RSM 240 Rim Straightening machine and lathe unit COMEC
RSM 240 is designed and manufactured to repair by straightening all kind of steel, aluminium and alloy wheels with range diameter between 10" and 24".
The system uses an easy to handle hydraulic cylinder actuated by an hydraulic unit that, conveniently positioned, pushes on the damaged part of the rim taking it back to the original shape. Such operation is made easier with the aid of a wide set of shaped punches that perfectly lean to the different rim profiles.
Furthermore the hydraulic cylinder is provided by a pressure regulation system with manometer (PRP100) which allows the adjustment of push force in accordance to the material on work.

Modified steel rim
Is the rim true enough? The center of the rim has been cut off, modified and welded to the backside of the rim. I also made the rim 2" wider.
This is the first rim I've modified the centre. I've still got lots to learn.
I think a MAG welder would be better for welding rims because they are very hard to clean perfectly.
I also show the lathe tools I've ended up using for parting rims.
