Dual-Turntable, 4-Axis Pressure Blast Systems

EQUIPMENT: In order to meet the growing demand for multiple axis nozzle control systems, Empire has developed a dual-turntable, 4-axis pressure blast system with state-of-the-art PLC controls. System was further enhanced with a touch-screen display for operator inputs. The user-friendly design surpasses many other similar types of air blast systems available today.
The 3-axis, 4-nozzle manipulator provides access to hard-to-reach areas from above or below the part. The X and Y axes position the manipulator to maintain nozzle distance. The arcing action of the 3rd axis (wrist-type) is able to clean the top and underside of all surfaces and other complex profiles on specialized parts.
INDUSTRIES: Molding facilities, automotive, tire, aircraft engine and frame manufacturers.

MH-3 Guns Speed Production and Slash Maintenance Requirements

Our MH-3 blast gun boosts production rates by 10 to 25 percent when compared to suction guns based on traditional designs. But even more impressively, the MH-3 continues blasting without maintenance at least 10 times longer than previous designs, including its predecessor, our MH-2. Independent tests have demonstrated the MH-3’s staying power many times.
