Shot Blasting Continuous Blasting Machine for Square Billets

Square billets undergo a surface inspection as part of the quality assurance process. The requirements include a surface which is free of scale and rust. One manufacturer of steel products invested in a new blasting machine with a speed of 90 metres per minute to take its billets from rust grade B to surface quality grade SA 2.

With production sites in Neunkirchen, Burbach and Völklingen in Germany and its partially-owned subsidiary Roheisengesellschaft Saar mbH, Saarstahl AG is one of world’s leading manufacturers of long steel products. Its portfolio includes wire rods, bar stock and semi-finished products of different grades, in addition to open die forgings. These are important intermediate products for the automotive industry and its suppliers, the construction sector, the energy and mechanical engineering industries and the aerospace sector, plus other industries which process steel. Saarstahl guarantees that its steels are of high quality using a variety of test procedures.
