Colmec inaugurated its in-house rim factory in January 2022 in newly renovated facilities of approximately 1,000 sqm. We are excited that this additional large investment in our sustainability efforts is now operational and makes it possible for us to efficiently reuse rims and give them a new life. All refurbishment and coating of truck and bus rims is now done in-house using the latest technology and the most advanced machinery. Our entire process is customized for truck and bus rims, which ensures a uniquely high-quality result.
We give rims a new life while also minimising our environmental impact.
Choose Colmec products and rest assured that you made the right choice for the environment!
How rim refurbishment works
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.
