Guyson Corp.’s RB-RXS-400 robotic grit-blasting machine offers a 180-degree indexing table and servomotor-driven spindles holding multi-component fixtures for production surface preparation applications. The compact blast system features a six-axis FANUC M-10iA robot positioned at the rear of the blast cabinet to direct a single blast nozzle. The nozzle manipulator maintains the correct angle, stand-off distance and surface speed throughout blasting, while the servo spindles are controlled as auxiliary axes of coordinated robotic motion to accurately orient each component.

According to Guyson, the robotic blast system delivers a consistent finish on complex-shaped components while consuming less air and grit. It then can be reconfigured to process workpieces with a completely different geometry.
