Capstone Project: Sandblasting Optimization

Students determined that a static electricity charge created by sandblasting caused the blasting grit to cling to the product in the machine, thus causing process problems later and also causing an unsafe working condition for employees. They selected, installed, and configured a system to eliminate the static charges, thus solving the problem.
