Straaltechniek UK Ltd refurbishment of old shot blaster tumbler to look as good as new
Straaltechniek Ltd has many years experience within the surface preparation industry both in the manufacture and design of New Centrifugal wheel, air blasting, shot peening and dust extraction machines. As well as new blast machines they can offer all aspects of equipment modernisation to improve the efficiency of existing blast equipment supplied to many industries worldwide.
For many years Straaltechniek UK Ltd have been providing customers with surface preparation services including machine maintenance, spare parts, servicing, and equipment modernisation throughout the UK and have recently refurbished one an old, and tired looking 50ltr Tumble Shot Blast machines for one of their customers.
The rubber belt Tumblast machine, has served it’s purpose as an integral part of a surface preparation process, shot blasting components in batches ready to move onto the next required treatment process.
As these types of machines age they become more difficult to maintain as they are constantly blasting throughout shifts turning over batch after batch of components and so the customer contacted Straaltechniek UK for a quotation to refurbish their machine.
Straaltechniek UK offered to do a full inspection by their experienced engineers and a quotation followed which was accepted and an order was placed.
The Shot Blast machine was de-commissioned and carefully dismantled at customer premises and returned to Straaltechniek UK’s workshop in Sheffield, South Yorkshire where it was completely stripped down and refurbished ready for testing which was completed prior to being given a new paint job to look as good as new.
The machine has since been delivered, installed in a new location on site at the customer’s request, recommissioned and is back in full production doing what it does best.
James Lees, UK Sales Manager at Straaltechniek UK said;
“This is one of many projects we have worked on for our customers this year and it is always great to see an old machine restored to its former glory”.
