ACE & Armex at 2017 ATRA Powertrain EXPO

The picture above shows the ARMEX exhibit at the 2017 ATRA (Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association) EXPO being setup.  As you can see, ARMEX uses an ACE “Soda Plus” soda blast cabinet to demonstrate their soda blast media at trade shows.

#Sodablasting is a great way for transmission and engine rebuilders to clean parts.  Soda blasting is non-destructive, meaning that it does NOT change any surface or dimensional characteristics of the part.  Unlike glass bead blasting, you do NOT have to worry about possible media retention ruining an engine or transmission, since soda is 100% water and oil soluble.  Just blast, rinse, done…no worries.

ARMEX (Arm & Hammer) trusts using ACE soda blasting equipment to demonstrate their product.  If you are thinking about getting involved in soda blasting, shouldn’t you consider it for your engine or transmission rebuilding operation too?

All of our equipment is made in the USA in our Grand Haven, Michigan factory where have have been building all kinds of abrasive blasting equipment since 1976.  Give us a call at 1-888-772-3263 to talk to one of our technical specialists about how soda blasting can help your engine or transmission rebuilding business become more profitable.  You won’t be sorry!
