Cramer’s is now offering sandblasting services in our shop with a professional sandblasting cabinet. This cabinet allows us to clean precision parts and prepare them for further processes, like powder coating. We can also remove rust from old parts, bringing them back to working order.
Approximate dimensions of parts that we can accommodate:
3 feet (Width) x 2 feet (Height) x 2 feet (Depth)
Types of Sandblasting Services
- Removal of Rust, Slag, or Machining Scale
- Part Preparation
Blast cabinet applications are virtually limitless, including cleaning, deburring, decorating, deflashing, etching, finishing, honing and peening. All of these uses and more can be accomplished easily with quick sweeps of the blast finish gun nozzle. Scale, corrosion, old paint and other surface materials are removed in minutes, leaving metal surfaces free of foreign matter and contamination. Even tough mill scale is quickly and efficiently removed.
The blasting finishing system utilizes a variety of abrasives such as aluminum oxide, white aluminum oxide, urea and other plastic abrasives, corn cob grit, walnut shell grit, glass beads, pumice, crushed glass grit, silicon carbide, steel grit and steel shot. A multitude of finishes are possible, ranging from a micro-finish to a coarse-grade finish, depending upon the specific media used. Our blast cabinets can apply the proper abrasive to provide the desired finish for each specific blast cabinet application.
Applications include cleaning precision parts such as small gears, stampings, forgings and extruding dies, molds for glass, plastic, rubber and metal castings, pistons, valves, cylinder heads, armatures, brushes and rotors in the overhaul of electric motors and generators and machine parts.
Applications include removal of heat treat scale, carbon deposits, slag, oxides and discolorations, scale from high speed drills and other cutting tools, light machine burrs, paint, varnish and lacquer.
Blasting is useful in preparing surfaces for painting, plating, anodizing, welding and the bonding of coatings.
Applications include peening to increase fatigue resistance of critical parts, to increase resistance of parts which operate in a corrosive environment and to provide stress relief at weld points.
Items such as rusted tools, used files, saw blades and hardware parts can be reclaimed with a blast finishing system.
Provides decorative quality finishes useful in industries including automotive, appliance, photographic and jewelry industries. Applications include improving the appearance of castings by removing scale and thin edges and blending minor defects, dimpling surfaces to improve adhesion for plastic, rubber and paint and improving lube holding ability of running parts by creating uniform lubrication pockets.
Abrasive blasting will produce an effect that may combine both a cleaning and finishing action. The finishing effect may vary by controlling such factors as hardness of the abrasive, abrasive particle size, velocity of abrasive stream, angle of abrasive gun, distance from the work, method of application and workflow.
As it is applied to preparation of surfaces prior to finishing, abrasive blasting is generally used to replace sanding, wire brushing and pickling. Ordinarily, no other cleaning is necessary because the blasted surface is chemically and mechanically cleaned.
Abrasive blasting can make a good finish better and cleaner. It also produces a better tooth for bonding. It is estimated that the surface area of metal increases as much as ten times as a result of the abrasive impact action. This increases the surface to which paint, coating or plating can adhere.

Had some parts made for my atv their that turn out fantastic. I went in with a part I took off not knowing if they could reverse engineer it like that but they did in only two days. The shop was super clean inside with tile floors and tons of new machines that look very high end. The office people were really nice and I could tell the guys in the shop like working their.…read more→
This is an excellent shop! Great customer service and top notch machining! Some of the nicest and most approachable folks you'll meet! Even though I'm a small business, they happily fit me into their workflow and treated me just like the big guys.
Cramer's has the customer service and feel of a small shop, with all of the capabilities of a shop you'd find in a much larger market. Their proprietary rubber-to-metal bonding process means that my parts actually work as intended instead of failing due to improper adhesion. Thanks, Cramer's! You guys are a life-saver.
Needed a prototype part for an idea I have been working on. Came in and was impressed by how clean and efficient their factory was. No hard sales pressure just wanted to get the job right. I will be back.
