Just added an Elite to my business. The easiest learning curve of any of the processes I do in my shop. Training and support thru my sales rep, Andy H is AWESOME! Within one week of getting it in the shop, we are already producing sellable items. Online videos/support is great, and live support is only a phone call away if needed. A+++++ (originally reviewed 08/14/19)
I finally have my new CrystalBlast Elite sandblast cabinet up and running and it is such a game changer for me. I was using an old third-hand unit and this is like night and day. I can’t wait to try halftone and multi-stage carving and so much more. I’m just so happy! (originally reviewed 05/25/19)
I absolutely LOVE my Elite. I've used it a few times and the depth of the cutting is so much better than my old machine. The time is so much faster as well. (originally reviewed 05/01/19)
Outstanding cabinet, I have 3 others for various blasting needs. The cabinet is top notch, well thought out, nice features like tool less nozzle changes etc... Customer service is outstanding..feel like I'm talking with friends who have a deep desire to help me with projects and set up. The only downside..and it's really a strange deal.. is the overhead lighting. In a cabinet that appears to be engineered to a sharp degree the lighting is rather "just put together" and needs addressing. Over all I would definitely purchase again.

The best investment that I have ever made was buying my "Elite" CrystalBlast machine It has changed my world completely. Easy to maintain...works beautifully even in 95 degree Florida weather with 100% Humidity. I can count on its efficiency each and every day. The Ikonics staff have been wonderful to help with any questions, problems and solutions. 17 months post purchase, I am forever grateful I made the decision to buy "The Best Blaster in the Universe".

We had been looking at adding sand carving to our product offerings for several years. After my wife attended a regional school with Andy, she was sure we needed to take a closer look. I had always thought sand carving would be fun AND profitable so I set out to check it out in person at the next NBM trade show that we attended. I met Peter at the Philadelphia show, and he encouraged me to "give it a try". I was amazed with the ease and control provided by the CrystalBlast Elite, especially with the foot treadle...media flow was very intuitive. After my second piece of glass ware blasted, I pulled out my credit card and purchased the show floor model. Soon after our purchase we flew to Brea, CA to attend a free sand carving school at Media Blast to check out the other available models, features, photo resist films, and get some training from the experts. This was a great opportunity to see first hand some of the value added processes (especially color fill) that can further enhance our gift and award business. Touring the Media Blast facility and seeing the cabinets made is definitely a great chance to reinforce just how much quality is built into these USA-made machines. As a career engineer it was already clear to my how much went into these machines (even the welding is a work of art), but I had an even clearer picture. While the subject of this review is primarily around my experience with the sand carving machine, I would be remiss not to mention my experience with Ikonics Imaging as a whole. Through the pre-purchase, purchase, delivery, and postdelivery phases, I have always felt that the growth and success MATTERS to Ikonics. The entire outbound team that we have worked with (Peter, Andy, Dr. Jones) are people that know us by name, know what we do, and are people we call friends. Someone once described them as "Minnesota nice", and I now know what that means. Our experience has been the same with inside sales, and marketing as well .... it's clear it's part of the Ikonics culture. One word of warning is due here, though ... once you become part of the Ikonics "family" you will expect FAR MORE from all of the vendors in your supply chain. I'm very confident that whomever you are dealing with at Ikonics, you will feel like you're their only customer (you're not, I've checked, they have many). In summary, buy the machine. Unlike so many businesses that are "right there with you" until they get the signed check for the equipment, Ikonics builds a relationship. You will have no buyer's remorse here.

The customer service has been better than expected, ease of use is wonderful, learning curve 7 on a scale of 10 (having never blasted before), and expectations of purchasing another machine - excellent. (originally reviewed 05/25/18)
We've been using our CrystalBlast for 4 or 5 years, and it has held up to daily use in our ceramics and glassware sandblasting studio. It was even fairly easy to move from our old studio to our new one, and we've had great customer service whenever replacing a part or troubleshooting. (originally reviewed 03/08/18)
I purchased the CrystalBlast Elite several years ago and, in general, I am very happy with the blaster. My one frustration comes with the location of the air clean off nozzle. This is always in my way when using the blaster and I am constantly concerned that when I move it out of the way, I will drop it onto my glass and chip my artwork. It would be so much more convenient to have the air clean off come from the right side or the back of the left side instead of right next to the blast nozzle. (originally reviewed 02/08/18)
