Media Blasting Station

Media Blaster

The media blasting station is used to bore small, smooth holes in glass substrates, and to deburr machined parts and hot emboss molds.

The AirBrasive Model K blasting unit has independent pressure and flow controls, and is capable of flowing up to 40 grams of media per minute. It is currently loaded with 50 µm aluminum oxide media. An assortment of micro-scale handpiece nozzles are available for use.

The COMCO ProCenter Plus workstation provides a well-lit, clean and safe work environment for working with micromedia. A large HEPA filter is included in the dust collection system, which flows 500 cfm. A blow-off gun is included to clean off parts.
