Removing a Ductile Layer from a Brittle Substrate

The selective cleaning process uses the abrasive qualities of MicroBlasting to carefully erode layers of unwanted material from a base substrate. The process takes advantage of the different physical properties of the two layers. Brittle materials can be removed from...

5 Important Variables for Abrasive Jet Machining

5 Important Variables for Abrasive Jet Machining

Using MicroBlasting to cut or etch a part (a process also known as controlled erosion) is a great method to machine many precision parts, from drilling holes in ceramic substrates to cutting slots in fragile silicon and glass wafers.  MicroBlasting is “shockless,”...

The MicroBlasting Guide to Precision Abrasives

The MicroBlasting Guide to Precision Abrasives

One of the keys to efficient MicroBlasting is using quality abrasives. In the past, we’ve discussed why you shouldn’t recycle used abrasive - this month, let’s dive into what kind of precision abrasives you should be using.Why Are Comco’s Abrasives Superior? There are...

Keeping Your Air Supply Dry

Keeping Your Air Supply Dry

If you've ever been frustrated by a full, but non functioning salt shaker, discovered a suspect mass of whey in a tub of protein powder, or had to break up a chunk of powdered detergent, you know that fine powders and moisture are not a great combination. The...

Lens Engraving With the Serializer

Lens Engraving With the Serializer

We've made a big update to one of our Automated Systems! One of our favorite customization options is the serializer for our Advanced Lathe. This modification has long been used to engrave serial numbers on delicate ring laser gyro lenses without chipping or masking....

VIDEO: Using the Abrasive Blend Knob

VIDEO: Using the Abrasive Blend Knob

What is the abrasive blend knob? The abrasive blend knob can be a bit of a mystery. What's the right setting? How far can I turn it clockwise? Will opening it create a richer abrasive stream? Every blaster is configured to a specification. This means the tank orifice,...

Decapping ICs

Decapping ICs

Delicate silicon dies are encapsulated in epoxy to protect them. This becomes a problem when extracting the silicon die for failure analysis or reverse engineering. When using MicroBlasting, decapping an integrated circuit is safer, easier and more environmentally...
