Table blast machines are best suited for larger, heavier parts, parts that can’t tumble against each other, or aren’t easily hung. Because parts are individually placed on the table, the parts will not typically make contact with each other during the blast cycle, which minimizes damage from part impingement. This setup does allow for blasting multiple parts during the same blast cycle. Table blast machines are good for general cleaning, profiling, surface preparation, and deflashing or descaling.
Plan B sells new and used table blast machines. Plan B can also rebuild or refurbish existing machines. See an example of a recent table blast project. The most common sizes are 36″, 48″, 60″, 72″, 84″ and 96″ table blast machines. Table blast machine manufacturers include Pangborn, Wheelabrator, Gibson, and Goff.
