Repair, straightening and renovation of car wheel rims
Did you hit a kerb? A dent or bend in a wheel rim often occurs unexpectedly and quickly. We will straighten bent rims right away. Our focus covers all types of rims:
- Aluminium rims
- Steel rims
OTR-EM has its own machine in-house to carry out restoration on car wheel rims. Aluminium rims can usually be 100% restored. By bringing the rim up to temperature and pressing together, it can once again form one whole.
Steps to restore wheel rims:
1. Tyre is demounted from the rim.
2. A specialist of OTR-EM assesses the damage.
3. If the damage is within normal range, the rim is repaired:
Clamping the rim
Heating up the rim
Applying end pressure
Welding tears (if applicable)
4. Cooling down the rim
5. The rim is sanded and painted or polished.
6. Mounting the tyre on the rim and balancing.
Repair, straightening and renovation of truck wheel rims
A broken wheel rim of a truck cannot be restored, both for safety reasons and from an economic perspective.
Repair, straightening and renovation of industrial and agricultural wheel rims
These wheel rims are visually inspected by expert staff for defects and necessary renovation. OTR-EM has its own hydraulic presses to straighten and renovate rims and to prepare them for use.
Renovation and replacement of flanges from 24"
In the case OTR/ industrial wheel rims from 24 inches upwards, it may make sense just to replace the flanges if the rims are still intact. Replacement of the flanges may, for instance, be necessary if the bolt holes have been knocked out. We have the right equipment in-house for fitting the new flange on the rim.
