MBB1630-3030 – Basket Blasters

ISTblast MBB Basket Blasters automate cleaning, peening and finishing of small workpieces. With certain types of parts, no other finishing method can compare to these heavy-duty machines in terms of speed and quality results.

Operation is simple: Load parts into basket equipped with small perforations to let media enter blasting area, set precision timer according to desired output, and let Basket Blaster do the rest. By tumbling parts within abrasive blast streams, these machines deliver consistent finishes – automatically.

ISTblast heavy-duty Basket Blasters feature unloading chute to speed parts-handling, and rubber-lined media reclaimer supported by rugged duct work to reduce maintenance requirements.

Two models available:

  • MBB with 350-lb parts capacity and three pneumatically controlled oscillating blast guns that increase production rates while reducing power consumption
  • Smaller MBB unit with two blast guns and 250-lb capacity
