Blast Cabinet Adjusts in Height

November 14, 2005 - Saratoga Springs, NY - Guyson Corporation has developed a series of height adjustable blast cabinets for manufacturers having multiple users engaged in manual blasting operations. The Model 6-AH is suitable for a wide variety of blast cleaning, finishing and surface preparation tasks.

One of the most common causes of fatigue and discomfort in cabinet blasting is equipment that makes the operator hunch over or stand on tiptoes to use it and to clearly see the work. The cantilevered design of the Model 6-AH and a motorized jackscrew in its rigidly welded frame enables each user to quickly and easily adjust the entire blast enclosure up or down with the turn of a switch.

The interior of the mid-sized Model 6-AH cabinet is 42 inches wide and 30 inches deep, with working height at the rear of the blast chamber of 36 inches (106 cm x 76 cm x 91 cm). A full width front door and slam-shut side door are fitted with vacuum return media catch trays. A second front door is hinged at the top to allow full access for loading awkward components or heavy objects that might require a crane or hoist. The heavy base of the cabinet has fork lift channels to facilitate relocation.

The blast machine designer and manufacturer offers several armhole and glove options, including extra large openings and padded arm rests. The standard incandescent cabinet lighting can be upgraded to a front mounted fluorescent lamp that brilliantly illuminates the blasting chamber. A multi-adjustable mounting bracket for the blast gun is standard, so the operator can choose two-handed manipulation of small components or hold the gun.

Optionally available for the Model 6-AH is a removable 24 inch diameter Lazy Susan turntable that enables safe and convenient blasting access when working with heavy components. For harsh grit blasting operations, the cabinet can be supplied with the interior walls, doors and turntable fully lined with rubber, the tempered safety glass view window is protected by a square-cut inner abrasion window gasketed in a quick-change frame. The Model 6-AH is available as a suction-blast system or with direct pressure media delivery.

Prospective users of the Model 6-AH blast cabinet are encouraged to submit sample components for free laboratory testing and application engineering evaluation at the machine builder's factory in northeastern New York State.
