The wheel assembly line, also known as rim and disc assembly line, is designed to position and press a disc into a rim to form a final wheel. The press is designed to press and hold the disc at a defined position and keep the disc perpendicular to the bead seats of the rim, at all times to keep the run out to a minimum. The torch welders are adjustable to obtain a perfect weld at all positions. The transfer system holds the wheel at a defined position at all times.
The Fontijne Holland wheel assembly line, originally designed for wheel production, can also be used for other applications, where two tubular products need to be attached and welded automatically.
The rim and the disc are positioned and placed on the conveyor of the assembly press.
The disc is pressed into the rim by the assembly press.
The assembly welder welds the disc to the rim.
The Fontijne Holland wheel assembly line does not only manufacture rims. Any sheet metal product that needs to be formed and/or profiled, can be produced on our equipment. If you need assistance with the production of your products, please contact us.
