Machines for test and measurement of light alloy and steel wheels

Almost all world’s biggest manufacturers of wheels and rims for motorbikes, 2 & 3 wheelers, pass-cars, light & heavy trucks, agricultural and construction machinery have at least one machine made by Leonardo in their plants. Leonardo produces the complete range of testing machines for steel and alloy wheels and rims, both to be used in Laboratories and in production line. This gives us a 360° view of problems the wheel makers and Laboratories have to deal with and it allows us to continuously improve our products. We are chosen because of our 22-years’ experience, our know-how, our fast and reliable feedback and our wide portfolio, including spare parts supply, calibrations and after-sales service.

Here below the list of machines we can propose for the production line:

  • Fully automatic machine for dimensional control (Run Out and Harmonics) with Low Point marking
  • Fully automatic machine for unbalance measurement (static and dynamic) with marking systems
  • Fully automatic Helium leak test machine for alloy wheels
  • Semi-automatic machine for air leak testing of steel rims butt weld area
  • Fully automatic machine for air leak testing of complete steel rims
  • Fully automatic or semi-automatic machine for inserts planting in alloy wheels PCD holes
  • Fully automatic machine for dimensional control of steel discs before assembly with the rims
  • Semi-automatic machine for dimensional control of steel rims before assembly with the discs

Here below the list of machines we can propose for the Laboratory:

  • Rotate Bending (Cornering Fatigue) Test machine with different sizes from 5 KNm up to 150 KNm
  • Uniformity machine for complete dimensional control of the wheel
  • Impact Test machine with different tools for International Standards 13°, 30° and 90°
  • Radial Impact Test machine dedicated to German car makers Standard AK-LH08
  • Rim Rolling (Radial Fatigue) Test machine with different sizes (road wheel diameter 1.7m, 3.0m or 5.0m)
  • Biaxial Test machine with outer drum for pass-car wheels
  • Biaxial Test machine with inner drum for pass-car wheels
  • Biaxial Test machine for truck wheels
