HT - Rim Taper


The new Inline Rimtaper from Holland Mechanics assembles fully automatically the rim tape around a laced wheel. This machine has two coil holders, which can contain two different sizes of rim tape.

The Rimtaper can be placed inline, which means after the lacing/tightening machines and before the final trueing machines. In the same sequence you can  combine this with quality stabilizing.

Rimtaping has always been a time-consuming manual process in the final tyre mounting. The search for the valve hole and the difficulty to keep the tape correctly in the rim bed is time consuming and always needs corrections. This manual process can now be replaced by automatic taping, which improves the assembly quality to 100%.
