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!
