The finishing chamber of the robotic blasting system is designed with a reinforced vestibule at the rear to house an ABB Robotics IRB-2600 robot.

Guyson Corp.’s RB-10 robotic blast system is designed for grit blast surface preparation of gas turbine blades and buckets up to one meter in length. The 60" × 60" finishing chamber of the robotic blasting system is designed with a heavily reinforced 60" × 48" vestibule at the rear to house an ABB Robotics IRB-2600 robot that directs a single pressure-blast nozzle. A 24" diameter turntable inside the blast enclosure is servomotor-driven and controlled as a seventh axis of robotic motion to enable precise orientation of the work piece during the robotic grit-blasting process cycle. To facilitate handling of heavy components, the system is designed with a crane slot and a roof-mounted jib hoist of 500-lb weight capacity.
