Clemco Blasting Cabinet with Jib Crane and Smart Tech Enhances Airplane Maintenance

This customer blasts large airplane turbine engine components but has difficulty loading and unloading parts in their tight footprint. Clemco specifically tailored this 5’x5’ cabinet for blasting in this application. …


As the mounted jib crane and hoist efficiently load parts onto a swing-arm turntable. The low-pressure capable blast machine accommodates various tasks such as cleaning and coating stripping, easing the burden of diverse job requirements. Smart elements like blast pot level sensors and media screening minimize downtime by ensuring optimal blasting conditions. The advanced dust collection system not only extends maintenance intervals with a 55-gallon waste drum but also streamlines operations through automated pulse controls and closed-loop airflow regulation. These customer-centric features alleviate operational challenges, making the cabinet a solution that precisely addressed these unique pains.

Abrasive blasting (formerly known as sandblasting) also is called grit blasting, bead blasting, media blasting, soda blasting, dry blasting, sponge blasting, shot blasting, and shot peening. However, sand should never be used when abrasive blasting because breathing abrasive containing crystalline (free) silica can lead to serious or fatal lung disease.
