Shot Blasting Tip 9 – Check Your Component Starting Condition Is The Same

 

Sometimes things change … including the starting condition of your component parts to be blasted. Worn tooling, changes in materials or investment in new manufacturing methods can result in you no longer getting the result from your shot blasting machine.

We would typically recommend keeping an original sample part by the machine for reference. Should the starting condition prove to be different often this can be accommodated in the shot blasting process itself by extending the blast time, changes in wheel speed or applying a different abrasive.

Should the change be dramatic, the shot blasting process will need to be re-evaluated. It may be that a different abrasive or loading / fixturing method will be necessary – and we’d be delighted to help make a recommendation using our process development service.
