HOW SHOT BLASTING WORKS
1. Shot blasting uses spherical “shots” to clean a surface. This shot gets accelerated through a throwing wheel. (Our blast cabinet has 4 internal wheels for multi-directional blasting.)
2. Shot blasting doesn’t need a propellant or medium like water to contain the shot. That means you don’t have to wait for it to dry between steps like some other blasting techniques. Your product comes out clean and ready for the next finishing.
3. Depending on the size of shot used, you can get different effects. Small steel balls, for example, produce a smooth, polished surface for coating. On the other hand, large shot can remove burrs or flash left over from casting, stamping, or cutting—often faster than filing. If you know the end product you want, our team can help you select the appropriate shot.
