Tyres are changing

Tyre changers from Bosch

Published:  01 May, 2014

Two new wheel balancers and a tyre changer are available from Bosch which have many OEM approvals and recognise the market's need for a 24" to 26" turntable. The WBE 4200 and 4400 semi-automatic wheel balancers provide digital read-outs for cars, LCVs and motorcycles and give better access to the inside of the wheel and an improved working position. Using Bosch's Easyfix arm, they take measurements in eight seconds, automatically measuring the diameter and distance of the wheel. They feature a space-saving hood and slim body design and use the Aludata weight sticking system - an external arm is optional. They have 11 programmes for vehicle wheels, five of which are specific for alloys. There is a weight separation programme, five for motorcycle wheels and a static unbalance optimisation feature. The WBE 4400, incorporates all of the useful features of the WBE 4200 but adds the 19" TFT LCD-monitor. Lastly, the new TCE 4450 is a fully automatic tyre changer with a column that tilts and raises, handling wider tyres with a diameter of up to 26".
