Process: Shot Blasting


Shot blasting is commonly used to achieve a smooth finish on a rough surface. This is done by firing pellets against the rough surface under high pressure. This removes the roughness, resulting a smooth, even finish. Wheelblasting - a type of shot blasting - uses a wheel to drive the pellets against the surface, whereas airblasting uses compressed air. Shot blasting is used across most industries, as it is an extremely popular way of shaping, cleaning and strengthening metal components. Sectors that utilise shot blasting include - but are not limited to - marine, aerospace, construction and automotive.

    Finishing-Shot Blasting

    This manufacturer of guardrails is in the first phase of developing a rail that is destined for use aboard ships. Due to delivery delays from the current supplier, they are now keen to hear from Qimtek members who can undertake the required shot blasting and powder-coating of these free-issued parts. There is an immediate order to place, with a further 1200 off units required throughout the duration of the project.
