Custom Engineered Wet Blast Systems for Emerging Applications

2020-09-23T13:10:32+00:00May 30th, 2020|Cleaning, Finishing|

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, whether you call it Industry 4.0, or Manufacturing 4.0, is opening doors to higher productivity, smarter workflows, and safer work environments. As we integrate advanced robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), IoT, additive manufacturing (3D printing), and smart energy, why not reinvent the ways in which we approach surface finishing? Wet blast systems have proven to outperform conventional manual, chemical and dry blasting processes, with the ability to combine steps, speed production and eliminate airborne dust and hazardous chemicals. And, [...]
