Considerations Ready to take on a collection of any size, the Hybrid 2.0 is by far the most effective and fastest stand-alone disc repair machine available. Similar to the original Hybrid, but features improved solution delivery for a faster, more aggressive repair. Named for it's combined buffing and polishing repair process, the original Hybrid was an innovation in disc repair. It's small size, automated process and speedy repair made this unit a great fit for processing a high volume of discs. Manufactured from 2003 to 2015, the VMI 3500 is the original VenMill buffing machine, well known by libraries and disc retailers worldwide. Although new technology has replaced this machine, the quick and simple process leaves a shiny finish and provides just the level of repair needed for lightly scratched discs. Designed with small libraries in mind, the VMI 2500 is an ideal fit for occasional disc repair. Released in 2014, the QuickSand is an excellent tool for anyone seeking to salvage discs with severe scratches. This machine cuts through the worst damage in just a few seconds, preparing the disc to be finished in a disc repair machine. The QuickSand can be used in conjunction with any commercial disc repair machine.
