3M Wheel Weights

3M™ Wheel Weights, combined with semi-manual DCS (Dispense & Cut Systems) or even fully automated systems eg. AutoW8t System from ESYS, represent a leap forward in tyre and wheel assembly, dramatically improving the speed, quality and cost of OEM high-speed tyre balancing processes. The systems are designed to use level-wound rolls of 3M Wheel Weights in high-speed, high-volume environments with exacting specifications.

For example in North America 3M and its partner ESYS were honoured on April 23, 2012, with a PACE Award, considered to be the industry benchmark for innovation. View the press release here (pdf, 72 Kb), or read about the global availability of wheel weights and the ESYS equipment (pdf, 72 Kb). Similar cooperation exists in Europe, too.

3M Wheel Weights along with the automated equipment offer:

  • Reduced inventory and overall systems cost.
  • Potential for reduced residual imbalance in the wheel assembly, reducing the number of balance rejects.
  • Elimination of the risk in picking the incorrect weight from the storage bin.
