We are selling an excellent example of a used table blasting machine by the highly respected OEM Wheelabrator, part of the Norican group of companies.
OEM – Wheelabrator
Model – MLK1500-2
Contract No – 170029
YOM – 2001
There will be an OEM operating manual available with the sale.
Current run hours (client advises as genuine) are 1,477 – this equates to 86 Hours a year or 1.89 Hrs per week based on a 46 week working year.
Now available as part of an upgrading and reorganisation plan at our client’s site in Birmingham, West Midlands, used wheelabrators rarely come to the market in this condition with so little apparent use.
The overall nominal footprint of this second hand Wheelabrator MLK1500-2 shot blasting machine is :
When both doors are fully open the the machine has a width of approximately 4500mm.
These dimensions allow the machine to occupy a very small footprint, making it a sound investment to those companies who may be tight on factory floor space and/or may wish to bring what could be a sub-contracted process in-house, in order to have better control of their manufacturing cycle.
The machine is fully operational and can be demonstrated working and will be sold with or without the current media that is in the machine.
A particular feature of this second hand table blasting machine is that it has two high efficiency blast wheels enabling an increased coverage of media to component(s), so as to reduce cycle times to a minimum, thus saving energy and wear to the machine.
Please see the videos proving this as you will see how short the cycle time was to shotblast an item.
All the internal linings and table are in excellent condition, with no sign of blow holes, no shot leaking out of the machine and both blast wheels appearing to be showing little signs of wear.
The doors are fully interlocked during and for a short time after the process, thereby complying with the stringent health and safety requirements needed for machinery of this type.
There will be assistance given during the collection of the item (our client will disconnect & isolate mains services) and some further help will be given in skating the item out of the building. The buyer however will be responsible for lifting, loading and rigging.
The machine is located in Birmingham, West Midlands.
In our opinion this is the best used table shotblasting machine in the market that can be demonstrated working, to any interested party and any inspection of the machine is invited/welcome.
