Progressive Installs Robotic Wet Blasting System in Europe



Progressive recently installed a precision wet blast machine for a major European aero-engine facility. This robotic system can clean, degrease and etch turbine engine components up to 40 inches (1 m) diameter by 36 inches (0.9 m) tall. The system utilizes our proven 4-axis gantry to manipulate the blast nozzle, and is controlled with a Siemens CNC and our PRIMS graphical user interface system.

Most wet blast systems are manual operations, however this robotic wet blast system with closed-loop air pressure control enables consistent and repeatable processing for a wide range of components. Progressive is now able to offer uncompromising quality for both wet blasting and dry blasting applications.
