CASE #8:  Lehigh Wheel Repair Machines at High Production Wheel Shop  
Example #8 - From a high production Wheel Repair Machine Shop 
8.1 Who is qualified as high production Wheel Repair Machine Shop?  

There are hundreds of wheel repair machine shops in North America as we know. And the total count of the wheel repair machine shops has been increasing year after year since the year of 2000.  Among all the wheel repair machine shops, however, not every shop is qualified as high production wheel repair machine shop. In general, only those who are repairing more than 100 wheels each day can be considered as high production wheel repair machine shops. 
  
For those high production wheel repair machine shops, the overnight repair and delivery become part of the common business practice in order to be the top players in this very competitive market. In particular, for those high-volume wheel repair machine shops located in major metropolitan area, it becomes very popular. One of the good examples is a high production wheel repair machine shop located in Houston, TX, named “Wheels America”.

​​8.2. How many wheels are machined from a production rim shop each year ?
We just mentioned that only those who are repairing more than 100 wheels a day can be considered as high production wheel repair machine shops.  Among these 100 wheels, in general, you will get 50% wheels with machined surface, which means that about 50 wheels will be machined each day from a production shop.
 
If someone is curious about the wheel count, we can estimate at 50 wheels a day for a typical production wheel repair machine shop. Then, use 20 working days for a month to have 1,000 wheel per month.  The total count will be 12,000 wheels a year. 
​​8.3. Why top quality wheel repair machine is important for production shops?
The answer to this question is very simple that they need a top quality wheel repair machine which not only produces the best finishes for all wheels with machined surface, but also it continues to work every day without any down time !  
​​8.4. How many wheels can be machined without major down time?

For this question, we can have one real answer from a real wheel repair machine shop with a great reputation in Houston, TX, Wheels America.
 
This company purchased their first Lehigh MR-2540 wheel repair machine for diamond cut CNC lathe in the beginning of 2004. Even in that year, the company was already doing high volume wheel repair machine work. In a simple count, more than 10,000 a year. From then, this MR-2540 hi-tech diamond cutting wheel repair machine had been working for continuous ten years before they purchased the second machine in 2013.
 
In other words, their first Lehigh MR-2540 diamond cut alloy wheel repair CNC lathe had machined more than 100,000 wheels in ten years from one wheel repair machine shop continuously without any major down time or major repair. That is the record for a top quality wheel repair machine. They run this machine two shifts each day and five days a week, with continuous production schedule, day after day, week after week and month after month, as NON-STOP production !
 
In the year of 2013, the company had ordered the second Lehigh MR-2540 wheel repair machine for diamond cut CNC lathe productions in order to meet the ever increasing business volume and demand from steady customers in metropolitan area. 

​With two top quality hi-tech diamond cut wheel repair machines from Lehigh company, their workers are able to meet the super busy production schedules. 

​​
Two Lehigh MR-2540 Diamond Cut Wheel Repair CNC lathes are working side by side, day by day, at this production shop for many years now.
This is another example and successful story from high production wheel repair shops in USA and CANADA. When you are in the process to establish your business, the most important investment is to purchase the alloy wheel repair equipments with superior quality producing top quality wheel refinishes, and high reliability giving you peace of mind for meeting your production schedule all the time, day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year.
 
In addition, your best investment should provide you with a top quality machine which runs for many years with trouble-free working record. When you have succeeded in your wheel repair business for many years, you may look back and say something to yourself, that machine was really a great buy !!!
  
The following is the testimonial from Mr. Paul Meyer of this company:
We bought our first Lehigh in 2004, when we got busier, we added a second in 2013.
 
We run two shifts 5 days a week, and both machines are still going strong. If there is ever a problem, I just call Lehigh and majority of the time we get the machine back up the same day with local parts. 
 
Always thanks for Lehigh's help!
