The auto manufacturer BMW processes between 4,000 and 5,000 every year which means that there are also a lot of wheel/tire combinations that need to be addressed. In this case IRIS-MEC stepped in and provided BMW with a customized version their SR11 Wheel Press that can accommodate larger wheel sizes all the way up to 800mm.
In addition to this, it was noted that the wheels were not only heavy, but also consisted entirely of aluminum. For efficiency, safety and ergonomic reasons the customized system for BMW consisted of a small lift and transferred directly into the enclosed wheel press which ensured that there was no shrapnel to injure any workers. The processed wheels then drop out the bottom onto a conveyor belt where the rubber is then separated from the aluminum on a separator.
