The Wet Blast process provides component cleaning, degreasing and finishing in one operation. Compared with dry blasting it is less aggressive, does not generate dust, can process components such as titanium without risk of explosion, reduces media consumption and leaves a cleaner, brighter surface finish.

The essential component of a satellite table machine is the indexing mechanism which rotates the workpiece through fixed positions within the blasting machine. Smaller symmetrical parts ( Ø150mm) are best processed in this kind of machine, for example:

- Gears
- Engine disks
- Turbines
- Machined parts
- Shafts
- Pans
- Pots
- Brake and clutch disks

The satellite table machine provides the advantage that multiple parts (10) can be loaded and processed in one single operation.

The Wheelabrator Vaqua satellite indexing turntable is mounted within the stainless steel blasting cabinet. This machine type not only allows the operator freedom for other activities, but also significantly reduces the space requirement for the machine.

Wheelabrator provides highly precise satellite table machines which are specifically designed for use in the automotive and aerospace industries.

This machine has vertical reciprocating twin guns with both speed controls on the spindle rotation and gun movement for automatic operation, creating a fully integrated manufacturing cells.
