RBT36-F Robotic Blasting Cell

  • Advanced Automation
  • High-Efficiency Blast and Reclaim
  • Intelligent Blasting, Smartly Priced

Empire's new RBT36-F robotic pressure-blast system opens the door for many firms to cash in on the benefits of high precision air blasting. Capable of processing parts up to 12 inches in diameter by 12 inches tall, the RBT36-F employs a Fanuc 6-axis robot to control nozzle movement plus a DC or Servo drive to control part movement, enabling users to assure the quality control and deliver the process validation so often required by today's aerospace, automotive and medical-equipment sectors.

Our batch processing systems, which include both continuous and indexing turntable machines, are ideal for parts requiring long blast cycles. In the typical work scenario, the operator loads work pieces onto the turntable, sets the timer, starts the machine and returns when the cycle is completed. By adding a blowoff manifold and timer, which automatically remove residual material from the part and turntable, the operator is freed from the often dusty task of manual blow-off.

Empire's PF-4848-RS with a 36-inch turntable, our PF-6060-RS with a 48-inch turntable and the PF- 7272-RS with a 60-inch turntable feature rotating blast guns that assure even coverage. Blast-head and tablerotation speeds are both variable to meet a wide range of production requirements. Rotary blast heads for these machines are available with four, six or nine blast guns.

Packaged blast rooms are available with many options in a variety of enclosure sizes. These enclosures feature #10-gauge wall/ceiling panels and fully welded construction. Package rooms can be installed quickly. They are normally up and running within a day.

  • Consolidate all Systems in One Enclosure
  • Move Easily between Work Areas
  • Hook Up with Only Two Connections

Empire ProFormer™ cabinets put it all together in a single assembly that's easy to move and simple to hook up. These cabinets require only two connections, air and electrical, and include features offered in our high production Pro-Finish® line. Plus, they come in two sizes: the 3642 with interior working dimensions of 36 inches deep by 42 inches wide by 48 inches high and its bigger brother, the 4652, with working space of 46 inches by 52 inches by 48 inches.

JRI's Vertical Door washer is the best solution for cellular washing or a wash bay that is short on space. This door orientation allows for the elimination of the swing out door that might impede on the working area of a cell.

The Vertical door unit can be manufactured in sizes ranging from 25” to 72” and can be made with or without a turntable. Units that are lacking a turntable are good for one piece flow with a high production volume. The washer can be tailored to clean that specific part quickly and efficiently. These unit can house multiple stages to wash, rinse and dry your parts in a small compact footprint.
