Customer challenge results in a 3X wear part life trial

“The VH-10/12 shotblast machine from Wheelabrator was installed in 2016 at our Kolhapur factory.

Over a period of time, due to certain factors, our production team relied on local-make wheel parts.

DISA India aftermarket team reached out to us with their local warehouse to offer parts available next to us. We challenged to them to prove if they have a better offering.

DISA team audited the machine and proposed their EZEFIT blades. We checked wheel performance in comparison to another make wheel. EZEFIT wheels outperforms another make wheel by more than 3 times in life. We now decided to replace all other make wheels by Wheelabrator EZEFIT wheels in our shot blast machines. We are seeing improved machine performance and productivity.”
