Viking Blast & Wash Systems (Rose Hill, KS) announces the specialty line of the MB1806P, a new series for deflashing plastic parts with many unique characteristics. The 4 blast wheels are not throwing steel shot but, rather, a hard plastic media. This throwing technique requires the shot to have an additional solenoid for each blast wheel to reduce the static charge created during this process. This solenoid triggers a mist of an anti-static media to spray across the abrasive and reduce the static build-up. So, control on the wheel speed through VFDs for each wheel and control of the mist is critical. These two processes are controlled by the program running in the PLC. Features include:
- Air blow-off system: Hi-volume air blow-off and air cannons remove carryout abrasive from the work.
- (4) VMAX Blast Wheel with VFD. Allows for control of throwing velocity.
- Anti-static pressurized spraying system.
