Our proven platform for automated microblasting
Advanced Lathe integrates micro-abrasive blasting technology with an advanced machining platform. This automated system delivers the accuracy, reliability and throughput to meet the challenges of today’s manufacturing environment.
Built for Abrasive Environments
The characteristics that make an abrasive a suitable choice for MicroBlasting make the protection of automation challenging. Unlike the large, blocky abrasives that are used in traditional sandblast cabinets our media is almost as hard as diamond and as fine as moon dust. Through our engineering expertise we are able to design and manufacture a system tough enough to withstand these harsh environments in a production environment.
Select a program, load your parts, and you’re ready to start blasting. Quickly change between different types of parts. The refined user interface includes a bright, easy-to-read touch screen display.
With up to four axes of motion, Advanced Lathe is capable of handling complex part geometries–and performing multiple operations during the same blast routine.
WORKS WITH ANY BLASTER
Advanced Lathe has been engineered to operate with either the AccuFlo or PowerFlo families of Comco blasters. The AccuFlo model is most commonly used for single nozzle applications. Multiple AccuFlo units or the PowerFlo are recommended for applications requiring multiple nozzles.
AutoFill replenishes the abrasive in your tank automatically so you never have to stop working to refill. AutoFill is an add-on module for the Tall-Tank model AccuFlo.
EXTERNAL INPUT SOURCES
Information and commands can be communicated to the Advanced Lathe from external sources. This can be a bar code reader, a scale, or another piece of automation like a robot.
While not really an accessory the Advanced Lathe can be configured with a multitude of modules to meet the application requirement. We have currently built a system with a traveling tailstock to accommodate parts of varying length, a turntable to rotate parts under the blast head, a serializing blast head for marking cylindrical parts, multiple spindles (1, 2, or 4), and the engineering OD blast head for development work on new applications.
