• Batch Finish Parts up to 24" Long
  • Process 400 Pounds per Cycle
  • Deliver Consistent, On-Spec Results
Empire's Continuous-Belt Air Blasters process multiple parts with the speed and economy of our Basket Blasters while expanding the envelope of tumble blasting from nuts and bolts to heavier work pieces.

Our CB-3.5 machines, available with either pressure or suction blast systems, automate cleaning, peening, deburring, profiling, finishing and many other surface conditioning tasks. Plus, they handle a vast range of parts formed from casting and injection molding, as well as the molds used to produce the parts. Often, no other finishing method can compare to these heavy-duty production machines in terms of speed and quality results.

Operation is simple: Load parts onto a rugged perforated belt, set the precision timer, and the CB-3.5 does the rest. By tumbling parts within multiple abrasive blast streams, these machines deliver consistent results automatically.

Two models are available: a CB-3.5-S suction system and our more aggressive CB-3.5-P pressure unit, normally preferred in shot peening and other high intensity applications. Both machines have a part-load capacity of 400 pounds.

Empire's Continuous-Belt Air Blasters process parts of varying shapes, sizes and weights automatically.

Empire's Continuous-Belt Blasters unload parts with the push of a button. Once processing is complete, the operator opens the door, pushes the "reverse" button and the barrel rotates in the opposite direction to feed work pieces into a post-processing bin.
