Applications for dry and wet / vapour blasting machines

To understand what dry and wet / vapour blasting is please see our blog: Blast Surface Preparation and Finishing – What Is It And Why Should We Consider Using It?

Introduction

Blast finishing and surface preparation are very widely accepted processes within manufacturing and service industries. Each application has its own unique reason for and why a specific treatment is required, level of performance and economic justification. Applications range from the most delicate to the most arduous and exist in almost all manufacturing industries.

It Aint What You Do … It’s The Way That You Do It!

process sheetWhenever you are operating any kind of a mass finishing, surface preparation, shot blasting or shot peening machine the only way you can achieve a consistent result is by operating the machine and process the same way each time. Sounds obvious, and yet too often we find people operating machines that don’t have a process sheet or standard operating procedure!  Instead processes are run on the basis that the people using them are ‘in the know’; that is at least until something goes disastrously amiss!  Please don’t let me send the message though; it isn’t that it can’t be done with a skilled, knowledgeable and (expert) experienced operator … it can.  The question is though, what happens when they don’t come in for work (sickness / holidays, etc…) or worse still when that person leaves and/or moves on?  Invariably that expert knowledge goes missing too!
