Uttersjobacken - Sweden

Aquablast 1215
Case study overview

Uttersjobacken, based in the North of Sweden, purchased an Aquablast 1215 after discovering Vixen Surface Treatments at The Classic Car Show which took place in The NEC - Birmingham in November 2015. Emil, the owner of Uttersjobacken, spoke with Vixen at the show and trialled one of the Aquablast machines to see how quickly and effortlessly the results could be achieved for himself, which easily convinced him to purchase his own.

Uttersjobacken is a car restoration company which is now expanding and growing more than ever thanks to their new Vixen machine. They restore mostly car parts but have cleaned numerous types of metals such as aluminium, brass and steel parts to prepare them for zinc plating.

Vixens’ wetblasting machines, the Aquablast range, harmoniously degrease and blast many sizes of components. The 1215 which Emil purchased is the medium sized model in the range, which easily fits a wide range of parts inside the blast cabinet, making it a great addition to any workshop that produces an array of components.

Emil, from Uttersjobacken, regularly uses his Aquablast machine and this is what he had to say:

“After seeing the machine at the show I was convinced this was something I needed to invest in!”

“The service provided by Vixen was very professional from start to finish, and the delivery was trouble free to us in North Sweden. Even though we were based in another country the communication between myself and Vixen was always prompt and easy.”

“The high capacity pump and slurry enabled us to process parts quickly and efficiently which was crucial to our business.  The wide viewing window always provides good sight through the screen of the object you are working on.
