At the core of all blasting processes is the concept of transferring impact energy on to the component being processed. Though the visual appeal of a shot peening machine is very similar to a conventional ‘blast cleaning’ machine, the process is quite different. Shot peening is all about controlling the process of blasting. Shot peening is driven, protected and monitored by audits and specifications. Conformance to such audits and specifications is the only way one can achieve repeatable, accurate and consistent peening results. Empire offers a variety of platforms to meet any customer’s part configurations and specifications.
Empire has paved the way for specialized testing using automated systems with advanced robotics and precision controls for uniform media dispersal. Once more, our Product Support Managers have tested parts for a wide variety of industries. These applications include surface preparation, non-destructive cleaning, controlled stripping, and coating removal.
To compete in a hyper competitive global finishing market the use of robotics in air-blasting is quickly becoming the preferred method to reduce costs, increase productivity and improve product quality. Our experience has enabled Empire to design robotic blasting systems that meet the needs of today’s most demanding applications.
Robotic Blasting is becoming more and more prevalent in the manufacturing process. Companies are looking to increase efficiencies and lower costs. With robotic blasting equipment in place, the operation can run in a continuous mode. Operators are able to run multiple machines and become more efficient.
