Possible uses of AGTOS drum blasting systems (type TS)

These are extremely modern machines based on an old, proven principle. Due to many new technical details, the new drum blasting systems from AGTOS are convincing.

This type of system is ideal for processing bulk materials. There are important advantages compared to the widespread troughed belt principle: since the drum is made of one part, transitions from moving to fixed machine parts are avoided. Parts are therefore prevented from being caught. In addition, drums can be emptied completely more easily, which prevents double processing of individual workpieces.

Punched manganese steel is used for wear resistance. The size of the holes depends on the dimensions of the workpieces as well as on the grain size and quantity of the blasting agent flowing off. Structurally sophisticated devices promote the mixing of the parts.

operational process

The operational sequence of drum blasting machines

The workpieces are in a factory-standard container. This is placed in a feeder or emptied directly. The feeder is lifted and gets in front of the machine door, which opens immediately. Arriving at the right height, the feeder swivels and unloads the workpieces into the drum. Depending on the sensitivity of the workpieces, this process can be carried out very carefully. The control can be specified by PLC or done manually. This prevents damage. At this point, the drum is in the loading position. Before the blasting process, the machine door closes and the drum swings into an ideal position in front of the high-performance turbine. At the same time, it rotates around its own axis.

The blasting process begins and lasts until all the workpieces have been thoroughly mixed and blasted all around. The inside of the blasting chamber is lined with materials that are highly resistant to the steel blasting medium. The primary lining in the direct jet area of the high-performance turbines consists of high-strength, replaceable steel plates. During the blasting process, the door remains tightly closed and can only be opened again after the blasting chamber is free of dust. This takes about 10-15 seconds. The dust generated during blasting is sucked off during the blasting process using a slight vacuum and separated in the associated filter system.

After the blasting process, the drum swings into the unloading position. Here, too, the quantity of workpieces and the intensity of the emptying can be defined by means of metered emptying. The blasted workpieces are transported to a sieve conveyor trough, which separates them from the remaining blasting media and transports them to the waiting workpiece collection containers.
