Guyson Launches Wheelmaster Alloy Wheel Refurbisher
Industrial finishing equipment manufacturer Guyson International has launched a new Wheelmaster product for use in applications such as smart repairs. “This is the ideal machine either as a brand new installation into ‘smart’ repair centres or auto body shops looking to offer a value added customer service by bringing the process back in house from subcontractors or indeed as a replacement for old, poorly performing blast units,” company representatives explained in a launch statement.
Traditionally, individual alloy wheel blasting or etching has been undertaken in a “standard” blast cabinet, sometimes with a side loader and turntable. But interest from long standing customers for a dedicated machine reportedly led Guyson to design the Wheelmaster. As a result the company believes it has designed a solution to the issue of manually loading the heavy alloy wheels into the cabinet.
The front door of the blast machine opens fully to allow maximum access for weight bearing equipment such as electric or hand-powered hoists. The wheel support cradle tilts and pulls out of the cabinet to allow the wheel to be mounted in a vertical position, removing any likelihood of over-reaching whilst loading wheels. The wheel is located on a central spindle and supported by a cross braced circular support.
The blast cabinet is fitted with extra large armholes to allow maximum operator access whilst blasting and the wheel is rotated by hand so it can be blast etched just as easily by left or right handed operators. The all steel blast is said to offer optimum visibility through design features such as a “highly efficient” dust collector constantly removing media dust and fine particles.
Prospective users of Guyson blast systems are encouraged to submit sample components for free feasibility testing to the company’s extensive development workshop located in Skipton, Yorkshire.
