Gibson Tumble Blasters process multiple parts, ranging in size from small to medium, with a level of speed and efficiency unmatched by other types of equipment in a comparable price range.

Gibson produces Tumble Blasters in ten standard models with load capacities ranging up to 3,000 pounds or 24 cubic feet. Actual machine listed for sale 6 cubic foot / 130 cubic Ltrs, max work load 360 Kgs.  

These rugged machines automate cleaning, peening, deburring, profiling, finishing and many other surface-conditioning tasks on a vast range of parts.

Plus they are simple to operate. The operator loads parts onto a rugged perforated belt, closes the loading door, sets the timer and pushes the start button. By tumbling parts within the blast envelope, these machines deliver consistent results automatically whether working intermittently or non-stop in a multi-shift production facility.

Standard Features:

  • Abrasive-resistant barrel heads, cabinet lines and door liners.
  • Mill Reverse and mill bypass.
  • Vertical lift door.
  • Variable speed drive blast wheels.


  • Batches of parts that can tumble on top of each other without causing damage to the parts.
  • Advantages: Can run large batches of smaller parts all together, No manual flipping or rotating, all sides will be blasted if they tumble properly.

Footprint 6,500mm wide x 4,900mm deep.
Please note that footprint 6,500mm can be significantly reduced by reducing the unload vibratory conveyor.
