Empire offers two distinct approaches to achieve the best finishing solution for each robotic application. The first approach is a pre-engineered blasting system. These systems have two types of design layouts starting with two forms of pedestal-mounted robot machines and an inverted robot machine. Most applications fit these machines with the ability to process parts up to 2ft dia. x 2ft high. In each solution the robot is manipulating the blast nozzle. Each design includes a dc motor-driven 7th axis that can be upgraded to a servo-driven axis which provides the operator with infinite flexibly and more precision.
