Our wheel press uses air pressure to stress relieve your wheels after building rather than relying on grip strength. Not only does this provide more consistent results as each wheel builder likely has different grip strength but it also helps save your hands from overuse injury and fatigue allowing you to build more wheels throughout the day without discomfort.
Force supplied by piston: *we seem to have our best results between 70-100 psi depending on the build
@50 psi 246 lbs
@100 psi 491 lbs
@150 psi 736 lbs
The air pressure is adjustable with the built in pressure regulator that is easily accessible from the deck of the machine.
Air volume requirements are extremely low so any compressor can power the machine although we do recommend using an air dryer between your compressor and the press but we would recommend a dryer for all air systems regardless of equipment used.
Maintenance is extremely low with the rebuildable piston being rated for 5,000,000 cycles.
All non moving parts are guaranteed for 5 years with the pneumatic parts being guaranteed for 1 year against manufacturer defects.
The wheel press can accommodate anything from 100mm hubs on road rims up to 197mm fat bike hubs laced to 100mm rims. If you have a unique build that falls outside of this we can custom make you a new die that will adapt it to nearly anything used on bicycles.
It will clear rims up to 29″ / 700c. The cutout can be made to accommodate BMX sizes by request but by default is made to work with 26″ thru 700c.
We will custom laser etch your company logo on the front name plate at no additional charge.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any further questions on our machine.
*all stress relief tables are built to order so please allow for 2-4 weeks to ship but we will always strive to get them built as quickly as we can. If you need yours quicker, please reach out to us via our contact form and we will see if we can accommodate.
