The North American aerospace industry, particularly the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul sector, continues to endorse the effectiveness of Wheelabrator® technology for automated airblast peening equipment. This is validated with the recent successful start-up of two custom machines at a leading repair station for turbine engine components. With the growing population of this versatile and sophisticated, yet inexpensive machine, it is important to take note of some salient features that lead to its popularity:

• Rigid cabinet design with door mounted rotary table for positive drive results
• Three axis nozzle manipulator with interpolated movement of all axes to permit following complex part contours
• Highly repeatable and accurate component design
• Integral media reclaim and recovery system complete with classifier
• User-friendly operator interface that permits easy ‘teach’ capabilities without the need for knowledge of programming protocols
• Machine design to conform to commonly applied OEM specifications
• Factory tested with blast media to ensure quick installation and start-up

Above machine platform can be easily adapted for various other applications such as etching, cleaning, de-burring, etc. Wheelabrator technologies offer continued leadership in wheelblast and automated airblast solutions.
