Wheel matching unit
The marking of the tire for the radial force peak and the marking of the rim for the geometric depth of the rim can be recorded. In addition, the necessary rotational angle between the tire and the rim can be determined by the image acquisition integrated into the machine.
Alternatively, the geometric depth of the rim can be measured in an earlier process and transferred to the matching machine with respect to the position of the vent hole.
The tire already mounted on the rim is pressed by moving segments into the well of the rim; The rim can be rotated through the predetermined angle, and the coincidence of the reference points is rechecked after the necessary correction.
The wheel-matching machine is usually part of the automatic wheel assembly line.
