Vixen Surface Treatments will be showcasing its Smart Wheel Repair equipment at this year’s Automechanika Birmingham from 4-6 June 2019.
Taking to the stand will be two of Vixen’s most popular machines designed for the Automotive industry: The Vertical Wheel Lathe and Aqua Wheelblaster.
The two machines make the complete wheel repair package to any workshop, by removing kerb damage and to prepare wheels for machining or lacquering.
First showcased at last year’s event in Birmingham, the Vixen Vertical Wheel Lathe proved very popular with its visitors. This compact machine is the easiest lathe in the market which scans wheels in under 30 seconds and reproduces the diamond cut finish with a Windows operating system.
The Panasonic laser probe technology ensures a precise finish, with the cast iron bed for rigidity.
The popular Aqua Wheelblaster machine combines the standard six-step process for preparing alloy wheels into one. Using Vixen’s wet blasting technology, the process uses water mixed with abrasive to surface treat the alloy and provide a key for the next stage of alloy wheel refurbishment.
The automotive event will also be one of the first opportunities to see the company’s newly launched smartwheelrepairs.com website.
If you’re attending Automechanika Birmingham this year, make sure you pay Vixen a visit to see the results for yourself.
