control and a roof-mounted two-axis cartesian gantry with table positional capability of 0-360 degrees. A transfer cart brings the parts to the blast enclosure where three-axis traverse is mounted with four suction guns that continuously blast the part. The cabinet is equipped with a single, vertical servo-driven spindle that serves as the fourth axis for the system when paired with the traverse. Maximum media delivery is ensured by a highly efficient gun design and metering system the company says.

Safety measures include multiple E-stop buttons strategically placed around the entire machine. A vertically mounted area scanner and two-sided safety cage inhibit access to the cart and door when the system is in motion. The blaster also is equipped with Allen-Bradley CR30 software-configurable safety relays.
