Vapor Honing

Wet Blasting Equipment & Vapor Blasting Services

Vapor Honing Technologies
Blast & Wash Systems has partnered with Vapor Honing Technologies & Force Automation to deliver the next great thing in advanced robotic wet blasting.
No matter the size or weight of a part, we can customize a system to meet your needs, whether it be a single or multi part process. With a fine-tuned combination of abrasive media and robotic accuracy, we can greatly increase throughput and eliminate defective parts.

What is Vapor Honing?

  • Combining water and abrasive together forms a slurry which is propelled at the part surface using compressed air.
  • Abrasive selection is made based on desired surface roughness or aesthetical finish.

How is it different?

  • Cleans by flow not impact
  • Can blast with the finest abrasives (1200 Mesh)
  • Dust Free
  • Chemical Free
  • Blast and de grease in one simple step

LTS-5 Robotic Cell

LTS-5 –  lean footprint for small and medium sized parts. This system is designed to be configured for many manufacturing processes including wet blasting , machine tending, inspection, grinding, assembly and much more.

LTS-5 can be placed closer to other equipment since it uses sliding doors instead of hinged doors. It is a turnkey cell that can be reconfigured as your process changes.

STARTING PRICE: $197,000

Standard Process Equipment:

  • 3HP motor with  up to 3600 RPM. This unit can be used for material removal or final polishing.
  • Stationary compliant spindle, reversible, wide range of digitally controlled speeds, can be fitted with wide range of abrasive media and cutting mills. Equipped with CNC grade automatic tool changer.
  • Inspection options include optical vision systems and laser profiling using Cognex, Keyence or ABB.
  • Multiple tool station that can store different grippers to handle a large variety of parts.
  • Single or multiple part load and unload stations.
  • Easily configurable dust collection grid.
  • Force Torque Sensor Active Compliance option can be added to the robot arm for consistent process control and media wear compensation.

LTS-7 Robotic Cell

LTS-7 – medium size footprint that can accommodate both small and medium sized parts. This system  is designed to be configured for many manufacturing processes including wet blasting, machine tending, inspection, grinding, assembly and much more. It was developed to be user-friendly for both operator and programmer.  Because the LTS-7 has sliding doors rather than hinged doors, it can be placed closed to other equipment, thus saving valuable floor space.

It is a turnkey cell that can be reconfigured as your process changes.

STARTING PRICE: $249,000

Standard Process Equipment:

  • 3HP belt system, up to 3600 RPM, belt width ¼” to 2”, built in compliance, can be used for material removal or final polishing.
  • Stationary compliant spindle, reversible, wide range of digitally controlled speeds, can be fitted with wide range of deburring media and cutting mills. Equipped with CNC grade automatic tool changer.
  • Inspection options include optical vision systems and laser profiling using Cognex, Keyence or ABB.
  • Multiple tool station that can store different grippers to handle a large variety of parts.
  • Single or multiple part load and unload stations.
  • Easily configurable dust collection grid
  • Conveyor system option can be easily added for fast flow of parts in a high production environment.
  • Force Torque Sensor Active Compliance option can be added to robot arm for consistent process control and media wear verification.
