In our guide, we explain how shot blast plants work and their applications, the various blasting techniques and their differences.

Our focus is on the wheel blast method. We go into the technical aspects of the blasting process, explain the selection of suitable abrasives and present different types of machines. Our aim is to give you an understanding of the technical details of shot blast plants. 

We also provide practical tips for the various types of surface treatment.


Basics of blasting technology - compressed air blasting, sand blasting and wheel blasting

Deburring metal: What methods are there?

There are some things you would rather avoid in life - but you can't. For metalworkers, burrs are one of them. In this article, you can find out what these unpleasant shapes are and how to remove them.


Removing rust: effective household remedies and industrial solutions

Where there is iron, there will soon be rust: the oxygen in the air reacts with the metal wherever possible. But rust must not be allowed to remain, there are several reasons to remove it. You can find out how to do this in this article.


Descaling: Removing scale and burn-off from steel

Hot and hotter: Temperatures of well over 1,000 °C are reached during steel production. And the steel is also heated during certain further processing methods such as hot rolling, forging or heat treatment. This is not without consequences for the material - scale is formed.

Casting fettling: Procedure & methods of machining

In this article, you will read which processing steps are summarised under the term "fettling". You will learn about the importance and application of blasting technology in this context.


Blasting media additives: Blasting & degreasing metal

What is it? The innovative PantaTec process removes grease and oil from metal directly during blasting in blasting systems. Find out how this works in this article

Surface treatment of metal: Polishing & matting metal

When a workpiece made of stainless steel or another metal is cast, forged or formed, it is still in its raw state. In order for it to fulfil its final purpose, further processing is necessary.


Roughening metal: Meaning, measurement and applications
