Preparing surfaces of extra-large components can be a daunting task. However, with Guyson’s custom-engineered 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting systems, it’s made easier, safer, and more precise. These systems can be tailored to suit even the largest components. In this article, we will discuss the features, advantages, and applications of Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting systems, including isolation of the robot from abrasive atmosphere, media reclamation, and pressure-blast media delivery systems. These systems can be customized for various industrial applications, from wind turbines to aircraft structural parts.
Features of Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting systems.
The 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system is designed with interchangeable fixtures, including manual and crane loading options, and contour-following blast nozzles. This design allows for high precision, as nozzles can follow the contours of the targeted area precisely, no matter how challenging the shape or size. This means that even the most complex components can be blasted to exacting standards. To ensure even more precision, the system has stored process recipes and motion programs in the PLC, which can be fine-tuned to specific applications. The system comes with scanning technology to guarantee positive identification, which ensures accuracy and eliminates the risk of human error.
The remote loading platform that is able to load and unload extra large components into and from the cabinet. There is also a side door which can be fabricated to allow long thin components such as piping or beams to be precision blasted.
Isolation of the robot from abrasive atmosphere.
Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system is designed with a tailored blast suit, which isolates the robot from the abrasive atmosphere. The suit is made of tough laminated fabric and engineered polymer materials, which are resistant to the harsh abrasive environment. This isolation ensures the longevity of the robots since they are not exposed to abrasive environments, hence reducing the likelihood of damage or wear and tear. It also ensures consistency in the quality of the media being used in the blasting system.
Media reclamation and pressure-blast media delivery systems.
Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system features electronic sensing, control options, and tailored media reclamation systems specifically designed to meet the requirements of different applications. These systems reclaim media, making it possible to reuse it, which is cost-effective and eco-friendly. They also feature pressure-blast media delivery systems that are customized to various applications, allowing for continual blasting without delay.
Advantages of Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting systems.
A robot attached to a rail system is a precise way to blast an extremely large parts. It allows the robot to extend well beyond the range of the robots articulated arm. The robot on rail systems allows the robot to maintain its accuracy while tripling the distance it can cover.
The precision provided by this system ensures consistency in quality and reduced human error, leading to increased efficiency. This system is also cost-effective because of the media reclaiming and tailored delivery system, which reduces the cost of media and lowers the cost of maintenance. Additionally, the isolation of the robot from abrasive environments results in fewer incidents of wear and tear. Finally, it is safer, reducing the risk of worker injury, which provides a safer and healthier environment for employees.
Applications of Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting systems.
Guyson’s 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system can be customized for the needs of various industrial applications such as aircraft structural parts, transportation, and heavy machinery. It is not limited to these applications, as it can also be used in many others such as wind turbines, oil, and gas, and other large part manufacturing.
Guyson’s custom-engineered 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system for extra-large components provides numerous advantages, including increased precision, cost-effectiveness, and reduced risk of worker injury. The system is designed with interchangeable fixtures, process recipes, and motion programs stored in PLC, tailored media reclamation and pressure-blast media delivery systems. These systems can be used in various industrial applications, making them versatile. Guyson’s blasting systems are vital in ensuring the longevity and quality of the surface preparation process. Looking ahead, we expect Guyson to continue to innovate its 6-axis robot-on-rail blasting system to meet the new and complex needs of the industry.
