“We were looking for a solution to fix frequent breakdown of our Wheelabrator shot blast machine VP-18-338.
The machine was installed in 2011 and due to perceived long lead time and high-priced wear parts, our production team relied on local-make wheel parts.
DISA India aftermarket team reached out to us through their local warehouse making parts available next to us.
We challenged them to prove cost benefit. A trial was run with genuine DISA blades and pirated ones at the same time on the machine.
The genuine blades outperformed the local-make blades by more than 3 times in life. We are seeing much improved machine performance and productivity.”
