Roll Etching Machine


Roll Etching (or Roll Blasting or Roll Texturing)


Automatic Operation

Equipment description

SURFEX® designs and manufactures the Air Operated Roll Etching (or Roll Blasting / Roll Texturing) for a Rolls used in Rolling Mills.

The machine will be based on Pressure Principle.
The machine will consist of blast cabinet, job support and rotating station with work car, horizontal nozzle reciprocating arrangement, reclaimer unit, storage tank, blast generator and dust collector system.

A fixed rotating station is there on which the rolls are placed. The rotating station will have 2 No’s of rollers which are duly rubber lined, which rotates the component.

The Roll will rotate on its axis and the blast nozzle will move forward & backward (with the help of nozzle reciprocation arrangement) and clean the Roll uniformly from outer periphery.

The abrasive stored in the bottom storage hopper will be sucked inside the reclaimer unit by the suction draft created by the vacuums suction of the exhaust blower. The cyclonic action inside the reclaimer separates the dust and abrasive. The separated abrasive passed gets stored in abrasive storage tank. From abrasive storage tank, the abrasive will go into the blast generator (pressure vessel) for the reuse purpose. From the pressure vessel, the blasting abrasive media is carried away by the compressed air to the blast nozzle for roll basting.

SURFEX® equipment includes a fully automatic Dust Collection System to remove dust and fines from the blast cabinet.
