NORBLAST S.R.L.: Shot-peening falls in the category of “special processes” that are not verifiable ex post. Therefore, the only way to control the process is to be sure that the operational settings constantly remain within strict tolerances throughout the treatment. The compressed-air systems are universally held to provide the best possible quality. In this case, an anthropomorphic robot managing the shot-peening lance and two additional axes interpolated for the movement of the tables/blades carrying satellites make it possible to perform the shot peening in the best possible conditions. Appropriate instruments are able to manage the size of the grit and the flow rates, while a PLC enables proper management of all operating parameters, keeping them within the expected ranges during the entire duration of the processing. ENERGY SOLUTIONS AND CONSULTING Our collaboration with customers in the energy industry is centred around the very high technology levels and complex requirements of this industry. In-depth understanding of processes, our in-house research centre and a dedication to offering solutions tailored to customer needs make us – first and foremost – a real strategic partner. OUR ANSWER Our machines are designed and manufactured to meet the high quality demand of the industry with the utmost performance and offer total process control for guaranteed results, whether the job at hand is creating the correct surface roughness to ensure the adhesion of different coatings or improving the mechanical fatigue strength of components. Obviously enough, we also take care of all processes involved in such critical activities as component servicing in the industry. Our engineering and our operators work side by side with our customers to design totally customised machines and implement processes specifically designed and developed for the actual application.
