The SPE Advantage - Shotblasting Education Month


Why Shotblasting Education month? Over the past 6 months, we have heard an increasing interest in shotblasting from customers who were very unfamiliar with it. Because shot blasting is so effective in surface prep, we saw this as a opportunity to educate you on the technology, uses, and benefits of it. With decades of experience in not only manufacturing machinery, but also surface prep contracting in Europe, we thought we would pass along our expertise.



SPE Shotblasters have led this area of the surface prep industry for decades.  Approaching shotblasting from a different angle than our competitors, we've engineered machines that are both safer and more precise than other shotblasters on the market.  We firmly believe that each of our shotblasters offers a unique benefit to contractors and we've highlighted a number of those characteristics below.  Starting with our smaller shotblasters and working our way up, we'll examine the differences and similarities of our shotblasting range to help guide contractors towards what shotblaster might be best for them.  And, of course, if you're still not sure what shotblasting is or what its applications and uses are, feel free to check out Week 1 - What is Shotblasting? and Week 2 - Applications & Uses of Shotblasting of our Shotblasting Education Month series for more information.
