Aquablast 915

ACtronics Ltd has recently invested in an Aquablast 915 wet abrasive blasting cabinet from Vixen, for the surface treatment of automotive components

ACtronics, based in Essex, UK, is a market leader in the rebuilding of electronic automotive components. It operates in 19 different European countries and has resellers based worldwide. They also specialize in providing electrical components for brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Nissan and many more.

Previous to purchasing an Aquablast machine, ACtronics owned a shot blasting unit, where a lot of dust was created during the process.

Manually operated, the Aquablast 915 machine is particularly effective for creating a satin finish on stainless steel along with a wide range of other metals. The Aquablast range is designed to simultaneously blast and degrease components in a quick and easy dust-free process, which achieves outstanding finishing results on a variety of components.

The key to Vixen’s wetblasting process is that the finish is produced through flow of water borne abrasive and not by media impact. This helps to create a finer finish due to the lubrication and flushing action of the water during the process. Vixen’s wet blasting process eliminates media impregnation into the component, and as a result, is vastly becoming a popular choice for companies across the world.

Having recently purchased the Aquablast 915, we are pleased with the impact it has had upon our work. Compared to the shot blasting machine, the Aquablast 915 is much quicker and cleaner. The machine ensures that our products have a high quality finish, which in turn makes our company look professional and customer satifaction is therefore increased.
