FAQ - Frequently asked questions
By means of lower pressure and the appropriate media, rust and scale can be removed from workpieces before further processing.
Shot peening or hardening or shot peening is a process that considerably increases the service life of highly used components by blasting the surface in a targeted manner.
Paint stripping and decoating of old steel structures is an important part of the surface preparation for new painting. Depending on the workpiece, the suitable blasting medium and the necessary pressure of the blasting nozzle is selected. . Depending on the workpiece, the suitable blasting media and the necessary pressure of the blasting nozzle are selected.
With sweeping, also known as sweep blasting, the surface of freshly galvanized components is slightly roughened to allow better adhesion of subsequent paint and powder coatings. This is done with the help of mineral media.
The injection process is used when relatively small products are to be blasted and/or high blasting intensity is not desired. It is often used for manual blasting cabins or small blasting machines.
The compressed air process is suitable for larger series products that are to be blasted. The intensity is 4-5 times greater than with the injection method. It can be used for manual blasting rooms as well as for automatic blasting.
Wet blasting is often used when oily products are blasted with a relatively low intensity.
The special feature of dry ice blasting can already be found in its name. The media used here is dry ice. . Frequent areas of application are the cleaning of components.
With the blast wheel process, both larger and smaller parts can be blasted automatically and is therefore ideal for mass production.
Due to the long period of protection that this method provides, it is mainly used in construction and road traffic.
If the blasting process is used to clean the workpieces, the so-called cleaning blasting, the processed surface is evaluated according to the surface cleanliness grades Sa 1, Sa 2, Sa 2.5 and Sa 3 based on DIN EN8501-1.
Especially if a coating is to be applied subsequently from the workpiece, the achieved roughness characteristics (bsw, Rz) are also a decisive measurement parameter.
In shot peening, the Almen values given in mm or less and the compressive strains (Pa) generated indicate the result obtained.
The working platform should not be integrated directly into the cabin? Our mobile scissor lifting work platforms can be used completely individually.
Are you looking for a space-saving working platform, whether in washing or preparation cabins, blasting or zinc spraying rooms or paint spraying systems? Our vertical telescopic lifting work platforms offer you a large, longitudinally and transversely movable platform cage which, in combination with a rotation range of almost 360° and telescopic lift, allows you to work in almost any position in the cabin.
