A.W.R Ltd uses Vixen’s Wheel Repair Package

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Ltd in Teesside purchased Vixen’s Vertical Wheel Lathe and Aqua Wheelblaster to offer a one-stop-shop for smart wheel repairs.

Unlike manual cleaning, the Aqua Wheelblaster is a vapor blasting machine that blast cleans and etches the wheel in as little as 5 minutes.

Which means AWR are able to prepare up to 30 wheels in a day!

The Aqua Wheelblaster uses a dust-free process which makes it suitable for any paint shop environment and safe for the operator. With superior results every time, there is no need for stripping chemicals or to prep by hand.

After noticing an increasing demand in refurbishing diamond cut alloys, AWR began to research how to quickly repair these types of wheels and that’s when the decided to invest in another Vixen machine.

After six months of having the Aqua Wheelblaster, AWR purchased our Vertical Wheel Lathe and received two days of inclusive training with a skilled engineer.

The Vertical Wheel Lathe uses a Windows system which is familiar to all operators that acts exactly like a computer. The Panasonic laser maps wheels in as little as 30 seconds and then precisely cuts the alloy to remove kerb damage and reproduce the diamond cut finish.

This means the bodyshop can offer a same-day service and are continuing to expand with more and more satisfied customers!

We purchased the machines because of the build quality, as they are built inhouse and came highly recommended. The Aqua Wheelblaster and Wheel Lathe has increased productivity and we are able to provide a same-day service. A great bit of kit!

The training we had with the engineer was great, very thorough and easy to follow. Vixen are really nice and we are currently in talks of purchasing another wet blaster.
