Vixen's Aquablast Makes First Appearance on Wheeler Dealers

Vixen were recently approached by one of Wheeler Dealers producers for the use of one of our Aquablast 915 wet blasting cabinets, to be featured on the latest episode on the Discovery channel Honda S2000. Star of the show, Edd China himself personally requested to try out Vixen’s Aquablast machine.

Edd is renowned for his passion for vehicles and is famously known for rebuilding cars. Edd’s success can partly be put down to his creativity using mechanics in unique ways and leading innovation within the industry.

The Vixen Team Spread Knowledge across the Atlantic

Rick Paul, Vixen’s American distributor and founder of ‘Wetblasting.com’, recently had the opportunity to visit our head office, based in Teesside, in the North East of England.  Not only was it his first visit to our factory, but it was his first time meeting all of the Vixen team face-to-face, after months of correspondence over email.

Stunning Carb Cleaning Results that Speak for Themselves

As part of Practical Sports Bike Magazine’s GPz750 restoration project, the time came for the carburettors to be restored. The Vixen cleaning machines were chosen after previously being used in the project for restoring the engine casings.

Aquablast Automatic Tumbler Machine added to Vixen Wetblasting Range

Vixen’s range of Aquablast wetblasting machines are becoming increasingly popular with companies looking for solutions to improve surface finishing and the cleaning of more delicate components. Wetblasting is a dust free process and the Aquablast machines simultaneously degrease and blast in one operation, eliminating the need for two machines in some cases. The superior finish in one process has encouraged many companies to switch to this method of surface treatment.

Demonstration and Sample Processing Facility

The new extension, which will be fully operational by the end of 2009, will provide a 10 machine demonstration room to allow existing and potential customers to view machines in operation and bring their own sample parts to process.

New Aquablast F1

The automotive industry is just one example of many using the concept of rapid 3D prototyping, an automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The prototype is formed from a CAD drawing, and then the machine transforms it into thin, virtual, horizontal cross-sections and then creates successive layers until the model is complete.

The Aquablast Reduces Cleaning Time by 220% to the Aerospace Industry

As a company providing high quality and high precision machining services primarily for the aerospace industry, Redman Engineering was searching for a new machine that would successfully provide a clean finish on small precision, high value mechanical components.
