CNC Rotary Table Shot Blasting Machines

Fast part processing, fast setup times, and precise nozzle-to-part motion control make our rotary table shot peening machines uniquely suited to a multitude of uses.

Reduced Setup Times

Motion control reduces costly nozzle setup time, and time cycles.


Precise Control

CNC motion allows a nozzle to follow the contour of a part for consistent and true intensity and coverage throughout the part.



Rotary table machines offer customers repeatable and stable systems for a wide variety of parts.

Exact, repeatable control.

CNC is the flexible method of peening or blasting a wide range of parts. Using CNC motion control allows the user to reduce the costly setup time of nozzles, provide a total coverage of the parts using less compressed air, control intensity across all blast areas of a part, and allows for easy Almen strip saturation verification. The operator loads a fixture while a part is processed inside the cabinet. The parts rotate in front of a series of nozzles that can be mounted on a combination of nozzles axis. After the cycle time is over, the doors open and the main table indexes. Exposing the finished part to an operator or unloading/loading robot.

Robust Customization

CNC rotary table shot blasting machines can be built to fit parts of any size and weight, and are available with multiple options such as:

  • Multiple shot delivery systems including continuous direct pressure, gravity feed suction, or dual shot delivery.
  • Up to six axis of motion depending on the application
  • AMS2430 compliant
  • Propietary CIMCAP CNC software
  • Fanuc CNC controllers
  • Single or batch processing
  • Robotic articulating arm loading integration
  • Assembly line integration

Ease of Use

Controlled Intelligent Motion Computer Alarm Parameters (CIMCAP) is available as an option on all of our CNC equipment. Our PC‐based passive computer program allows a novice to learn how to quickly program the CNC system.

A simple click on a specific CIMCAP icon and the program will write the G code line for the programmer. CIMCAP is also used for process monitoring and alarm management.

Advanced Motion Control

Using motion control allows the user to reduce the costly nozzle setup time. It also allows for total coverage of the parts while using less compressed air. Time cycles are typically much reduced because no unwanted over peening/blasting is done. 

Controllers are off-the-shelf and use industry-wide G code commands. The controller’s service life is measured in decades. 

Robotic Arm Shot Peening

Articulating arm robotics can be added to the interior or exterior of all IPS machines. Normally this type of robotic motion is specific to an application, such as plastic media blasting, or a specific motion that a CNC-gantry robot cannot provide. Articulating arm robots are historically cheaper than CNC-gantry robots, but can be more expensive to repair should wear occur inside the enclosure. Articulating arm robots also require larger enclosure sizes to accommodate the robot motion. The main benefit of an articulating arm robot motion is speed and reach. Systems can also be integrated with other loading robots and multi systems tasking.

Robotic articulating arm machines offer users a fast nozzle motion for larger parts that need quick cycle timers. Customers may choose the robot of choice. Another benefit to some customers is the familiarity of robot programming. Machine enclosures are custom built to allow the robotic arm to fully move to peen or blast the users part.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Why should I shot peen parts?

    Shot peening enhances parts by replacing tensile stress. Tensile stress can cause parts to fail, with compressive residual stress, which are strong and part of a design and reside in a part. Well know examples of residual stress designs are the Colosseum in Rome and the Hoover Dam.

    Will extra peening make a part even stronger?

    No, you can actually damage the fatigue life of a part by overpeening and the best way to control the peening to specification is through CNC control.


    How can a single robotic nozzle be better than a batch or multi- nozzle machine?

    A single nozzle robotic machine is better and faster than batch and multiple nozzle machines since they will cover the entire designated area to precisely 100% coverage. Batch and multi-nozzle machines can strike the same place to 300% or 400% coverage in order to get all areas to 100%, ultimately weakening the part AND increasing production time.
