UDD Blast Wheel

Bronco UDD Blast WheelIndustrial Associates and Bronco Blast Equipment pioneered the direct drive airless shot blast wheel in 1981. For decades our blast wheels have been powerful, heavy-duty and easy to service. In 2018, we released our new generation of UDD Blast Wheels. The Bronco UDD Blast Wheel design reduces maintenance time, eliminates complexity and sets a new standard as the best value in a heavy-duty blast wheel. Upgrading to the Bronco UDD blast wheel means decreased cycle times, long parts life, easy part replacement and reduced downtime during regular maintenance.
