Custom 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 operator panel. 

 The pallets automatically index into and out of the cell as they are processed by the robot        and the blast cabinets.
