Wheel Blast

Delivering Unrivaled Performance

Pangborn provides technologically advanced wheel blast solutions to customers around the globe and across a wide range of industries. Our innovative approach to blasting has resulted in some of the most efficient wheel blast solutions in the industry.

Our flexible designs are achieved by varying the number and placement of blast wheels, as well as incorporating various material handling systems to create a solution that best addresses the customer’s requirements. An optimally designed and high-performing wheel significantly influences the efficiency and operating cost of an entire blast cleaning system.

Pangborn wheel blast machines deliver unrivaled performance due to our unique abrasive distribution across the work surface which results in shorter cleaning times, high volume production, and cost-effective performance.

Shot Peening

Pangborn has a long history of designing and manufacturing the finest peening machines. Our shot peening systems are used to achieve meticulous results for the most technologically advanced equipment in the aerospace industry, the automotive industry, and the military. We supply controlled peening equipment and peen forming systems which are custom built to suit the specific application of each customer.

Our peening systems are used by the world’s leading manufacturers for peening, metal forming, and surface finishing applications. We have solutions for spring peening, gear and shaft peening, and peening wing panels and spars for aerostructures.

Precise And Flexible Control

Air Blast

Our line of air blast equipment helps our customers address applications that demand detailed methods of blasting and cleaning. Air blasting gives the equipment operator precise, yet flexible control of what is being blasted, either through programmable or hand-held blasting nozzles.

When consistency and precision are required, Pangborn’s special table machines are highly customized to treat small parts that demand a detailed and repeatable process. When flexibility around shape and size is required, Pangborn’s air blast rooms are designed to tackle the largest and most demanding of applications.

Customized Equipment For Unique Environments

Specialty Blast

Pangborn is recognized around the world for its technologically advanced wheel blast and air blast solutions. The ability of our standard equipment to be customized allows our customers to configure our products to their specific needs and distinct requirements.

When our customers call on us to create unique blasting and surface preparation solutions, our engineers work closely with them to understand their exact needs and expectations. Prior to designing a customer solution, all aspects of the customers’ manufacturing environment, work surface, and operational requirements are taken into consideration. For example, the desired equipment, finish, current facility configuration, and even the alloy of the part itself are all considered when designing a solution for our customers.

Innovative Technology. Reliable Performance.
