Aquablast 1215
Case study overview

STIRA, based in Saudi Arabia produces engineering components to customers in Saudi Arabia and internationally.

Prior to using the Aquablast machine, the cleaning process was done manually with procedures such as buffing.

They purchased the Aquablast 1215 to help prepare mechanical components for surface coating. This includes cleaning the surface of parts such as sheet metal before chromating and powder coating procedures.

Vixen’s Aquablast range ensures a superior finish by using a wet blasting process. This method cleans by flow as the water acts as a lubricant and allows the media to clean the components. 

Mathew from STIRA, said: “The Aquablast machine has helped us improve our quality and productivity.

“We even contacted Vixen for technical support to resolve an error showing and their support was very helpful. They give us online guidelines and installations to follow easily.”
