Wet blast surface treatment specialist Vapormatt, has completely upgraded and re-equipped the company’s International Demonstration Vehicle (IDV) which, over the past few years, has travelled widely throughout Britain and continental Europe to demonstrate the benefits of wet blasting for a wide variety of surface cleaning, degreasing, finishing and treatment applications. These include the surface preparation of composite materials prior to bonding, heat scale removal from aluminium extrusion dies, the refurbishment of automotive parts and the cleaning of aircraft wheels.
The IDV – repainted in Vapormatt’s new corporate livery – is now ready to take to the road again, giving companies the opportunity to arrange a visit to their own premises to view wet blast technology in action and have the opportunity to process their own sample components.
The spacious interior of the 7-metre long self-contained vehicle features three fully operational wet blast machines: a ‘Vapormate 1’, a ‘Panther 3’ and a ‘Lynx 10’, which have processing enclosure sizes of 700mm x 700mm x 700mm, 995mm x 700mm x 700m, and 950mm x 950mm x 1350mm, respectively. These three manually operated machines embrace wet blast applications ranging from workshop or garage small parts cleaning and degreasing to full production surface treatments such as cosmetic finishing and wet peening.
There is also a comfortable seating area, a DVD player to show installed machines in-production in different areas of manufacturing, a computer link to Vapormatt’s informative website – www.vapormatt.com – and on-board coffee and tea making facilities.
