Abrasive Blasting 101
We often hear complaints about blast cabinets from people who are in the market for a replacement machine. These are usually people who bought the wrong machine for their application, and here are the most common things they complain about.
Pro Tip: Most of these complaints about blast cabinets are based on not enough research done before purchasing a mediablaster®. Typically, great tools are more expensive for a reason, and they are often more than worth the additional cost.
Most people don’t realize that it takes more time making a low-cost do-it-yourself blasting cabinet than buying a low-cost blasting cabinet unless your time is worth nothing. Understanding blasting cabinets (or really NOT understanding blasting cabinets) is the main reason users can end up frustrated, look for ways to improve the cabinet beyond a 5% daily duty cycle, and end up making complaints about blast cabinets.
Media Blast® has over 50 different blast cabinet models and 170 different blasting cabinets, so we’re confident we can find the right machine for your needs the first time you make a purchase.
