Aqua Wheelblaster
Case study overview

Classic Auto Group based in Michigan, USA prepare alloy wheels, repair automotive parts and are currently exploring other opportunities now they have their Vixen machine. Before Classic Auto purchased the Aqua Wheelblaster machine, they prepared their wheels by hand which consisted of sanding and using a scuff pad, then washing the wheels with a degreaser and soap.

Preparing the wheels manually was extremely time consuming and hard work. So this is why they decided to look for a different process which led them to the Aqua Wheelblaster machine.

The Vixen Aqua Wheelblaster was designed specifically for alloy wheel machining. The machines use wetblasting technology to simultaneously blast, wash and prepare alloy wheels after kerb damage in one quick and simple step, ready for painting and lacquering. The Aqua Wheelblaster combines the standard 6 stage process of manually preparing alloy wheels into one application, reducing processing times from one hour per wheel to just three minutes.

Troy the owner of Classic Auto, purchased the Vixen machine through Rick from who is one of Vixen’s many distributors in the United States.

Troy from Classic Auto said “Since purchasing the Aqua Wheelblaster machine, this has cut our labour time in half and has really sped up the process. The Aqua Wheelblaster machine also produces great results! Much better than what we were achieving manually!

He then went on to say:

“We have been so impressed with the machine, we are now looking into exploring other avenues and future opportunities for our business!”

“We received excellent service from Rick at and Vixen provided a great quality product!”
