Comco Puts a New Spin on Micro-Abrasive Blasting for Medical Device Manufacturing

Comco Inc. has introduced the SP1200 Micro-Abrading Lathe, which combines the rotation characteristics of a traditional lathe with the latest advances in micro-abrasive blasting technology. The SP1200 is ideally suited for abrading a variety of medical parts that require precision material removal, cleaning, or texturing. Applications include precision finishing and deburring on the ends of intravenous components; texturing, cleaning, and material removal on stents and implantable devices; and surface preparation of miniature polyurethane tubes prior to bonding.

The SFP1200 features a DirectFlo micro-abrasive blaster and a self-contained WorkStation. The innovative system delivers a powerful stream of abrasive in a fully programmable pattern to ensure the high degree of repeatability and control that is essential in semi-automated production environments. Capable of utilizing 'intelligent' tooling; to fit custom applications, the lathe spindle can be programmed to operate in step or indexed motions as well as in continuous rotation. The X Theta controlled nozzle blast position is fully programmable for point blasting, regional texturing, or blasting in a helical path. Comco's Micro-Abrading Lathe is the first automated micro-abrasive blasting machine to use quick-connect interchangeable nozzle arrays, eliminating the need to have separate machines for different applications.

For additional information on the benefits of micro-abrasive blasting, visit or call Comco at 800-796-6626 and request the technical specifications sheet on the SP1200 Micro-Abrading Lathe.
