Guyson International launches robotic blasting technology for AM parts

September 22, 2017

Guyson International, headquartered in Skipton, North Yorkshire, UK, has launched a new robotic blasting technology for metal additively manufactured parts, the Guyson PRS. With the introduction of this technology, the company hopes to increase its presence in the Additive Manufacturing industry, producing blast cabinets to facilitate production of AM components for the aerospace, medical and automotive sectors.

Mark Viner, who was appointed Managing Director of Guyson’s Blast & Wash Division in April 2017, is leading a team of ten in the development of further technologies for Additive Manufacturing, which he states is already responsible for 20% of the company’s machine sales. “The AM market is growing rapidly and we are growing with it. It’s a form of manufacturing that has been developing in the background for the last twenty years but over the last five, we have seen an acceleration in demand for products which facilitate fast, efficient and cost-effective Additive Manufacture,” he explained.

“We offer a range of solutions from entry and mid-level manual finishing stations through to the Guyson PRS which uses robotic blasting methodology to reveal components and reclaim the valuable and re-usable powder. While this time and cost saving process is invaluable in any Additive Manufacturing business, it’s particularly in demand in the aerospace, medical implant and automotive industries where companies want automation to manage volume and ensure product consistency.”

Jimmy Thomson, Business Development Manager at Guyson, added, “Growth in the AM industry complements our core, established areas of expertise and we are relishing the challenge of applying eight decades of Guyson manufacturing expertise to this evolving market which is changing the face of production across the globe.”
