BCT Waterjet

Company News - September 17, 2019

After moving to our bigger and better facility, Blast Cleaning Technologies wanted to focus on making as many parts as we could in-house. Prior to moving into facility, we would outsource materials to have them cut and then shipped in to be processed. Here at BCT, we want to be as hands-on as possible and make sure that we are giving our customers the best quality parts and equipment. When being outsourced BCT wasn’t able to have a hands-on approach in the first processing of our customers materials. Because of this, we installed our OMAX CNC Waterjet Cutting Machine in October of 2018.

Our waterjet can be programmed through a nesting software that aides in cutting any and all shapes and sizes up to a 10x20 cutting envelope. Most of the materials that we cut here at BCT are 1 inch thick, but we have the capability to cut material as thick as 6 inches. Waterjets do not induce any heat; this ensures that all our manganese steel is as strong as possible. When heat is applied to metal it changes the metal’s characteristics making it brittle and susceptible to breakage.

Other notable qualities about the Waterjet is that there are little to no wasted materials. Since the cutting is so precise, we can cut the products right next to each other with little to no gaping! Here at BCT we also recycle 100% of the water used by the jet.

Blast Cleaning Technologies investment will continue to prove as well as pay for itself with improved efficiency and quality!

Vertias Steel

Industry News - August 15, 2019

Veritas Steel is a leader in the bridge fabrication industry. Chances are you have driven over one of their many bridges including the Kentucky Lake Bridge in Benton, Kentucky and the Memorial Drive bridge in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Earlier this year Blast Cleaning Technologies assisted their Wausau, WI facility to upgrade their Wheelabrator™ Monorail Shot Blast Machine from out-dated belt driven blast wheels.  Veritas Steel decided to move forward and replace all eight wheels to our direct drive M3 TwistLOK™ eWheel™ and all eight abrasive valves to our MACV control valve assemblies. Our engineering team was able to utilize a pre-engineered adapter flange with a ½” thick Manganese steel flange inside the cabinet to repair damage near existing wheel openings. 

Veritas Steel

Veritas steel works very hard to meet or better their customer’s timelines. This meant we were not able to take the blast machine down during production hours to install the new blast wheels and valves. Our World Class Service Team installed the wheels over three weekends, ensuring the machine was back up and running for production each Monday morning.

The Wausau facility specializes in steel plate girders up to 10’ tall. The girders go from blast to paint and must have a specific profile for optimum paint adhesion. With the old belt-driven wheels, it would take 2-3 passes through the blast machine to achieve this profile. Since the upgrade to the direct drive TwistLOK™ eWheels™, most of their girders are clean after a single pass.

Veritas Steel Wheel

The return on investment will prove itself out and has already been shown to be paying for itself with improved efficiency and reduced maintenance.
