<font face="Arial, Helvetivca" size="2">The jury was especially impressed by the thoroughness the engineers applied to the development. Freeing the cylinder head blocks from sandy deposits is done equally thoroughly at the truck manufacturer – with a semi-automatic shot blast system by Rösler.<br></font>

<font face="Arial, Helvetivca" size="2">To save manpower and manufacture such that reproduction is possible – right now these are two of the most common demands with regard to cost-effective production. In order to meet</font>

<font face="Arial, Helvetivca" size="2">these requirements in the field of removing residues from the inside of sand cast components (in this case cylinder head blocks of 4 and 6-cylinders) MAN will, in future, replace the manual shot blast process with a semi-automatic procedure in its factory in Nuremberg. Rösler Oberflächentechnik was asked to design a shot blast system which shot blasts the components mentioned with a mass of 25 to 80 kg.</font>

<font face="Arial, Helvetivca" size="2">Apart from effective cost savings due to the fact that less personnel is needed, this individual solution offers an eight-times higher component throughput rate.</font> 

<font face="Arial, Helvetivca" size="2">As an all-round supplier, Rösler GmbH is an international market leader in the production of surface finishing, shot blasting machines, painting systems and preservation lines&nbsp; as well as process technology for the rational surface finishing of metals and other components.
