  • Patent number: 10300580
    Abstract: A hanging section is installed at an upper side of a cabinet, and an autorotation mechanism rotates the hanging section around an axis of the hanging section in upward/downward directions of a device. In addition, a hanger unit hanging from the hanging section is installed in a cabinet, and a pair of frame sections is parallelly installed in series to match opening directions. Then, projection machines project a shot media toward the hanger unit. In addition, a loading/unloading device installed outside the cabinet is configured such that arm constituting a part thereof can be inserted into an opening section of the frame section of the hanger unit, and a tray on which a workpiece is placed can be conveyed. The loading/unloading device loads/unloads the tray with respect to the hanger unit by advancing and retracting the arm.

  • Patent number: 9511479
    Abstract: To provide a apparatus for processing an object by projecting shots thereon that can be downsized and can use shots of appropriate sizes. A pressure tank 42 is disposed below a position 24X where an object to be processed 12 is projected. The shots that have been projected are received by the tank 42. The discharging portion of the tank 42 is communicated with a device for projecting shots. One end of a piping for transporting air for a discharge 54 that can suction shots is connected to a position between the position 24X and the tank 42. The other end of the piping 54 is connected to a separator 68. The separator 68 is connected to one end of the piping for transporting air for a supply 76 that can suction shots. The other end of the piping 76 is communicated with the room for projecting the shots 16.

  • Patent number: 9163295
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide a shot-treatment apparatus which allows a high throughput of workpieces with the least possible idle time while achieving a uniform shot-treatment effect on workpieces. The shot-treatment apparatus of the present invention has a rotatable main table 30 located in the place where both a projection area to be projected upon by the shot from a projecting device and a non-projection area are included. A plurality of satellite tables 32 for placing workpieces 12 are rotatably mounted on the main table 30. Each satellite table 32 has a driven shaft 33 which is in parallel with a main shaft 31 of the main table 30.
