How to choose the suitable way to clean the workpiece surface easily? If you do not have any ideas, please let QGMA machinery give you the unmatched quality sandblasting room at an affordable price.
In the beginning, there is a question that what is sandblasting？
Sandblasting is a method that can change the metal surface and remove the substance from the metal surface. This process is accomplished by using quality equipment such as air guns and spinning paddles. According to the needs to provide different shot blasting services. The steel shot can be made from a variety of materials, such as sand, silicon carbide particles, or steel balls.
It is usually used to clean metal surface. This unique program is also used to change the texture or surface coating of the metal for decorative purposes to improve its appearance. There are two different techniques to perform the sandblasting function. Sandblasting is a process done with different types of high quality abrasives. By using the abrasive can remove excess material from the surface.
Sandblasting is a special surface treatment program that is widely used in a variety of different industries with a large number of targets. It is the process of accelerating the grinding medium through a nozzle with the help of compressed air. The abrasives used vary according to the surface treatment required. Several common abrasives used by experienced experts in this process include:
- Steel shot
- Steel grit
- Glass bead
- Crushed glass
- Aluminum oxide
- Silicon carbide
- Walnut shell
- Corn cob
- Baking soda
- Ceramic grit
- Copper slag
Before starting sandblasting, it is necessary to select the best media for performing the procedure. It is the most important decision in the business of abrasive blasting procedures. The different media types have different rigidity, thickness, and shape, as well as each, is obtainable in a broad range of particle sizes. Most of the time it is also essential for sample processing to take place to lock in the final media type and size as well. The equipment utilized to perform the sandblasting procedure varies through industry; there are hand cabinets, dedicated automatic high production models, and completely robotic systems with closed loop process controls.
The range of uses for abrasive grit blasting is very broad and includes:
- This process is performed for surface preparation prior to painting, bonding, or other coating operations.
- It is highly used for removing rust, scale, sand, or paint from the fabricated components.
- This process is used in preparation for thermal spray coating for roughening industrial gas turbine engine component surfaces.
- Used for removing burrs or edge profiling machines components.
- Giving a matte cosmetic surface finish on consumer products.
- This process is carried out for removing mold flash from plastic components.
This is an important procedure that is utilized not only to remove rust but to prepare surfaces for high performance coatings as well as to treat final products to give them the luster and surface texture desired by the prospective consumer.
