EPAGNY, France – The French specialist in wheel-building machinery, Mach 1, launched a new generation of fully automatic trueing robots at Eurobike. It’s developed from the semi-automatic T3W machine the company baptized last year in Friedrichshafen.

The new fully automatic robot T3W-A adjusts automatically the lacing pattern needed for the wheel and the rim profile height when it arrives in the robot. It has 3 wrenches, which simultaneously and automatically do the wheel trueing.

The fully automatic 3-wrench trueing machine is linked to the automatic wheel stabilizing robot from Mach 1. Both machines automatically adjust to the diameter of the rim when it enters the machine. The connection between the stabilizer and the robot results in an adjustment time from one wheel to another that remains under one second only. Total capacity of this wheelbuilding combination stands at about 75 wheels per hour.

Mach 1 claims that its new generation of fully automatic trueing robots combines productivity and flexibility without compromise.

Mach 1 also showed in Friedrichshafen a new economic version of a trueing robot named T2W. This machine uses the standard 2-wrench technology and comes with a digital colour screen for easy handling and control of the robot. Capacity stands at 60 wheels per hour.
