Pangborn RotoDrum Blast Machine

Pangborn’s RotoDrum Blast Machines are durable rotating drum machines with versatile drum design to allow efficient tumbling of work pieces with no pinch points, catch points, or sharp edges.

Pangborn’s RotoDrum Blasting Machines are the heaviest and most durable rotating drum machines available. Versatile, solid manganese drums allow efficient tumbling of work pieces with no pinch points. The solid welded drum is manufactured with up to ¾” (19 mm) thick manganese steel (zero catch points, no sharp edges to nick or damage work pieces).

The loading is carried out via the loading bucket feeder. The capacity of the feeder corresponds to that of the blasting machine. To prevent the discharge or loss of blasting abrasives, the loading duct is equipped with a rubber pendulum seal.

The machine blasts the work pieces in the drum with a single blast wheel positioned on the loading door. The bottom of the drum is designed to ensure that rotation of the batch is in both longitudinal and radial directions. When loading the work pieces into the drum, the loading door is opened upwards. When unloading the work pieces, the drum is opened downwards so parts empty onto a vibration conveyor chute.

Superior design, quality, and rugged construction make the Pangborn RotoDrum Blast Machines extremely reliable and easy to maintain. Pangborn’s RotoDrum Blast Machines are cost-effective and space-saving rotating drum systems. Versatile, solid manganese drums allow efficient tumbling of work pieces with no pinch points.
