Aqua Wheelblaster
Case study overview

Jet-Repair in Düsseldorf, Germany purchased Vixen’s Aqua Wheelblaster after witnessing the results first-hand at the TASC trade show in 2019.

The bodyshop offer a full vehicle repair service from interior to dents, glass paintwork and even wheel repairs.

Jet-Repair has followed in our worldwide customers footsteps by purchasing the Aqua Wheelblaster to quickly prepare alloy wheels ready for re-painting and re-lacquering.

The Aqua Wheelblaster has been up and running for a year now and they are still very impressed with the results and it has worked faultlessly since installation from the show. The operators didn’t require any additional training as they found the machine easy to use at the trade show.

The Aqua Wheelblaster washes, cleans, degreases and etches wheels ready for the next stage in the wheel repair service. This wet blasting process of water mixed with abrasive can clean and prepare a wheel in as little as three minutes! Which means Jet-Repair can process up to 30 wheels a day – unlike manual cleaning or acid stripping.

This machine also uses a dust-free process which is vital for a bodyshop like Jet-Repair where the team can still carry out paintwork as the machine is in use – which is a great advantage compared to dry blasting options.

Özgür Akarsu, the owner of Jet-Repair, said: “We discovered Vixen at the TASC exhibition in Düsseldorf and we were instantly impressed by the Aqua Wheelblaster and how it etches wheels very quickly. The finish is much better than by hand. This machine has sped up our production times and it allows us to offer a better and quicker service. The wheels are prepped professionally – a superb finish. Vixen’s team were great and they are only a phone call away if needed.”
