Perfect Paint Preparation of Agricultural Equipment Components
The shot blast machine for the continuous blast-cleaning of welding assemblies is integrated into the overall manufacturing line. Manual touchup blasting of particularly complex surface areas can be done in a blast room located behind the outlet chamber of the shot blast machine. The thrown blast media from the blast room is transferred to the media cleaning system of the shot blast machine.
The 12 Gamma 400G turbines are arranged in a circle around the blast chamber. Because of the curved design of the throwing blades, the shot blast process is particularly productive and energy-efficient. The turbine RPM is controlled by frequency inverters. The variable turbine speed and the automatic control of the media flow allows the precise adaptation of the blast-cleaning process to the different welding assemblies, which ensures optimal paint adhesion and prevents warping of thin-walled components.
For over 80 years, the privately owned Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH has been actively engaged in the field of surface preparation and surface finishing. As a leader in the global market, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of equipment, consumables and services around the mass finishing and shot blasting technologies for a wide spectrum of different industries. Our range of about 15,000 consumables, developed in our Customer Experience Centers and laboratories located all over the world, specifically serves our customers in resolving their individual finishing needs. Under the brand name AM Solutions, we offer numerous equipment solutions and services in the area of additive manufacturing/3D printing. Last-but-not-least, as our central training center, the Rösler Academy offers practical and hands-on seminars to the subjects mass finishing and shot blasting, lean management and additive manufacturing. In addition to the German manufacturing locations in Untermerzbach/Memmelsdorf and Bad Staffelstein/Hausen, the Rösler group has a global network of 15 locations and 150 sales agents.
Agricultural equipment is constantly exposed to tough climate and weather. For this reason, the optimal paint preparation is essential for the equipment to hold up under such tough conditions. A custom-engineered continuous feed spinner hanger blast machine RHBD-K 22/27-HD, installed in a new factory of a globally active manufacturer, is making a significant contribution to this goal. The shot blast machine is integrated into a fully automated manufacturing line, allowing the blast-cleaning of a variety of complex weldments which weigh up to two tons, prior to painting.
