Out with the old and in with the new…when is it time to purchase a new machine?

When is it more cost effective to stop making repairs and start looking at purchasing a new system?  Here are a few of the major areas that customers should be looking at:

  • If the bottom lip of the cabinet where the door seals is no longer making a complete seal and the doors can no longer shut.
  • If the doors do not shut properly customers can potentially have a fall hazard on their hands from media leaking out of the system, this will have a direct effect on media costs. Customers will start spending more money on media.
  • When the integrity of the internal brackets designed to hold the hanging wall armor are no longer functional.
  • Improper upkeep of the blastwheel blades and blastwheel armor, this will have a direct effect on your blastwheel itself. Additionally, replacing the blades will maintain the correct balance of the wheel and ensure consistent media coverage.
  • If the internal neoprene/retaining straps of the cabinet are wearing. This neoprene is designed to deflect the abrasive from hitting the cabinet walls. Once this lining starts wearing in certain areas it will need to be replaced.  Not replacing it when wear points are noticed will allow media particles to seep into the cracks and ultimately the media will start to eat away at the cabinet walls.
