Wairarapa Mobile Media Blasting based in New Zealand offers mobile blasting services covering anything from cars, buildings to bridges and heavy machinery.
The team visit customers to surface blast for preparation and refurbishment and noticed an increased number of enquiries referring to blasting smaller items. This included components such as motorcycle engines, car motors and anything aluminium that needed a more delicate cleaning treatment.
That’s when the owner Evan Morgan researched into wet and dry blasting cabinets and discovered Vixen.
“We did an enquiry to Vixen in the UK and they were fantastic. We ended up purchasing a 1215 Aquablast and it arrived in a real timely manner.”
Wairarapa Mobile Media Blasting uses our Aquablast 1215 machine to blast and degrease softer metals such as alloy, copper and brass. Anything that can fit in the machine – they can clean it.
Vixen’s vapor blasting technology cleans by flow rather than impact, resulting in a soft satin finish. The addition of water lubricates parts so no surface damage or dimensional change occurs, unlike dry blasting. This result is preferred and admired more so in many applications especially the automotive industry. This method allows Evan to achieve a more polished finish which has left his customers extremely happy.
“The Aquablast machine has helped our business provide an extra service for a lot of people in the automotive business and also the general public who are restoring vehicles. Customers are extremely happy with the finish. Another string to our bow…”
“Before purchasing the Aquablast 1215 wet blasting cabinet machine the company had previously been using the large mobile unit, although they use this machine for mobile servicing they found that the smaller items were left with just a dull paintable profile.. Not a nice satin cosmetic finish they can now repeatably achieve with our 1215 model.
“Vixen was excellent with prompt and timely responses to any questions. The Aquablast certainly is a well-made machine that is designed and built to last for many years of service!”
Thanks to Evan and the team for their kind feedback and we wish them the very best years ahead with their blasting business.
