The system is designed with a turntable inside the blast enclosure that is servomotor-driven and controlled as a seventh axis of robotic motion.

Guyson Corp.’s RB-10 robotic blast system for grit blast surface preparation of gas turbine blades and buckets is designed with a heavily reinforced vestibule at the rear to house an ABB Robotics IRB-2600 robot that directs a single pressure-blast nozzle. The system is designed with a turntable inside the blast enclosure that is servomotor-driven and controlled as a seventh axis of robotic motion to enable precise orientation of the workpiece during the robotic grit-blasting process cycle. To facilitate handling of heavy components, the system is provided with a crane slot and a roof-mounted jib hoist of 500-lb capacity.
