Blast finishing services are ideal when you have components that you need cleaned, deburred, deflashed, descaled or to increase surface texture for adhesion. Eaglemaster’s blast finishing services cover a multitude of processes ranging from glass bead blasting to shot blasting, grit blasting, plastic bead blasting, ceramic bead blasting and more.
Eaglemaster will help you choose the right sandblasting services. Our Minneapolis team can engineer a process that works whether your project is high volume or low volume. Jobs can be processed in batches or individually depending on the required finish. Whether it is a glass bead blast, shot blast or a steel grit blast, we can engineer a solution for your blasting needs.
The materials and machines used in blast finishing vary greatly depending on the material being blasted and the desired results. For example, glass beads are a common type of blasting media that comes in many sizes. Glass bead blasting tends to leave a satin-like finish that skews towards a white metal finish subject to the material being blasted. Grit blasting, which also comes in many sizes and materials, is used for more aggressive applications where cleaning is more difficult, such as removing heavy mill scale or cleaning paint. Grit blasting is also used to add texture to material to increase adhesion of paint or other coatings.
Parts can be processed in batches or individually depending on the application and handling factors. Eaglemaster has a wide variety of blasting equipment ranging from batch blasting applications that run small, medium and large volumes of parts to precision blasting equipment that handles small volumes of parts and single pieces at a time to ensure quality.
