Wheel Repair Machine - Lehigh Rim Straightener
Based upon the statistics by US Publisher Ward’s, more than 1.1 billion motor vehicles in use as of the year of 2010. This number of bent rims is a very small percentage of the cars, which is actually increasing every day.
There are multiple kinds of processes available for fixing bent wheels or rims. However, the most popular one is to use the hydraulic system due to its simplicity, which could fix the bent rim quickly, provided that you have a great wheel straightening machine with the following features.

A. Easy Installation with Lehigh SR-2410 Wheel Straightener
One of the most important features for any wheel straightening machine is that it can support and secure the bent wheels onto the machine base from inside hub and then secure the wheel at the lug hole position since these areas are most likely undamaged.
Forged heavy duty spindle with a high precision 6-jaw chuck is installed on Lehigh Hi-Tech wheel straightening machine.
The soft jaws are fully closed and ready to receive the bent wheels from center hub area.
The soft jaws can move out with the hard jaws from the precision 6-jaw chuck simultaneously for securing the center hub of the bent wheels.
B. Easy Centering with Lehigh SR-2410 Wheel Straightener
When all soft jaws are centered, the wheel is set up on the top of 6-jaw chuck.
Turn the centering handle to move 6-jaws simultaneously until they lock the inside hub.
Now this alloy wheel is not only secured on the wheel straightening machine, but also CENTERED !
C. Easy Securing with Lehigh Wheel Straightener
State of the art Radial Clamps on Lehigh SR-2410 wheel straightening machine.
5 lug radial clamp is installed On Lehigh SR-2410 Rim Straightening Machine.
The last step of the installation: Install and secure the ACME Lock Nut.
Another very important step for working on Hi-Tech Wheel Repair CNC Machine is to do trial-run before actual machining process. In this process, the operator should watch closely to make sure that the cutting insert will follow the digitized profile from the starting point to the finishing point without any deviations. If it does, then, the operator should make the adjustment right there. To carry out this procedure, it is natural for operator to see the wheel mounted in vertical position, which works perfectly on a horizontal lathe like Lehigh Wheel Repair CNC Machine. However, it will not work on a vertical lathe where the alloy wheel is laying down instead.
In order to hold down and secure the bent rim before applying hydraulic force onto the bent rim, the radial clamps with multiple lug hole patterns are designed and manufactured so that most bent wheels can be easily fully secured.
