We are excited to announce dates for the 42nd Spring Training Seminar at Empire Abrasive Equipment in Langhorne, PA. This spring, the seminar will be held between Tuesday April 29th and Thursday May 01st. This much-awaited biannual event is very popular among Empire distributors and select customers, attracting a global audience.
Empire has designed this seminar to suit the requirements of a wide spectrum of industry members. An entrant into the field of blast cleaning and shot peening is assured to leave the sessions with a good understanding of not only the Empire product range, but also cognizance of blast techniques. Participants with prior knowledge of the industry and product will gain a richer perspective of applications and equipment by sharing their knowledge and learning from peers in the industry.
This seminar has traditionally attracted active technical discussions between participants and Empire experts on common issues faced by users of blast cleaning and shot peening equipment. The level of expertise available in a single location to respond to such questions is unmatched anywhere else in the industry. More importantly, we have designed this seminar to be hands-on with our demo lab and shop available for ready references.
Some of the topics that our experts will cover include:
• Principles of blasting (suction and pressure)
• Standard and modified cabinets
• Media reclamation and dust collection
• Portable equipment
• Automation and Robotics
• Shot Peening principles
• Airblast rooms
• Safety equipment
• Start-up tips
• Customer service
Please contact your Regional Sales Manager for a detailed seminar schedule.
What’s new this session?
Empire has evolved as an airblast equipment manufacturer over the years. A vast majority of the automated equipment manufactured incorporates robotics. Most recently, Empire was awarded a several contracts to build sophisticated robotic systems. We expect one of these systems to be in its final stages of assembly during the course of this seminar. We will also be demonstrating our newly acquired robotic software and its capabilities to animate path programs – a tool that will greatly enhance your presentation when discussing such equipment with your customers.
