Guyson has perfected the capability of automating turbine blade and turbine vein surface cleaning prior to blade repair with the Guyson RB-10. What was once a primarily manual process has now become automated to the point where the operator can be productive elsewhere during the blasting cycle.
The turbine is fixtured by the root and is blasted with aluminum oxide to etch away any contamination. The Guyson RB-10 has integrated a Single Source Panel with Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC as well as an Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 600 which allows us the
ability to incorporate a recipe driven function
selection which adjusts program parameters to account for low, medium, and high levels of contamination. Guyson’s RB-10 is a very versatile piece of equipment, in instances where there is no fixture point or masking required (i.e. Turbine veins) a simple 3D printed attachment re-grip fixture for end of arm tooling can be utilized to achieve full coverage.
