Truck Body and Trailer Manufacturing

Under production pressures? Frustrated with low quality work? Worried about declining profit margins?  BlastOne has solutions.

Industrial Truck Body & Trailer Blast & Paint Facilities

BlastOne has a long history of working with trailer manufacturing and maintenance facilities to get their rigs rolling.  We treat each project as a unique challenge and partner with you to find the fastest, safest and cleanest solution for your team.

A protective coating system has a distinct service life. No coating lasts for ever – particularly not in a harsh environment. Extending that service life is possible with quality coatings, applied with quality coating equipment, applied over a substrate which has been prepared to a high quality standard using high quality blasting equipment and high quality abrasive. From brushes and rollers to turnkey plural component spraying systems, BlastOne is your one-stop-shop source of supply.

Industry Challenges

Here are a few common issues we’ve found from working with the industry:

  • Labor shortages

    Today’s tight labor market makes this challenge worse, affecting your ability to produce consistent results and finished equipment at a consistent pace. Blasting is typically physically demanding with the needed flexibility to maneuver oneself to nooks & crannies.  This results in few eager and willing recruits for the role. Staff turnover is a costly and time consuming issue for the majority of companies in the industry.
  • Tight project deadlines and production losses

    Every hour a truck or trailer is off the road, profit is lost. Old coatings and corrosion needs to be removed quickly, new coatings applied, and the truck back on the open road as soon as possible.

    If your truck or trailer is also in need of repair work, additional time will be added to an already tight turnaround. While repairs and modifications are happening, you can’t blast and paint.  While blasting and painting is taking place you can’t undertake repairs or modifications. This leads to project delays, overtimes, and penalty rates.

  • Excessive maintenance costs

    Many trailer manufacturing facilities have to manage a cyclic business environment, impacting the businesses cash flow. Slow production times from dated and inefficient equipment add to increased cost levels.  Additionally, excessive maintenance costs related to old blasting and painting systems chew into margins even further.
  • Incredibly dusty work environment

    Abrasive blasting is by nature a dusty process. Take a substance and break it down into millions of pieces and you will create a dust storm. This dust storm hinders visibility, is a health hazard and is harsh on machinery.

Why Blast?

Trailer Manufacturing

A clean surface is the first step to having a quality, durable finish on heavy, transport equipment, trucks or trailers. Abrasive blasting removes dirt, dust, imperfections and unwanted contaminants from the surface requiring protection. White metal surface is an ideal finish for primer and epoxy sealing. 

Road transport assets require an impenetrable barrier to protect the steel from corrosion. These assets are high value and when in service earn significant income. When road transport assets are out of service, losses in income and productivity ultimately lead to a loss of profits.

Abrasive blasting is the best way to ensure the surface is ready for proper coating application and lengthening the service life of the coating. 

The Best Blasting Equipment

In order to save time during blasting, using a bulk pot can cut down on project downtime. You will no longer have to stop mid-shift to depressurize and refill the pot. 

One of the biggest hurdles for the road transport industry is outdated equipment. If you wish to increase the output and reduce the costs of your blast and paint facility, if blaster employee turnover is high, or a poor safety record is a concern, BlastOne recommends automated surface preparation systems. Either the robotic manipulator arm style of blasting or wall or gantry mounted machinery can automate your blasting. To save time during blasting, using a bulk pot can cut down on project downtime. You will no longer have to stop mid-shift to depressurize and refill the pot and they can supply multiple blast nozzle.


Using robotics for sandblasting is an increasing trend in the abrasive blasting industry. Robotic Blasting improves your profits, productivity and employee safety more than any other development in the modern age. Simple to operate, customizable, and can be used for complete manual blasting if required.


Abrasive media is one of the biggest recurring costs for any blasting operator. A single contractor can blast up to 6 tons of abrasive in a single day. To save on abrasive cost, recover and recycle used abrasive.

BlastOne’s oscillating cross conveyor system which has a live sieve on it, efficiently removes coarse trash from the reusable media. The next stage of the cleaning process is the air wash. This passes a curtain of used abrasive across a low-suction extraction system to remove abrasive fines. The system works completely out-of-sight to not interfere with day-to-day operations, with external access to key component parts. It has proven to be efficient and effective, with little-to-no maintenance necessary.

Blast and Paint Halls

BlastOne supplies blast and paint facilities that cut costs, improve production rates and better safety records.

Large enclosed halls can be designed and engineered to provide ventilation and visibility for both painting and grit blasting. The abrasive recovery recycling systems improve work efficiency, while humidity controlled air helps prevent oxidation and flash rusting of the steel between the blasting and coating processes.

The configuration of the rooms can be designed around your size requirements. Ventilation systems are designed for end draft or downdraft configurations.

Normally, because of the size of the rooms, a separate structure is required for the booth and building structure.
