A Vertical Lift Cylinder Solves Problems for a Tire Assembly Plant
A tire assembly plant had a problem orienting the hub centerline parallel to the centerline of the axle since there is a close fit between the hub ID and the axle ID. The tire assembly must be rotated to align the hub key with the axle keyway. Further complicating the situation is the various tire sizes, which range from 36 to 94 inch diameter and 18 to 49.5 inch width and up to 6,000 lbs. Learn how a vertical lift cylinder provided a safe, ergonomically designed solution.
