Wheelabrator has the most extensive portfolio of airblast machines.
We offer manual machines for blast cleaning through to highly complex peening machines for the aerospace Industry. And our extensive experience within the global technology centres for airblast machines means Wheelabrator has the biggest competence pool in this field.
With our commitment to continuous enhancement of blasting processes in combination with the latest innovative machine concepts, Wheelabrator customers always receive the best technologies.
What is an airblast machine?Airblast machines can take the form of a dry blastroom/cabinet or wetblast cabinets.
During dry blasting (dry free flowing media) and wet blasting (media water mix) the blast media is pneumatically accelerated by compressed air and projected by nozzles onto the component.
The blasting task determines the selection of dry/wet blast and abrasive media to be utilised. In both air and wet blasting the blast nozzles can be installed in fixed positions or can be operated manually or by automatic nozzle manipulators or robots.
Manual Dry and Wet Blast Cabinets
Dry and Wet Blast Cabinets for manual shot blasting. A complete range of airblast cabinets are available, from manual to highly automated machines.
Satellite Table Machines
The essential component of a satellite table machine is the indexing mechanism which rotates workpieces through fixed positions within the blasting machine. It provides the advantage that new parts can be loaded while others are processed.
Wheelabrator has developed a variety of table machines to meet the requirements of our customers with regards to their material flow. In addition to the traditionally fixed tables and turntables there are machine types with one or two mobile turntables.
Frame Machines are the most flexible machine types. This type of machine is best suited to processing complex parts which need to be blasted in specific areas located all over the part.
Internal Cleaning Machines
Internal airblast machines reliably blast interior cavities of simple or complex castings, for example cylinder head bores and water jackets, crank cases, engine blocks and suspension components.
Closed Circuit Machines
Wheelabrator offers a range of pressure fed Closed Circuit Blasting Machines which are designed to be powerful, easy to use, compact and manoeuvrable.
Peening and Blasting Cells and Systems
Wheelabrator offers a range of peening or blasting cells and systems, fully automatized by PLC, CNC and robots to ensure the highest demand on the market.
