With an off-the-shelf Pro-Finish cabinet, you get a tunable media reclaimer, a dust collection system, your choice of pressure or suction powered blast, and many other standard features. In addition, you can select from a wide range of in-stock factory options to meet your particular finishing requirements. If you need a powered or manual turntable, gun oscillation, additional blast guns, timer packages, special electrical, extended wear components or a vertical door, we can provide this equipment and other options without custom modifications.
Empire has designed and produced hundreds of automated systems, ranging in sophistication from standard automation to advanced robotic nozzle, part manipulation and part handling. Our customers report productivity gains between 100 and 700 percent.
Blast room equipment is used in a wide variety of industries that require surface preparation prior to the application of a protective coating. The surface of the work piece is cleaned by a mixture of abrasive and high pressure compressed air being directed at the work piece by a blast operator. The operator holds a venturi nozzle tipped hose in his hands and controls the abrasive/air mixture generated at the blast machine with an "on the hose" operator switch.
If your application is highly specialized, you can take advantage of the benefits of a Pro-Finish system. We can economically tailor a cabinet to meet your specific needs and reduce lead times over custom engineered purpose-built equipment.
Empire Modified Pro-Finish® Cabinets are re-engineered to meet individual work piece and process requirements.
If you are confronted with a unique application or want to accelerate production rates through partial automation, Empire can meet your needs. Empire has created hundreds of modified cabinets to satisfy focused customer needs in a wide range of industries.
Empire has the deepest portable line-up in the industry.
Empire manufactures a full line of portable blasters, ranging from "do-it-yourself" suction blasters up to our contractor grade SuperBlast® pressure machines, designed to strip structures and large work-pieces at high removal rates. Backed By The Best Warranty In The Industry: Three Years Limited!
The economic advantages of reusable media are enormous. A key feature of a recovery system is the reclaimer's ability to separate unusable dust from good media. This improves visibility in the blasting area and increases the blast effectiveness. The reclaimer may be adjustable so that it works with different types and sizes of media.
We support our portable blasters and blast rooms with a complete line of modern safety equipment that protects operators and complies with OSHA when properly applied and maintained. All devices affecting breathing-air quality should be inspected and serviced regularly, particularly when a multi-purpose compressor is used to supply breathing air.
Empire's new RBT36-F robotic pressure-blast system opens the door for many firms to cash in on the benefits of high precision air blasting. Capable of processing parts up to 12 inches in diameter by 12 inches tall, the RBT36-F employs a Fanuc 6-axis robot to control nozzle movement plus a DC or Servo drive to control part movement, enabling users to assure the quality control and deliver the process validation so often required by today's aerospace, automotive and medical-equipment sectors.
