Guyson Metalbead and non-destructive mold and die cleaning

The most common machines that utilizes Guyson Metalbead are wheel blast systems. A wheel-blasting system uses a blast wheel to throw media at a substrate on a revolving table. Wheel-blast systems are a great way to clean extrusion dies and molds due to the large amount of media one wheel can throw. On average a Guyson Wheel-blast machines will throw up to 150 lbs. of media a minute per wheel. The media is crucial when it comes to cleaning whatever is in the machine. If you are looking to clean a mold or die in your wheel blast system Guyson recommends Guyson Metalbead.

Guyson Metalbead is a soft spherical iron media that remains round and is far less aggressive that any other convention cleaning medias (Glassbead, Plastics , etc ) When using Metalbead,media consumption can be reduced from the thousands pounds per year in most glassbead installations to less than 250 pounds per year in most Guyson Metalbead installations. Guyson Metalbead is the ultimate media for complex dies and molds because it consists of microscope spheres that can clean in hard to reach areas. Guyson Metalbead is soft so it resists fracture and will leave molds or dies damage free unlike glassbead that has  sharp particles that tend eat away at the substrate .

  • Reduced operating cost in media make-up requirements
  • Reduced equipment maintenance due to less abrasion
