Against the backdrop of lively debates about the best industrial locations, innovative and efficient production technology is of key importance. In countries where labor costs are high, efficiency and flexibility are crucial considerations when making equipment investment decisions. This is why Rösler is focusing on new ideas in the fields of production modernization and efficiency.

The featured shot blasting exhibit at GIFA is a system that will be very interesting to members of the foundry industry: the RMBC 8.2 tumble belt batch system, targeted for foundries and forge shops.

Robust, process-safe and effective: the RMBC 8.2 was designed for foundries and forge shops
In foundries and forge shops, shot blast systems endure extremely heavy workloads. In order to meet the required performance demands, Rösler has developed the RMBC 8.2 tumble belt batch system. This large shot blast system can descale forged parts weighing up to 200 kg in batches of up to 800 components (max. batch weight 2000 kg), causing it to stand out due to its robustness and high processing intensity. A manganese steel lining helps protect the inside of the heavy-duty blast chamber against wear and tear. In addition, a special steel plate conveyor is used to transport the components. This system includes two high-powered blast wheels-from 22 kW up to 45 kW each, depending on the processing intensity required. When designing the system, Rösler's engineers focused on making it both user-friendly and maintenance-friendly, by installing an automatic control system, and ensuring that inspections and maintenance work can be carried out without incurring unnecessary down time. The RMBC 8.2 can be operated as a stand-alone system or, when combined with an automatic loading device, integrated into automated production systems.

Roboblaster RROB with double gripper

'Time to market' is the slogan which is driving activities in the automobile industry. In order to accelerate the time to market, many manufacturers resort to continuous streamlining of their manufacturing processes, thus reducing the time required to bring new products to the marketplace.  Increasingly, outsourced divisions are being retransferred. A automobile manufacturer reintegrated shot blasting of transmission housings back into the company after the material they are constructed of was changed from aluminium to magnesium die castings. This automobile manufacturer asked Rösler Oberflächentechnik to develop a highly efficient processing system for deburring and surface finishing the casings and internal surfaces of transmission housings. Rösler developed a custom-built RROB 800/1200-6 Roboblaster which was designed with a special emphasis on cost-effectiveness and quality.

To achieve the required cycle time of 26 seconds per component, the robot is equipped with a double gripper which can accommodate two components at the same time. The robot places the transmission housings in the blast chamber, and then rotates them. This rotation causes the patented interlocking seal on the gripper's collar to immediately and securely seal the blast chamber. In the shot blast chamber, the housings are shot blasted for 20 seconds by six high-performance blast wheels, of which, two are mounted on to the back wall of the chamber to guarantee that the inside area is shot blasted thoroughly. A system especially developed for the Roboblaster subsequently removes the shot blast media from the components.
