Through comprehensive know-how in procedure technology, the skills for system contexts as well as numerous proprietary global Rösler development and test centers, user-related solutions are particular strengths of Rösler, which ensure our customers the highest degree of quality and cost-effectiveness.
Anyone can do abrasion. However, for the quality of abrasion, the machine technology is decisive in addition to the procedure. Rösler surface technology offers you a broad spectrum for all abrasion applications with numerous tried and true systems for turbine and compressed air blasting - from clocks to steel sheeting, from frying pans to climate control pistons.
From an aesthetic point of you, a smooth surfaces is not always best or the target in the processing of a material. Therefore, abrasion of various materials using shot blasting technology is a daily challenge in surface finishing in numerous industries. Abraded surfaces are characterized by a larger surface and thus offer improved adhesion when coating or adhering various materials.
You set the requirements. In our development and test center we find the economical and technically sensible solution to remove such undesired structures as sharp edges, disruptive flashing or flitter using shot blasting or vibratory procedures.
The bandwidth of Rösler systems ranges from simple, manual machines to fully-automatic, linked designs. Thanks to the high deflashing performance, the machine systems can also be used for finishing (deflashing and cleaning) of magnesium, zinc and aluminum cast parts.
In addition, with the Hunziker® brand, Rösler offers the technological trailblazer in industrial deflashing technology of Duroplast parts and high-fill Thermoplast parts. These machines are developed, produced and sold around the world by Rösler Switzerland AG.
Stripping and repainting serve above all for corrosion protection, as regularly required in the aviation and space industries. The aviation and space industries set the highest requirements for materials and technology, in which the limits of technical feasibility are constantly being redefined and minimum production tolerances must be upheld.
Rösler meets this challenge with technologies including procedures for automatic or manual stripping of composite and metal surfaces in which special wheat starch is used. Stripping can be complete (paint and primer) or selective (primer retained).
Rösler has designed a special nozzle for even paint removal. Compared to regular cylindrical nozzles, this ensures an optimal distribution of the medium over a larger area, avoiding the so-called hot spot.
A 6 axle robot is used for absolute process control and safety in use of the nozzle. The nozzle movement is set by computer using a laser measurement system.
You can't avoid corrosion. But professional corrosion protection which is systematically monitored renewed if necessary can prevent the destruction of valuable components.
Rust removal from metal components is one of the classic applications in vibratory finishing and shot blasting technology, and is the basis for further finishing processes. Rösler offers various methods for rust removal, which are aligned exactly to the special needs of the metal industry.
Sanding of components from casting sets high requirements for the stability of the machine, the durability of the turbines and filter technology for the abrasives.
The Rösler portfolio of shot blasting machines for the foundry industry includes numerous different types of machines (including tumble belt machines, overhead rail machines, rotary table, wire mesh belt, drum and robot blasting machines, but also special systems such as high capacity rotary table machines or motor block blasting machines), which are best suited to these requirements and fulfill all of the specifications for surface finishing in modern foundries.
Thus blasting chambers made of manganese steel ensure perfect impermeability and stability. Individually exchangeable and rotary wear protection plates of manganese steel in the blasting area, which are attached in the patented ceiling tile principle, increase the operational time of the machine. High performance turbines ensure high blasting performance for short processing times.
Additionally, components can be added such as vibration conveyors to separate out sand and fragments even before blasting preparation or the Rösler magnet separator for a perfect degree of separation of the casting sand from the abrasives.
Removing material is one of the most frequent applications in surface finishing, depending on the industry. Semi-automatic and fully-automatic decoating systems have become indispensable in this.
Whether paint, Teflon or ceramic coatings, window profiles or turbine components, Rösler offers you efficient and reliable solutions for various industries with its large range of shot blasting systems and its comprehensive skills for system contexts.
The decisive question in the selection of the right system and consumables is always: How much material removal leads to the perfect result? In our numerous proprietary worldwide development and test centers we will find the most sensible economical and technical solution pursuant to your individual needs. Processing of mineral-based construction materials such as concrete or sandstone, glass, textiles and wood is possible with Rösler machines, as well as the finishing of plastics and metals.
Despite the newest heat treatment processes, discoloration, oxidation, scale and hard residues are found on cast and forged products through manufacturing and environmental influences. Modern production methods, control and testing processes and an uninterrupted continual processing of the cast and forged parts requires clean, light work piece surfaces.
Rösler's broad portfolio offers shot blasting machines and vibratory finishing machines for descaling: Rösler blasting machines for the casting and forging industries are exclusively equipped with our modern turbine technology to effectively and economically descale work pieces.
Rösler vibratory finishing machines, in combination with our proprietary etching compounds are ideal to economically process bulk parts in an environmentally friendly manner.

The complete portfolio can be automated perfectly with the various feed and unloading systems or with robots.
With Rösler high pressure water jet machines, pure water is blasted at up to 5000 bar through a rotating multi-nozzle on the work piece to be finished. Through the rotation of this nozzle, a “milling effect” is created, which gently removes even hard coatings.
Water blasting has many advantages:
ISF® stands for Isotropic Superfinishing – chemically accelerated vibratory finishing. The patented process was developed in collaboration with REM Chemicals, to finish high quality parts sparing the edges as much as possible. It is used primarily in the aviation and space industries, in motor and racing manufacturing, in medical technology and for high precision parts.
In the ISF® process is an ideal combination of chemical and mechanical surface finishing. By using compounds in the acidic range, initially a thin oxide layer is applied to the treated components, which is then removed optimally from the components using selected abrasives. This creates a superfine finish (in the end finish roughness values of up to Ra = 0.02 μm, Rz = 0.14 μm), which leads to the rolling and running noises of components being reduced, reducing friction and thus the energy costs and increasing the service intervals and life.
Angular work pieces not only represent a risk of injury and safety in the assembly process, rounded edged pieces are often technically necessary to ensure functionality. Vibratory finishing is the most economical solution to round off the edges of bulk goods as well as very delicate pieces with high quality requirements in a reproducible and rapid manner.
The most comprehensive range of consumables on the worldwide market, as well as a broad portfolio of vibratory finishing machines, Rösler can deliver optimal results from complete deflashing to completely rounded edges.
Surface improvement, cleaning, preparation, decoating, preparation for initial coating, deflashing and shot peening, these are all tasks for which the wet blasting method can be used. It is a water based method with abrasives and is particularly suited for the finishing of delicate, precision-produced parts.
The significant advantages of wet blasting are:
Special surface finishes can be achieved through the enrichment of the process water with ceramic and mineral abrasives. In addition, through the wet blasting method, blasting of materials is possible which should not come into contact with the air for health reasons.
For consistent process uniformity and high quality surface finishing of the work pieces, the control of the blasting nozzles in Rösler wet blasting machines is assumed by industrial robots or by CNC systems. Loading and unloading can also be automated in many ways, and the individual production requirements implemented.
The surface finishing through polishing requires not only specially designed process technology if the piece is to reach its optimal function and life span. This final treatment also embosses the product with the quality seal of the processor. Because very smooth and/or high-shine surfaces are a sign of proven aesthetics and quality.
This type of high performance surface with little roughness is required above all in medical technology, turbine and transmission manufacturing, the jewelry industry and the automotive industry. Polishing work pieces can optimize the resistance to wear and tear and minimize the energy consumption and noise. With its own program of polishing abrasives, polishing pastes and a large offering of various vibratory finishing machines, wet as well as dry methods, Rösler offers the ideal conditions for your polishing needs.
The cleanliness of components between process stages or before installation is becoming more and more important in the production process. Even today, 10 to 20 percent of production costs fall on industrial cleaning due to rising quality requirements, and this an upward trend. Rösler offers you the efficient and thorough cleaning of components, individually adapted to your production process.
For industrial component cleaning, Rösler offers innovative filter technologies and proprietary cleaning compounds in addition to industrial washing machines of various types, which have high compatibility with Rösler vibratory finishing processes.
Vibratory finishing offers cleaning processes specially for a number work pieces, to either clean them part against part, or using abrasives in combination with wash-active process water. You can also remove oil, degrease and clean in combination processes with deflashing or light edge rounding. This can often avoid an additional cleaning process and production times and costs are effectively reduced.
We will gladly perform a cleaning test on your components in our own test center and test the adherence to your specifications for cleanliness of the cleaned components pursuant to VDA 19 and ISO 16232 in our lab.
Surface defects, mold release seams on components, die-cast surfaces, grinding grooves or roughness from additive production methods and other manufacturing processes need uniform, finely structured surfaces for further use or refining. Rösler vibratory finishing processes create the ideal basis for surface coatings and galvanizing, in particular with complex component shapes.
The application is nearly unlimited for metals, plastics, rubber, wood and ceramics. As the market and technological leader in the vibratory finishing industry, Rösler has not only a nearly unlimited portfolio of the most varied vibratory finishing machines, but also has the largest product pallet in the world of consumables.

Shot peening is a process specially developed to improve the properties of components which are exposed to changing strains. For safety reasons, shot peening is also now absolutely necessary in the aviation and space industries. And shot peening is essential in all industries requiring long lives for components. This includes the automotive sector as well as many other industries.
The requirements for the shot peening method are becoming increasingly more comprehensive.
Rösler shot peening machines ensure absolute precision and reproducibility. By applying internal compressive stress on the component surface, the life of the component is significantly improved. Fatigue cracks and other signs of age during the operation of components are significantly reduced through the use of shot peening.
The desires and requirements of the customer are the focus of Rösler developments: Individually tailored complete solutions are our strength. Rösler shot peening processes are characterized by intelligent process supervision, innovative details and particularly durable components.
Cutlery cleaning and drying with Rösler: For cleanliness and shine
Cleaning dirty cutlery is time consuming, it eats up time, the time of your staff, and is cost intensive.

In addition, high quality cutlery often loses its smooth surface and stops shining over time.
Rösler meets this challenge with cleverly devised cutlery cleaning and drying machines. Rösler offers the special KeramoFinish® process for the refinishing of cutlery, giving your cutlery a high shine!
Our machine portfolio for industrial cutlery cleaning and drying includes:
Technical products require superior functionality and aesthetics in order to be successful in the marketplace. Rosler shot blasting systems offer you nearly unlimited options from deflashing, descaling, sanding and rust removal to roughening, matting, smoothing, edge rounding and shot peening.
There are few technical applications for metal surfaces that can offer the variety of uses that shot blasting technology can offer. Finishing of mineral components such as concrete and sandstone, glass, textiles, wood and plastics is all possible with Rosler machines.
The RBD is exceptionally suited for high volume continuous processing. The continuous belt blasting machine is available both with turbine and compressed air technology.
These machines are excellent for all-round, complete and continuous blasting treatment of flat as well as voluminous and very complex components.
With 4 or 8 high power Hurricane turbines, mounted around the housing (both vertically and horizontally inclined), it is also possible to treat very complex components, which have "pockets" or difficult to reach areas. A highly wear-resistant wire mesh belt, with tension adjustment, provides the part transport.
The special belt guiding enables the lower turbines to blast only through one belt position, which means that any masking is kept to a minimum.
This type of system is characterised by its multiple applications. Components with different sizes, shapes and geometries, as well as delicate components, can be processed easily.
These machines have three satellite turntable inserts (multiple table options are available upon request), each with a diameter of 1000 mm. These are integrated into the main table level, which has a diameter of 2500 mm. Once on the rotary disks, the components are blasted by high-performance Hurricane or Rutten turbines.
Overhead rail shot blasting units are recommended for the treatment of sensitive parts which cannot be tumbled in bulk loads, and for particularly complex, heavy, or large parts. The parts are mounted on a hook and transported into the blasting chamber. The simultaneous rotating and oscillating movement of the hook ensures that the blasting media, accelerated by the multiple turbines, reaches every component, providing the best possible uniform blasting result. Rösler Overhead Rail units are very versatile units, and their compact design requires minimum floor space.
A complete blasting and painting line consisting of individually adapted conveyor systems, a pre-heater, shotblasting machine, paint booth, and a post treatment dryer. Conveyor systems can be chosen according to individual requirements, together with roller conveyors, traveling grates, and cross transfer lines, etc. A gas-fired pre-heater unit allows the treatment of wet or even ice-covered material from outside storage. The paint layer produced in the paint booth will be dried in line by the post dryer unit, allowing the handling of the components immediately upon exit for further treatment steps. To reduce energy costs, the final drying process uses waste heat energy from the pre-heater.
Roller conveyor lines are an essential part of the overall preservation system. The components (plates, tubes or profiles) continuously pass through the pre-treatment chamber, the blasting chamber and the cleaning chamber, on a special roller conveyor. The high performance turbines mounted on the cabin housing ensure all-round coverage under controlled process conditions, and thus produce the desired cleaning effect.
Mass-produced components, which can be tumbled, are ideal for processing in tumble belt batch machines, no matter what materials they are made from. Anything from small, delicate plastic parts to large, forged components, can be finished to the highest standard.
The batch system can be extended to a fully automatic system with the addition of peripheral loading and unloading equipment.
These specialised blast machines allow comprehensive and uniform shot blast treatment of tubes and round bars in a continuous process.
Ideal for integration into an existing production facility.
These special roller conveyor machines for blast cleaning of complex welding constructions where all surfaces are cleaned. For example head- and base-plates, welded ribs and re-enforcements must be de-scaled and de-rusted. And the welding seams must be cleaned.
All-around blast cleaning of outer and inner surfaces takes place through 2 “blast zones”. The first "blast zone" consists of equally spaced blast wheels mounted onto the roof and bottom of the blast cabin – with larger machines there are also blast wheels mounted to the cabin walls. The second "blast zone" of blast wheels is placed at a negative angle relative to the direction of the parts transport. The blast pattern created by these two "blast zones" allows all-around blast cleaning of a vertically placed base-plate.
Typical areas of application: Steel and shipbuilding, mechanical engineering
Roller conveyor shot blasting machines are mainly used for treating long and/or flat components. The components continuously pass through the "pre" chamber, the blasting chamber, and the cleaning chamber on a special roller conveyor.
Highly efficient turbines fixed on the machine housing make it possible to treat the components on all sides.
Rösler roller conveyor shot blasting machines are used to remove scale, rust and paint from long and/or flat components.
The RRB designed was fitted with our heavy-duty turbine system, which generates significant operating cost reductions due to faster throughput times, as well as reductions in shot-blasting media consumption and energy requirements.
With the Rösler RSA 1400 indexing rotary table machine, gentle finishing of different kinds of components with no part-on-part contact is possible.
The entire spectrum of blasting applications ranges from delicate deburring up to shot peening. The installation is particularly interesting for applications in which the entire surface of the components need not be blasted, but only specific sections.
The RSA 1400 concept is based on a modular system and can be equipped with 6, 8, 10 or 12 satellites operating completely automatically.
These machines can be equipped with either injection or pressure blasting systems.
Rösler continuous flow shot blasting machines are ideally suited for treating small, high-volume bulk components. The special design of the V-shaped loop belt creates a screw-like movement of the parts through the machine, ensuring homogenous treatment of all parts. Another advantage of this loop belt conveyor system is to enable supply and extraction systems for a continuous flow of components of upstream and downstream processes.
Blast cabinets are ideal when a variety of small parts is to be treated. The cabinets can be equipped with turntables, baskets, blast nozzles, pressure blasting systems, oscillators and other special auxiliary equipment, making them very versatile. The full-width front-opening door provides clear access to the complete blast chamber and the special design prevents blast media spillage when opened:
Pressure and injector blast cabins are used for:
The range of shot blast media that can be used covers all non-hygroscopic media from very abrasive materials (e.g. aluminium oxide or silicon carbide) to plastic media and corn cob.
The RWK features manual or fully automatic material handling in parallel with an ongoing blasting process, significantly reducing costly auxiliary process times.
The turning chamber blasting machine is the ideal blasting solution for cleaning, deflashing and peening a wide variety of work pieces, such as; cylinder heads, engine blocks, springs and automobile industry frame components.
The RWT is a space-saving blasting machine that can be fully automated with any corresponding handling devices. The work pieces (e.g. transmission components, gear wheels, shafts...) are delivered to a rotating satellite for processing. The horizontally and vertically traveling blasting unit guarantees an optimal and repeatable blasting outcome. Extensive options are available for process monitoring (e.g. blasting abrasive quantity, pressure regulation...)

Even today, 10 to 20 percent of production costs fall on industrial cleaning due to rising quality requirements, and this an upward trend. Rosler offers you the efficient and thorough cleaning of components, individually adapted to your production process.
Rösler´s continuous transport belt washing machines are manufactured from stainless steel1.4301 (AISI 304) and used for degreasing, washing, blowing and drying of metallic components which are placed directly on the belt or on customized pallets according to the components to be treated.
Our machines can be equipped with oil separators, medium or high pressure blowers, compound dosing systems, filter systems and vapor condensers.
Rösler manufactures washing cabinets in stainless steel 1.4301 (AISI 304), with different processing zones: multistage with degreasing, washing, passivation, blow off and drying.
The washing is carried out via centrifugal pumps that blast the cleaning liquid at high pressure, removing any stubborn contaminates and oils which can be on the surface.
Rösler´s rotary washing machines consist of a rotary platform and various chambers for separating the washing, degreasing and blow off process. The components are placed directly on the rotary platform or on special designed fixtures based on the shape and size of the components to be treated. The loading and unloading can be carried out manually or automatically using a robot.
Washing machine with three process steps: degreasing (divided in two zones: high and medium pressure), high pressure washing and blow off.
The components are placed vertically on rotary transport fixtures. The loading and unloading of the components is carried out using a robot.
The Rösler drum type machine is ideal for bulk treatment of large production volumes (nuts and bolts, machined and turned components).
Manufactured from stainless steel AISI 304, the washing machines can have different cycles such as: immerged degreasing, sprayed degreasing, washing, passivation or oiling and drying.
We provide various models with different diameters and a variable production (from 20 litres/h to 1000 litres/h). We also manufacture special type large diameter drums for volumes over 3000kg/h of components.
Our washing machines can be equipped with automatic component loading systems and weight control at the discharge point; in addition to oil separation, compound dosing systems and steam condensers.
