ASTECH Announces New Longer Life Links for OEM Shot Blast Machines
VASSAR, MICHIGAN - ASTECH Inc., recently introduced longer lasting alloyed links for blast machines to reduce downtime and link cost.
Astech has developed a new chemistry to provide longer lasting links compared to links made by OEMs. Longer lasting links mean less down time spent replacing links as well as reduced replacement costs.
Made of manganese steel - these links will naturally exceed the life of links made from carbon steel, day in and day out. Nothing stands up to the strength durability and wear resistance better than manganese.
Other significant advantages:
o Heat Treated - for toughness and durability
o Bend Test at 45 degrees - will not break the flight attachment
o Links are designed for these blast machines: Wheelabrator and Pangborn.
"Every foundry today is on alert to ensure manufacturing efficiencies are in place at all levels. Providing replacement links that last longer is an easy fix for any foundry. Our expertise as a foundry puts us in an ideal testing environment. We are pleased to bring the very best in blast links to reduce labor and part costs," said Alan Bukach, President, Astech Inc.
