Damage From Forklifts Is a Thing of the Past With Bars Added to Steel Frame
WARMINSTER, PA (February 8, 2022) – Quite often, a blast cabinet has to be moved to a different part of a plant or facility using a forklift. The problem? Due to the flimsy sheet metal used to construct the legs on most blast cabinets, they are extremely susceptible to forklift damage, whether it’s bent legs, crushed cones, or general destruction.
The Titan Abrasive blast cabinet is already built to withstand day-to-day wear and tear — including abuse from forklifts — since the structural steel frame won’t bend, fold, or twist. But with the addition of the company’s exclusive new lifting bars, the chances of forklift damage to the cabinet is virtually eliminated. The bars are simply slid into the structural steel frame before lifting the cabinet, giving the forklift a secure hold and keeping the forks away from the vulnerable cone.
Brandon Acker, president of Titan Abrasive Systems, notes that the development of the lifting bars is in keeping with company’s long-standing tradition of innovation.
“Our blast cabinets have incorporated a variety of exclusive features unmatched in the industry,” he said. “Whether it’s the structural steel frame, leak-proof doors, or proximity sensors, we’ve set the bar for innovation. The new lifting bars raise the bar a little bit higher.”
He explained that the impetus for the creation of the lifting bars was the desire to make the sturdiest blast cabinet in the industry even sturdier.
“Over the years we’ve seen a lot of used equipment come through our trade-in program. As items passed through our facility, we took note of problems, including blast cabinets with dented frames and bashed-in side panels. So we knew that the structural steel frame that we use was absolutely necessary, but it wasn’t enough.
“The lifting bars removed the potential damage from forklift usage,’ he added. “When it comes to ensuring that our cabinets last a lifetime, we’ve left nothing to chance.”
The introduction of the lifting bars puts more distance between Titan’s blast cabinet and competitive products. Over two years in development, Titan’s patent-pending, heavy-duty blast cabinet delivers high performance, reduced operating costs and improved productivity — all in a user-friendly design.
Every Titan blast cabinet comes standard with two rigid, steel channel, double-panel doors with knife edge. Lift-off hinges allow for fast on-off door removal, eliminating the troublesome welded hinges of the past. Full-opening doors maximize work chamber capacity and ease loading of larger parts. Plus, self-adjusting dual door latches lock at two points, creating a perfect, dust-free seal every time.
Other exclusive Titan blast cabinet features include: an LED window frame light to aid visibility while blasting; bolt-in floor supports, making it simple to replace worn supports and the metal floor; and 100% electrical controls to deliver the fastest response time. A customizable control panel, easy-change gloves, and moveable foot pedal increase the cabinet’s ease of use and smooth operation.
The Titan blast cabinet line comes complete with:
- A cartridge dust collector designed specifically for blast cabinet use
- An adjustable Media Reclaim System with wear plate
- A three cubic-foot pressure vessel with 1 ¼” piping
Titan’s unique design allows for additional options that can be added as part of the original RFQ or post-purchase.
