This newly developed engine block shot blast system RMBS 1-842 is used for blast cleaning and descaling of all engine block versions after the fettling operation weighing between 1,000 kg and 5,000 kg. To allow a fully automatic operation up to 99 different shot blast programs can be stored in the main control panel.
The RMBS is equipped with eight high performance blast turbines, type EVO 38, mounted on the roof of the blast chamber, Each of these turbines, with a wheel disk diameter of 40 cm and an installed drive power of 30 kW each, can throw up to 350 kg of blast media per min.
Highlight of the Rösler shot blast system is the specially designed manipulator with two built-in grippers allowing the treatment of one large or two smaller engine blocks. As soon as the blast chamber is closed, the gripper precisely rotates the engine block(s) under the blast stream. The manipulator also allows an oscillating gripper movement which is especially important for processing of smaller components.
