At car repair workshops and other industrial workplaces, employees have to lift heavy car tyres on a regular basis. When the wheel studs are loosened, the wheels need to be transported to the storage. Here, the mechanic collects a new set of tyres and carries them back into the workshop, where the new tyres are properly mounted until all nuts are tightened. This procedure happens several times a day and bears huge risks for all employees involved. In the long run, it might even cause severe damage to the skeleton. A specific lifting device for car tyres helps to minimize the danger of injuries and simultaneously maximize the workflow’s efficiency.
Each year, mechanics face the same challenge: When temperatures drop, customers gather at their workshops to have the summer tyres replaced with winter models. These seasonal changes of car tyres and wheels require a significant amount of physical labour at most garages. Workers must not only lift heavy car tyres, wheels, and rims from the ground, but also carry them back and forth between the shelves and the customers’ vehicles. In order to facilitate this tedious, time-consuming, and physically harmful process, we have designed a new product line which meets the needs of hard-working mechanics.
Whether you are lifting car tyres up from the shelves, mounting them or transporting equipment back to storage – our miniature devices W-Mount and W-Lift will help you along the way. Thanks to these innovations, workers can avoid strenuous movements and thus enjoy a maximum level of safety when handling hefty car tyres.
A car tyre complete with wheel rim weighs about 20 kilograms. If you rely on the wrong method to pick up such a tyre, your intervertebral discs have to withstand a pressure of no less than 400 kilograms. Likewise, your vortices and nerve tracts will suffer under heaving and wrenching activities. Extremely abrupt motions might even result in severe cases of spinal disc herniation.
Throughout this sequence, the W-Lift and the W-Mount complement each other perfectly. Staff can change flat tyres, mount new wheels, or store leftover material without damaging their health. Due to the miniature lifts’ slim design, they leave plenty of free space at your workshop. Learn more about the opportunities and the efficiency of lifters now!
