Wheelabrators Airblast Peening Technology Credited with Start-Up of Two Custom Machines for Turbine Engine Components
February 27, 2007—The Wheelabrator technology for automated airblast peening equipment is credited with the recent start-up of two custom machines at a repair station for engine turbine components.
The machine offers a rigid cabinet design with door-mounted rotary table; three-axis nozzle manipulator with interpolated movement of all axes to permit following complex part contours; integral media reclaim and recovery system with classifier; a user-friendly operator interface that permits "teach" capabilities without the need for knowledge of programming protocols; and machine design conforming to commonly-applied OEM specs.
According to the company's press release, the above machine platform can be adapted for etching, cleaning and deburring applications.
