Diamond Cut CNC Machine for Truck Wheel
 Top Quality Rim Repair Machine with Heavy Duty Construction
In comparison with alloy wheel from regular passenger cars, the truck wheels are much larger in diameter, much deeper in depth and much heavier in mass. And their profiles are extended in both X-axis and Z-axis, which can be challenging for regular alloy wheel diamond cut CNC machines.    
One Lehigh Diamond Cut Wheel Repair CNC lathe is delivered to a wheel shop specialized in truck wheel repair service.
Typical alloy truck wheels are much larger in diameter, deeper in depth and heavier in mass. And their profiles are extended in both X-axis and Z-axis.
Heavy duty casting bed to absorb cutting forces and dampen vibrations.  Extra wide bed ways to provide maximum stability and very long travels.
To meet the challenging, Lehigh MR-3360 Diamond Cut Truck Wheel Repair Machine is specially designed with the following special considerations:
 
A. The headstock is manufactured from thick wall and heavily rigged casting to provide a smooth and  quiet turning CNC lathe in order to become continuous working machine for many years operation.

B. Super heavy duty casting bed to absorb cutting forces and dampen vibrations.  Extra wide bed ways to provide maximum stability and very long travels.

Digitizing process for truck wheel with Lehigh diamond cut truck wheel machine.
A large truck wheel is installed and secured with Bison chuck and soft jaw set for Lehigh Hi-Tech diamond cut Truck Wheel CNC lathe.

C. Top quality lathe chuck is very important for diamond cut alloy wheel repair CNC lathe machine. In order to secure large and heavy truck wheels, a super   
heavy duty Bison-America Brand (www.Bison-America.com) 20” 3-jaw chuck with forged steel body is installed on Lehigh Hi-Tech Truck Wheel Repair CNC lathe, with matched soft jaw sets to secure large truck alloy wheels in various dimensions.
 
D. In terms of software design for alloy wheel digitizing and refinishing process, special consideration has been given for the truck wheel due to its profile characteristics extended with both X-axis and Z-axis.
 
In general, we consider “Normal” digitizing as the process when the probe is moving along X-axis which works for most automobile rim profiles. For truck wheels, however, the normal digitizing is NOT workable along the side of the wheel barrel. Therefore, “Side” digitizing is provided to overcome this problem for truck wheels from Lehigh Hi-Tech Truck Wheel Repair CNC lathe machines. This “Side” digitizing is allowing the probe moving straight along Z-axis from bottom of the truck wheel coming up to the lip area.
