Empire provides industry with high quality, dependable blast room equipment

Blast room equipment is used in a wide variety of industries that require surface preparation prior to the application of a protective coating. The surface of the work piece is cleaned by a mixture of abrasive and high pressure compressed air being directed at the work piece by a blast operator. The operator holds a venturi nozzle tipped hose in his hands and controls the abrasive/air mixtyre generated at the blast machine with an "on the hose" operator switch.
 

At Empire we begin with building the finest blast and recovery systems and integrate robots to them. Since 1987 Empire Abrasive Equipment has successfully integrated commercially available robots into a variety of pre-engineered robotic blast cells, customized robotic blast systems and robotic blast rooms. Our goal is to consistently deliver customers with robot blasting technologies that enable efficient, quiet and clean robotic blasting solutions for surface preparation and peening applications.

Empire offers turntable and in-line machines for continuous processing. These systems can be loaded and unloaded manually, equipped with robotic arms or designed as an integral part of the production line.

Our continuous turntable machines come in four standard models with table diameters ranging from 36 inches up to 108 inches. Larger units are available with two rotary blast heads. The heads can be oriented to perform separate functions, such as blasting the interior and exterior of parts at the same time. Standard features include a rubber cabinet lining and a urethane coating on the turntable for extended service life.

If your operations involve cleaning with chemicals, acid etching or dipping, liquid honing, wire brushing, sanding, deburring, grinding or peening, moving up to a Pro-Finish® cabinet will normally expedite work, improve quality and eliminate the environmental problems associated with chemical finishing.
