Increase Consistency and Product On-Time Delivery

Automated Solutions

You and your production team work hard. They understand that throughput, consistency, and downtime all impact the next process on the production line. And you know that decreased throughput from inefficient processes, inconsistent part finishing, and unscheduled downtime hurt the bottom line—and your reputation. Clemco gets this. That’s why when you partner with Clemco, you get an abrasive blasting solution tailored to the level of automation you need. Automation that optimizes your surface preparation, which in turn improves finishes on parts, end-product quality, and on-time delivery.

Optimize your entire production process and see a quick return on your investment—with a Clemco Automated Blasting Solution.

Controls

Your customers expect parts with high-quality finishes—delivered on time. Clemco Automated Controls ensure both by promoting operator ease of use, efficiency, and safety. As a Rockwell Automation OEM Partner, Clemco uses industry-standard integrated controls that provide an intuitive user interface and flexibility, granting the ability to consistently blast multiple different parts, increase your blast system’s uptime, and deliver higher throughput. Maximize your team’s productivity—and exceed your customers’ expectations—with Clemco automated controls:

  • Touchscreen HMI with realistic graphics
  • Automatic airflow adjustment
  • Automated dust filter management
  • Part bar code scanner
  • Recipe system for automated changeover
  • VFD for precision motor control
  • 24V DC standardized safe voltage
  • TUV safety
  • HMI accessed system parameters and settings

Robotics

You have deadlines. Although your team cares, the parts don’t. Parts with high-volume or complex-finish requirements can throw a wrench into the best laid plans. However, adding robotic capability to your blast system ensures consistent and repeatable results on every part—on time. As a FANUC Authorized System Integrator, Clemco delivers the robotic blasting solutions your customers need to meet their exact quality and delivery requirements. Realize a verifiable return on your investment—with Clemco Robotic Blasting Solutions:

  • Precision multi-axis movement
  • Part loading and unloading
  • Blasting and nozzle manipulation
  • Process line integration
  • Motion interface to optimize cycle time, movement path, service life, and power usage
  • Collision guard and detection

Connectivity

Installation, startup, and troubleshooting should be quick and easy. But when they’re not, you have unscheduled downtime that disrupts the entire production process. Clemco Automation Connectivity leverages Internet 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology to ensure high throughput, consistency, ease of use, and maximum uptime. Keep your production line moving and your operations team informed with Clemco Automation Connectivity:

  • Remote-mount control panels and I/O plug and play
  • Transferable cycle reports and data logging
  • Ethernet-connected devices for feedback and control
  • Cellular modem connectivity

Information Management

Information is power. The more you have—and the better it’s organized and delivered—the better your production line runs. From individual operator performance to your blasting operation’s overall productivity, you need information delivered in a timely, practical format. Clemco Automated Information Management provides intuitive, real-time information so that you can proactively schedule preventative maintenance, recognize trends for improvement, and analyze errors for quick diagnosis of blasting operation faults. Clemco Automated Information Management gives you the power of functional knowledge to optimize your surface preparation process:

  • Cycle reports and efficiency statistics
  • Troubleshooting fault codes
  • Blast parameters overview
  • RFID or operator login
  • Sensors for media level, part loading, filter life, system performance, and more

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.
