Custom Designed Robotic Cell for Shot Blasting
Designed Robotic Cell for Shot Blasting
A local client approached MJ Engineering to design and
install a custom robot cell for the purpose of automatically handling small
parts for the purpose of shot blasting one surface in a blast cabinet.
The cell incorporates a circular pallet conveyor and a blast cabinet. The shot material and shot process can be modified to allow for different part finish specifications.
The robot uses a custom designed magnetic EOAT (End of Arm Tool) to pick
multiple parts from a pallet and present them into a blast cabinet for
finishing. The operator loads one of 12 pallets with a tray of un-finished
parts then selects the specific processing program from the touch screen
The pallets automatically index into and out of the cell as they are
processed by the robot and the blast cabinets.
