How rim refurbishment works

Renovering av fälgar - blästring

01. Blasting

With advanced technology and high precision, the robot follows the contour of the rim to a degree of cleanliness of Sa 2.5-3.

The coating is achieved with unique Swiss-developed advanced powder coating technology.

03. Curing and cooling

The colour powder is cured in a time-controlled oven at 200 degrees and then continues into the cooling area before quality control.

04. Quality control

The cured coating is assessed via thickness measurements and adhesion tests before the rim is approved.

Rim exchange system

To further increase our service levels and minimize delivery times, we have implemented an exchange system for rims. When the customer provides a complete wheel, they also choose the type of rim to be delivered back on the complete wheel.
