Tokyo--Kobe Steel Ltd says its latest tyre uniformity tester can accurately measure out-of-balance forces in tyres at speeds up to 200 kph.
In a statement, Kobe said, "The 100D26-LH high-speed tire uniformity machine, developed for laboratory use, has a low center of gravity owing to its horizontal operation. Additionally, in a design that utilizes stronger parts and materials, vibrations created by the machine and tire are eliminated. The natural frequency of the new machine is 350 Hz, double that of conventional machines. The new machine enables more accurate measurements of tire unbalance at high speeds to be taken, in comparison to conventional tire uniformity machines."
