Horizontal Belt Machines
Mesh Belt Machines are widely used in forges, iron and steel foundries and aluminium foundries for parts that need to be cleaned, but are too large or too sensitive for the Tumblast process. These machines can be easily integrated into an automatic transport system and process large quantities of parts quickly. Wheels from above and below clean the parts as they pass through the machine, meaning the mesh belt itself is a wear part. Wheelabrator therefore only uses very high wear resistant belts made of manganese steel.
Inclined Belt Conveyor (IBC) Machines are used for desanding and descaling of rotation-symmetric iron and steel components, for desanding and deburring of light metal parts or for shot peening of disk or drum shaped workpieces.
In shot blast systems with an endless belt conveyor, rotation-symmetric shock- and vibration-sensitive parts (brake drums, brake disks, wheel rims, etc.) are blast-cleaned in a continuous flow, in a reliable and cost-effective process. The workpieces are individually transported on a belt conveyor and rest on lateral guide skids. Belt drive and frictional drag on the guide skids cause a continuous and adjustable rotation of the parts. All surfaces of the parts and ventilation ducts are selectively blast cleaned.
Inclined Belt Machine
Castings such as brake discs, brake
drums and wheel rims need to comply
with stringent quality standards, making
them vulnerable to shock and impact
in the surface preparation process. The
Wheelabrator Inclined belt machine ensures
shock-free transport while effectively
exposing all surfaces to the blast stream,
this reduces the cost per part by eliminating
damage and waste, at the same time as
improving the quality of the finish. Click here for more information.
