Micro-Poise is now shipping its Automatic Rim Changer (ARC) for passenger tire uniformity machines.

February 25, 2011

Micro-Poise now provides automatic rim changing for its ASTEC® PLUS passenger tire uniformity machines.  Using patent pending technology, the Automatic Rim Changing (ARC) mechanism is available as an option for the tire uniformity testing machines.

The ARC enables a fully automatic change of rims (tooling) without any manual operator intervention.   

This unique design allows for safe and efficient rim changing and storage of multiple sets of upper and lower rims.   The system keeps track of tooling sizes in the storage facility.  The ASTEC PLUS knows which tire type is entering the machine.  Using that information, the ARC system can automatically choose and exchange the appropriate rim set for the tire type.

With the ARC option, the tire manufacturer gains flexibility in set-up, operation flow and maintenance of the tire testing line.

Micro-Poise Measurement Systems, LLC is the leading global provider of measurement and inspection systems and aftermarket services for the tire and automotive industry.  For both passenger car and medium truck radial tires, Micro-Poise continues to provide a complete line of uniformity machines, dynamic balancers, geometry measurement systems and, through our Collmann GmbH affiliate, X-Ray systems.
