Viking Blast & Wash Systems has released a newly redesigned tumble belt blast machine. The 6-cu.-ft. model 600 incorporates changes to the loader and discharge belt options that make it more durable in heavy-duty and foundry operations, states the company.
The machine is equipped with a 15-HP VK Powermax blast wheel and a 2-HP bucket elevator abrasive lifting system with airwash separator to clean abrasive before blasting. The drum heads and side liners are manganese alloy. Optional features include a rotary scalping drum for removing debris from blast media, a loader, a take-away belt, and an auxiliary abrasive hopper.
Peening requirements are satisfied with optional variable-speed blast wheel control; an electromagnetic abrasive control valve and classifier; and an optional PLC and touchscreen for preprogrammed, recorded, part-specific recipes.
