Our customer Pablo Orbe has set up his very own vapor blasting restoration business in the north of Spain after discovering Vixen’s Aquablast range.
After years of working as an industrial engineer in various industries, Pablo had never come across vapor blasting before. This then sparked an idea of offering this service in his area. As a keen BMW motorcycle restorer, he decided to purchase our Aquablast machine and offer a completely new cleaning practice on classic cars and motorcycles.
“I bought the machine to bring a new market here in Spain and a service I couldn’t find before!”
Now Pablo uses our Aquablast 1215 to blast clean anything from engines to carburettors. The choices are endless with our wet blasting machine and he has now branched out into the rubber and metal industry but using different abrasives to produce the correct finish.
“The Aquablast is perfect with solid construction. It is reliable and I am really amazed at the results. It performs fantastic and allows me to produce fantastic quality results in a short time and in a very clean way.”
Vixen’s range of Aquablast machines clean by Flow rather than impact using a completely dust-free process. This is not only safer and beneficial to the operator, but the wet blasting technology produces a softer satin finish. The Flow of water lubricates parts and prevents any Surface damage or dimensional change. Therefore, it is a very popular choice for the automotive industry.
“Vixen has been very professional from the purchase to the set-up process. I have had no problems and they quickly advised me of any doubts I had. They advised me on the correct abrasives and other applications I could do with the machine.”
We wish Pablo the best of luck with his new venture.
