Aqua Wheelblaster & Vertical Wheel Lathe
Rindt-felgen in Oberhausen, Germany purchased Vixen’s ultimate wheel repair package after witnessing the results at a recent trade show.
In October 2019, Rainer Rindt the owner of Rindt-felgen, visited our stand at the TASC trade show. Having witnessed the results first-hand, Rainer decided to purchase the Aqua Wheelblaster and Vertical Wheel Lathe for his workshop.
Rindt-felgen has been established for over 30 years now and offer a range of services to its customers including alloy wheel repair, powder coating and widening motorbike wheels such as Harley Davidsons.
Vixen’s sales engineer Terry recently visited Rainer in Germany to deliver the two days inclusive training on the Vertical Wheel Lathe.
Terry went through all aspects of the wheel lathe with Rainer and his team. This process includes loading a wheel correctly, mapping the wheel, safety passes and cutting.
Terry also commissioned the Aqua Wheelblaster, which Rainer was already familiar with after using the machine at the exhibition.
The Aqua Wheelblaster and Vertical Wheel Lathe are designed to fit seamlessly into any automotive workshop like Rindt-felgen and to provide rapid results. This means customers like Rainer can repair alloy wheels quicker than ever!
With the Vertical Wheel Lathe Rainer can remove kerb damage and reproduce the diamond cut finish to the wheels in a matter of minutes. Vixen’s lathe features a user-friendly Windows operating system which is available in all European languages and laser probe technology to map wheels in just 30 seconds.
The Aqua Wheelblaster he also purchased from the show is the ideal machine for preparing wheels. This wet blasting machine washes, cleans, degreases and creates a key to prepare wheels ready for painting, machining and lacquering. This process takes as little as three minutes!
After the two days of training on how to use the machines, Rainer and his team were very impressed with the training and said: “The wheel lathe and the wheel blaster allows us to save a lot of time and money, offering a better and quicker service by preparing the wheels professionally and creating a superb finish".
“We can now offer a quicker and better alloy wheel restore service thanks to the Vertical Wheel Lathe and the Aqua Wheelblaster we recently purchased from Vixen. Those machines enable us to continuously treat alloy wheels, refurbish them close to brand new.

We are very happy with the procedure -from buying to delivering the machines – at the hands of Vixen’s service and sales team.
We discovered the machines at the TASC exhibition in Düsseldorf and were very impressed with their performance. Vixen kept all of their promises such as in time delivery and the included training, which was very good. I’m very grateful for that.”
