Bead Seat Optimizer

Hofmann bead seat optimizer RSO –
Optimization of the tyre seat on the rim

The automatic bead seat optimizers from Hofmann pass lateral and/or radial forces into the tyre side wall to optimize the seat of the tyre bead on the rim. The imbalance and tyre uniformity measured values can only be determined accurately with a seated tyre bead.

 

The bead seat optimizer from Hofmann is available in the following variants:

  • RSO-KR:
bead seat optimizer with four radially arranged tapered rollers
  • RSO-SR:
bead seat optimizer with two laterally arranged rollers, opposite to each other
  • RSO-LW:
bead seat optimizer with a radially arranged load wheel, on swivel bearing

 

RSO-KR Bead seat optimizer with four radially arranged tapered rollers:

Reifensitzoptimierer RSO-KR

RSO-LW Bead seat optimizer with a radially arranged load wheel, on swivel bearing:

Reifensitzoptimierer RSO-LW

The latter can be delivered optionally as a twin station machine to shorten the cycle time.

Sound protection is provided because of the noise developed by the wheels under load.

The bead seat optimizer is typically a part of the automatic wheel assembly line.
